It's been hard the last few months to squeeze in scrap time. So much has been going on with school functions, vacation, and the holidays. Things should be settling down a little bit as much as anyone's life can settle down with 3 kids, so time to try to get some more scrapping done. This LO of Autumn was created using a Stuck sketch. I'm finding with her expanding purple wardrobe, it is easier to scrap with purple. A color that used to be very hard for me.

I've been a bit lacking in taking Christmas photos this year. We've done all the normal traditions but it just seems like been there, done that so why get the camera out. Which I know I will regret. So I thought I would share one I did take. Since the boys were sick Autumn was the only one to get to attend her Christmas party this year. Here she is ready to head to school with her teachers presents.

I love doing blog hops. They provide a little extra challenge to scrapping. Paper Tree House's blog hop had us hopping along picking up new items from each blog that had to be used on our LO, and using all those elements this is what I created. This is Autumn at VBS last summer. She absolutely loves going to church. She is constantly asking "is it church day" or "we go church night". She is not happy if there is a reason we are unable to go, and gets quite a pouty little face.

Of course all of my new papers that I want to play with don't really go with the photos I wanted to scrap. Snow papers don't really go with lake photos. So I dug in and used some of my older stash. A little bit of MME Breaking Free and Abbey Road. It really does feel great to use up some of the old. Makes me feel better about buying new! I couldn't decided which group of photos to use with this sketch from Sketchy Thursdays so I decided to do 2 LO's.
Last year during our 1 in 20 years snow storm Autumn finally got to make a snowman, well she did a little of the work. She was quite proud of her work but when I was scrapping this picture she looked at it and said he has no hat and gloves. It was really cute. I used a sketch from Creative Scrappers.

I finally started scrapping Autumn's birthday pictures from June. We took her to Build a Bear to make her first bear. Of course she had to pick out a pink one and she picked out clothes with Princess's on it. When the lady asked her what she wanted to name it she couldn't decided, there were so many princess names to choose from so she just went with Princess. I used a fabulous sketch I found over at Bo Bunny. I've become quite addicted to their papers!

The kids had so much fun throwing the snow around. They had no time to think of making an actual snow ball. They just picked up big chunks of snow and started throwing it at each other. Of course this just got them wetter and colder and they were quickly ready to come inside. I used a Crafty Sketch for this LO.
I'm on a roll with last years snow pictures. Of course how could I not be with all the gorgeous new winter lines out there. This was the first time Jacob ever made a snowman all on his own. Also the first time we ever had enough snow for him to make an actual snowman without having to scrape all the snow off the cars and every surface around to try to even get enough snow to make a snowman. :) I used a sketch from Stuck On U Sketches.

We can only dream of a white Christmas. We do get snow here at very odd times but to have it snow on Christmas and actually stick to the ground would probably be a miracle. It was pretty cool though, that last Christmas Eve it actually was snowing. It didn't stick of course but it was neat to see. This LO was based off of a great sketch from Sketch Thursday.

Well, that is I'm all done with scrapping Christmas 2009 pictures. Now on to taking lots of photos of Christmas 2010! I always try to snap a few pictures of the tree and stockings after Santa arrives and before the kids turn the living room into a demolition zone. An inspiration challenge from Scrap Fit gave me just the nudge to get these final pictures done.
