Catching Up, part 2

And finally, a few more layouts I completed in December.  They were done to give myself a short break from all the holiday preparation chaos.

This one so we can remember our trips to the flea market.  We head down there every 3-4 months, and sporadically during the summer if it's not too hot.

This one, from the December 2009 edition of Scrapstreet Magazine.  A group of us were asked to respond to Stacey's phrase "how can you not?" at our summer meeting.  My response was to document things that I find irresistable. How can you not 1. sigh with pleasure as you slip into a bubblebath, 2. have a favorite color, 3. be passionate about something, 4. play with your kids’ toys, 5. decorate for the changing seasons, 6. want to cuddle a sleeping baby, 7. eat chocolate, 8. love finding the perfect pair of shoes, 9. sing along with the radio, 10. eat popcorn while watching a movie.

And finally, one that epitomizes both boys' dreams for the winter: snow and lots of it.  (To qualify for the northerners reading my blog, "lot of it" here in the south means 1-6 inches, most of which is gone in 2 days.)  These are pictures from last year's March snowfall.  This layout ran in the Pixel Place column of Scrapstreet Magazine's December edition, and featured the digital kit Winter Shimmer.
