Post Christmas

I hope you all had a great Christmas.  Once again I ate too much.  I think it was because we had two big Christmas meals almost in a row.  One on Christmas Eve with my family, which was great.  The other on Christmas Day with Simple Church.  One tried not to over eat but with the two so close I don't think I had completely digested the first lot before we had Christmas Day.  Ah Well I will work it off quickly.
 
I have been enjoying the break from work this week and I have even given myself permission to scrapbook for myself and here are a couple of layouts I have done.  It has been just so nice to sit and create with no pressures.
 With this layout I used some of the Imaginisce Wild Things paper with some green and brown plain papers.  I printed many of my photos to 3x4 so that I could get more photos on the layout.  This layout was of the family Christmas Party from my husbands work, it was held at Kiwi Valley which is just around the corner from us.  I had a lot of fun creating the layout in the afternoon on Christmas day.  What a great way to just chill out.  I had a lot of fun inking the edges of the journaling block using the Walnut Ink from the Distress Inks collection.
 This is another layout I created on Christmas day afternoon.  This is of Miss M and her favourite teacher at school.  Here I used the Making Memories Paperie paper for my background and a Kraft Giant tag from Bazzill with some flowers and the lettering is from the Alphlicious cartridge for the Cricut.
This last layout I have used the Modello collection from Upsy Daisy with a splash of bling and some flowers.  This was a lot of fun to create and relatively quick, it just sort of fell together.
I layered some flowers and added some buttons to the centers that were a similar colour to Miss M's top she was wearing.

I went down to my local photo shop and got even more photos printed so no doubt I will have more to share soon.

Also some new product arrived just before Christmas so I will have to put those on the online shop soonish.  Might give you a sneak peak another day - LOL!
