Simple Stories {25 Days of Christmas}

Two of my favorites come together…

Simple stories and Christmas.

I created this little Christmas Mini as a sample for Paradise Scrapbook Boutique.

Be warned: There are a lot of photos in this post.

I was so excited on Christmas morning last year.

I really wanted to capture my children’s reactions as they opened their gifts.

But I was too caught up in the splendid moment. Not very many photos were taken.

I will be better about Christmas Morning photos this year.

I brought out the glitter for this project. Glitter, glitter everywhere.

I am still finding glitter on my face and it’s been a week.

I love how the Simple Stories paper lines always have lots of elements on their papers; each element can be cut out and used as embellishments.

I went a little crazy with machine stitching.

I love the way that machine stitching makes everything look homemade.

Finally.  Last Christmas is now documented.

Just in time to start getting ready for this coming Christmas. Yep, only a little over 3 months away.

And yes, I’m already thinking about Christmas…especially since my family is having a Handmade Christmas this year.

Am I the only one already thinking about Christmas?

Please say that I’m not the only one.

XOXO, Christie
