So I did this layout about my son's Kindergarden class making these awesome snow globes last year for Christmas and titled it Heirloom in the hopes that it would be passed down from generation to generation. Well when we finally got around to putting up our decorations this year when we opened the box the water in the globe had turned all brown and murky. I don't have the heart to throw it out yet but I don't think it will make it as an Heirloom.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

One of my favorite things about Christmas is the music. I love listening to my favorite Christmas CD's and listening to my kids perform at their school concert and piano recitals.

This layout was done with the Scrapbook Star December kit and is from Linden's school concert last year.

I love making ornaments for our tree and for friends and family. This year I had a brilliant idea for an ornament - I wanted to make a little winter scene in a ball. I was laughing so hard by the time I got everything to stand up and the glitter in the ball but I love how it turned out :)

I used the December Scrapbook Star kit for the Bella Boulevard paper and Maya Road Pin (aka snowman) and the ornament and trees were from Michaels.
