PAGE ONE: SCRAP AFRICA SKETCH CHALLENGE JANUARY
For my first page I interpreted a sketch from Scrap Africa found at:
My fiance from Sweden celebrates Christmas on the 24th, and I really didn't need much excuse to open the presents earlier! I used the four squares for the photos and stretched the sketch to two 8 x 8 pages....
My second page is a DT assignment from Lasting Memories, this weeks theme is "captured moments". Perfect for these photos of all of us unwrapping presents as we capture - the look on everyones faces as they discover what they have received!
LM has a "life moments" theme this month with 4 different challenges you can enter at the following site:
PAGE THREE: Lets get Sketchy Week 3 January
I turned this weeks sketch (below) sideways and stretched it across two pages. We took some family photos with my mother in law on christmas morning, and she supplied some Christmas bush to bring to my mothers.

PAGE FOUR: Picture this January 1st challenge
The first official challenge over at Picture this requires one photo, a starburst and paint. I managed to include all of these in my next album page. This is my kids at 3am, after discovering Santa had arrived when they got up mid morning for the loo. My daughter must have been really good because she got everything on her Christmas list..... Here she is proudly showing them off after running in to wake me and let me know she got a robodog that does backflips.
Picture this is a great new challenge site - and it even has some free sunburst cut files.... you can join in over at: http://picturethischallenges.blogspot.ca/2015/01/jan-1st-picture-this.html
PAGE FIVE - SCRAPMUCH JANUARY SKETCH #1
There are so few sketches for double pages, I had to use this one from Scrapmuch! This page is all about Aelira, showing every present she got from grandma this year - she was looking cute with a green ribbon stolen from the wrapping paper....

PAGE SEVEN: LASTING MEMORIES #228
This weeks theme at Lasting Memories is just perfect for my Christmas album... Im sure that the food is a major part of everyones Christmas celebrations! For this weeks challenge "Sweet as can be" I decided to use this picture of the gingerbread cookies my kids decorated for Santa (and for the rest of us as well)
Its also a perfect excuse to showcase some more of my Graphic 45 Nutcracker sweet collection...
Sweet cookies, sweet kids and sweet collection! Think I nailed it....
Make sure you drag out all those photos of cakes/ sweets or christmas feasts and come and join in over at Lasting Memories this month!
