LMCB #167 - Christmas Traditions

Our challenge this week at Lasting Memories is "Christmas Traditions". Since we haven't started our Christmas decorating yet, I am showing a 'naked' layout, with photos to come. We have so many traditions in our home as I love Christmas. That and Thanksgiving are my most favourite times of the year. Now that my daughter is older, she's really getting more involved in helping me decorate the house and I love that. Over the yrs, we've aquired so many ornaments, that when I decided I wanted a 'theme' tree, we had to have TWO trees! LOL! Looks so pretty though. So stay tuned for photos to come that will fill these layouts.

I used a new CTMH kit from our "Holiday Guide" called "Sparkle and Shine". Of course I added my own twist on it. I have to say, the bling?? I do not get a long with this stuff as a rule. There's some bad words flying, sweating, red face and frustration normally involved before I let a nasty word fly and throw it in the trash! LOL!! This bling though? O M Gosh! LOVE it!!! CTMH has come up with some way to make it work without binding up and sticking on itself. I loved working with it. So here's my 2 page spread ..

So come on over to Lasting Memories and show us your Christmas Traditions. We look fwd to seeing them and thank you so much for stopping by today!
