It is like I can just hear someone yelling out, "Next..." as a signal that Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is just around the corner. Maybe it is just a bad memory of the not-so-nice lady at Toys R Us yesterday morning. I know that there were a million people in the store since 5:00 a.m., but it doesn't give anyone the right to be rude. Thanksgiving was great. The kids are at an age where they just play, which meant Steve and I could actually relax this year. Nathan and Ella both tried turkey and stuffing. Black Friday shopping was fun--love hanging out with my other BFFs even if they do torture me all the time. I am on food overload and haven't scrapped in days, which is making me a bit cranky. But all and all, it has been a great holiday weekend.
To get everyone in the mood for the next holiday, I am sharing a Christmas layout. I used the December kit from The Nook. The tree is actually a die cut and then I used the ribbon and some rolled paper to make the garland and ornaments. It was fun. If you want to see my class on how to put this together, just go here. This Cosmo Cricket line has sooo many pieces to it and so many gorgeous papers. It will seriously go on and on for ages. I have done two layouts, four cards and have several other projects planned! Supplies are limited so grab yours soon! These were the big hits of last year: the dollhouse and pirate ship. And these toys stayed popular throughout the year. Hope Santa has that kind of luck again this year!
Oh, I almost forgot to mention---we are doing something special over at The Nook. Each day in December, a member of the design team will be posting a new card as well as a class to show how to complete that card! We actually started yesterday with Jen's card. So if you haven't done any yet or just want to see some great work, head over to the cards forum each day and check it out.
