Memories

Well the Chatham-Kent area escaped the ice storm but all around us got hit very hard. London, Kitchener, Hamilton and Toronto are between an hour and three hours east of here and they had a lot of freezing rain, trees and limbs down, accidents galore and power outages. And I hear it is still moving east towards Ottawa and Quebec and the Maritime provinces. All we got was rain – and a lot of it. Luckily all my children and grandchildren are safe in all the cities they live in so that’s good. Keeping all those affected in our thoughts and prayers though.

We had a wonderful church service this morning! It was our cantata service. Our church has a HUGE pipe organ and our organist is masterful at playing it. The choir was great and the children were so cute. We have way more girls than boys right now so we ended up with many angels, three wise men but only one shepherd but he did have one sheep with him – someone made a very good full body sheep suit and it was excellent. Some of the little angels read the scriptures throughout the service and one little girl about 6 or 7 sang a solo. You can tell the children are very involved with the church and getting up in front of the congregation is not new to them at all. Wonderful start to the week and lifted my spirits big time.

So, I thought I would post another Christmas layout. This is my youngest daughter and her husband and two sons.
Pretty easy layout. The trees and the strip down the left side were cut from some glitter paper I picked up at a dollar store. The other paper was cream cardstock that was inked with green and yellow so it would blend in with the other paper. The title started out as plain chipboard but I sponged alcohol inks over them to get the right colours. The snowflake was also die cut with two of the Spellbinder Snowflake dies and green glitter was added as well as the red dots. I added the red ribbon to pick up on the red stocking and the red package and teddy bear clothing. When you have one main colour throughout the pages, the eye automatically follows that colour and goes around and around the pages.

Here is a close-up of each page.

 
Take care everyone!

Cheers

Violet

Love your scrapbook layouts. You are masterful ! I have such a daunting task ahead of me as far as scrapbooking....Years and years worth...i hardly know where to begin....

I'm so glad you and yours are safe. We need rain BAD. Central Ca gets no rain from about April thru Nov.... thats normal but our rainy season should have started a month and a half ago at least and still nothing....still we wait... daytime temps in the 60's! It could be spring. Have a wonderful holiday Violet. Hubby and i don't go to church but sounds like your service was beautiful! Hugs! deb
