Our Fave Christmas.

Hello and good morning...

Our main purpose here at IE is to challenge ourselves, each other and YOU to take the creative process to the next level;  to inspire growth and change in our scrapbooking beyond our usual boundaries.
You can see all of Inspiration Elevator's previous challenges on Facebook .

 This month's challenge is issued by the creative Lisa Moen. Lisa is a busy scrapbooker who takes on every creative challenge with gusto; she works layering and clustering beautifully. This month she has a seasonal challenge for us. Here it is in her own words: 

" Scrap A Christmas Past.
We all have them- one Christmas that sticks out more in our minds than others. Maybe it was when you were a child or maybe it was more recent. Maybe it was a gift you received that makes it memorable. Maybe a special visitor? Create a page, with or without photos and tell us the story behind that Christmas.."

I decided to scrap the year that our lil December baby was born. Her original due date was Dec 22, but I was scheduled to have her on Dec 15.. well she decided to be early and was born on her own on Dec 7th. Well let's just say, really our only focus that Christmas was our new little baby. I don't recall anything I got for Christmas that year and our gift giving was probably pretty small. But we just enjoyed her and her coming into our family.

I used some Echo Park papers for this page. I added some journaling about why it was our fave christmas here:

And then fussy cut the ornaments for the bottom of the page:
