My good friend Angelica has a wonderful Etsy Shop called "Angelica's Little Scrap Shop". You know her from her beautiful LO's at check out her beautiful gallery) She has the most beautiful embellishment kits at her shop and she was soooo kind enough to send me a fantastic kit called "Jingle Bells Christmas Embellishment Kit for Scrapbooking" My oh my..It is filled with gorgeous golden shiny sparking embellies. I wanted to fit every single piece in this LO, but I wanted to save some for another LO, so I still have more left that I haven't even used here. From the gold lame ribbon to the beautiful silk flowers, the glistening branches and the fantastic snowflakes, it is all so fitting for an elegant Holiday LO. Go see what she has in the shop. I love everything!! The photo is my nephew years ago, sleeping and waiting for Jolly Old St.Nick to visit. I have used this photo before, but it is one of my faves....Thank you Angelica for the awesome kit!!!I think I may add some more to this LO with what I have left!! Love it!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!! Here are 6 of my LO's from Swirlydoos December kit "My Favorite Things". I have so much more to get out of the kit. I have one that I havent uploaded anywhere because I am so unhappy with it. I am trying to figure out how to save it. You cant get a bad LO with these papers, I am just so critical of myself. I also did 2 cards that I havent uploaded either. I will work on them tomorrow. I found myself reaching for old Christmas photo's of my kiddies when they were younger. Just feeling sentimental I guess. They have always been close even though they are 5 years apart. There was only one year that they fell apart from each other, and that was because Nick (my son) got married and my daughter found that her big brother was gone...He settled into his new life and before you knew it. they were back to their old selves again... Today, Nick came over to try and install Windows 7 onto my Dell, and Gabbie whisked him away to lunch...they went to Chili's...Ya think they would have bought something back for me!!!! LOL... Not even left overs. It is just nice to see these 2 love each other. Makes my momma heart smile!!
