Page Drafts Christmas Edition

A little Christmas
Welcome to "Page Drafts Christmas Edition"
This is the awesome sketch I chose ...catch the rest over at Page Drafts...
 Ahhhh Christmas Gotta be the best Time of the year Yer??
 Here Is my Gorgeous Boy ( sorry bias I know xx)
This photo I love we were up some side street in the heat
waiting for mum to pick us up after the Pagant,
Our first one together...
He was so excited which just made it even more special for me too!!
So this is my interpretation of "Em's Sketch......
These gorgeous papers I used are from an old fav of mine
"Maja Design"
 and the music note is from Melissa Frances 
Indulging in a few close ups.....
I have made pinecones from "Tim Holtz Die"
 my flowers are from magnolia Doohicky Die Poinsettia,
There's some Obsession Impression and Cheery Lyn in there too!!

I embossed the edges and used my Favourite "Snow"
On the Title and Flags/banners..

Close up of my flower... preety Huh!!

Our challenge was to incorporate a Number in our layout
so being our 1st pagent I incorporated the number one
 just above the pinecones and on the flower!!
Here Is a close up of the stencil work ( Tim's Of course!!)
I used model paste then sprinkled embossing powder over it
as I heated it puffed up really nicely!!

Here's a close up of some more details and layers....

(And my little Toothless Boy heehee sooooo cute!!)

Christmas Family traditions
lol "EAT lots!!"
One tradition I guess you can call it that,
is making Christmas slices for our family and
Christmas Day.......and for the next 3 weeks LOL!!
 So I have such fond memories
Of mum and I (and my sibs when they wanted too)
would spend a day making all these yummy
So in tradition My son and I carried it on and we spend a day or 2
making Christmas slices ( great teachers gift!!)
As he loves to cook with me and it was such a special time for me
I wanted to share the same with my boy!
Although have to watch the " Quality Control" heeeheee!!
Well You have to taste to see if they're ok!!
Don't you??? wink!!
Anyway I cant wait to hear about your traditions and see your interpretations
of Em's sketches....
Here's wishing you all a very ,very,
"Merry Christmas"

Happy Craftin
