Celebrate the Little Things

Hello everyone!  I'm so happy to be here today to share a little something with you!  I don't know about you, but I have been amazed by the recent posts by my fellow design team members.  They came up with such wonderful projects to celebrate this wonderful time of the year, and I am definitely taking notes!

My favorite thing about Christmas time is definitely the happiness that surrounds me.  It seems that everyone can wind down, relax, and just enjoy the time spent together.  I love having my kids home from school and my husband home from work. I love going out sledding and coming back to have hot cocoa.  For me, it's all about the little things that I get to do with my family.

This is what this layout is all about.  That evening, I asked my kids if they wanted to make cookies.  The answer was a resounding "Yes!" and so we got to work.  I measured everything for them and they took care of the rest.  It was such a happy time.  I never want to forget about that.

I used the Joyride Christmas collection by CCollage Press that is actually from last year.  It's important to me to use up my stash. I loved the papers when I bought them, why shouldn't I use them even though they are "old"?

A few tags here and there make the layout look current. I'm a huge fan of tags as embellishments. I love to use them to write down dates, short journaling, or even as-is as a simple decoration.  Just pop-dot a few and it can easily transform your page.

I also used Glimmer Mist to splatter the background and to colour some wooden snowflakes by Studio Calico. I left some bare because I liked the look!

Hopefully this can inspire you to focus on the little things this Christmas season. Then go ahead and celebrate them!

Happy holidays everyone,
