(Christmas) WISH - Scrapbook Circle One Item Wonder

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday!
We have been so crazy busy with Christmas activities and I haven't had much of a
chance to blog anything.  Just when school let out and I started to catch up I spent 2 days
in bed with strep.  Feeling better now and ready to celebrate the end of December and
the New Year making up for the last week of sickies!
 
This is my layout from Scrapbook Circle's One Item Wonder using the "Made of Stories"
December kit with the focus on the Chickaniddy enamel stars.


You can see the original post HERE as well as the awesome Guest Designer, Gail Linder's layout.
 
 
My son was born a month early on the 21st of December...it was a stressful time but was one of my most amazing blessings.  He says he loves having a birthday close to Christmas because everyone is celebrating and all together.  Amazing how it takes a kid to put things into perspective.
 
 
I decided to use the stars not for Christmas but for embellishments about a birthday.  I made a grid
using pictures of each birthday candle wish...using the stars and silver numbers to label each birthday. 

 
 
I can't wait to add an 8 yr. old follow up page next to this layout and seeing the changes
that 12 months make in my favorite Christmas present!
 
Thanks for stopping by and have a safe and happy holiday!!
