Ok, this is the most amazing class I've ever taken - so what if it's the first class I've ever taken! HA! I have completely come to love Shimelle Laine and her glittery posts! She's such a cutie and the Christmas Album class is truly inspiring. And let me tell you, after the sick-filled weekend we've had around here, I could sure use some inspiring!
I think I first heard of Shimelle a year or two ago now when I saw all these amazing albums coming out of her holiday album class. I immediately had put it on my "to do" list and then (as is par for the course) promptly forgot. I was reminded again last year when my friend Lisa signed up to take it, but this year's excuse was that I was too late. Apparently, I just don't "do" Christmas when it comes to scrapping. It must be the lack of time, the lack of decent pictures, the lack of something and well, it just never gets done.
So this year I was determined to be different and this time I am actually doing it! I've had such a ball and was hoping you don't mind me sharing a few pages here and there. I'm desperately behind, but swimming to catch up!
I decided to use a small 6x6 SEI album and all BasicGrey papers - from the Blitzen/Dasher lines. My common element (as I'm sure you'll soon see) is a little cut out tree that you'll find somewhere on every page.
Here is the Cover and Title Page:
The Dedication Page and Christmas Weather Page:
My Advent Calendar & Card Pages:
The mini card on this page is actually a replica of the Christmas Cards I sent out this year.
Holiday Shopping and Views of Christmas Around Us Pages:
Ok, I have to say by FAR the shopping page is my fave ;)
Thanks for letting me share! Hope you had a wonderful, stress-free shopping weekend!
