Bribes or Threats?

OK – so every year I ask the kids to don Santa hats and we do a little photo shoot – I always love the pics that I get.  This year the kids weren’t being cooperative (imagine that  – teens not cooperating !!) and I got a few unsmiling pics.  So I’ve been thinking of what I can use as a bribe or threat to get some better photos. Of course now the snow is gone but hopefully there will be some by the weekend

Here’s a page I created for CREATE magazine  with some happy snow pics




It’s December Already

And all our snow has melted !!  I’m planning on trying to do a December daily but although I’m great at starting things I’m not so good at finishing them ! My album may not be too Christmassy – what with no snow and this year we’re heading to Costa Rica for the holidays – definitely no snow there.

However – I will be sending cards and gifts so here is a Christmas tag I created for Scrapbook Generation’s CREATE magazine  I created a tree cutfile then pop dotted it over strips of washi and paper


Merry Christmas to All

It’s going to be a very laid back Christmas here thankfully – I just love having the luxury of not having to be somewhere at a specific time.  I’m going to be building my jigsaw puzzle and browsing through the new edition of Get Inspired – so much inspiration for the holidays – and I have a few pages in there too
