Let It Glow

Hi There,

This is Yvonne from Ink-spirations. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. My daughter came home so everything was great. Today I'll get to skype with my son and his family while they open Christmas presents! Isn't technology wonderful.

My project I'm sharing is actually decorating the tree with my son and family in 2011. I had visited early in November so I could be part of the decorating so they purchased an artificial tree.
It was my Grandsons first Christmas that he could really help with the decorating. It was so much fun.

The pattern paper was from a Christmas pack by The Paper Studio called Holiday Wonder. Remaining cardstock Bazzill. I had lots of picture as so created an illusion of how we used to hand our Christmas cards - on a string usually hung against a wall. Now fewer people actually send cards.
Lots of glitter and bling used on the pages - after all it is Christmas!

Wishing everyone all the best for 2013!
