Ho! Ho! Ho!  Papier Creatif's Christmas Creatif kit is rockin' the roof top!  I hear sleigh bells ringing just looking at these adorable layouts from these special ladies.  Thank you all so much for your lovely work :)  They inspire me to turn on my Christmas playlist.  Time to start decking the halls.

My parents always made the holidays special and magical for us.  From time to time, the Christmas tree theme would change.  One particular year, the tree was adorned with white feathered doves and red bows ... so sweet.  Wonderful memories ... My creative side was inherited from my Mom and Great Grandmother, who were artists in completely different mediums.  Mom used to do tole painting; one of the Tole Painter Associations charter members, oil painting and floral arrangement. Her Grandmother was a gifted china painter. Later, her father began oil painting in his retirement.

I have always been the primary photographer in the family.  Always interested in old family photographs and have sentimental attachment to the old-style cameras my parents used growing up. Don't you all love looking at photos of when you were growing up decorating the tree?  Great stuff ... 

Digital Scrapbooking is truly an act of LOVE.  Those of us in the circle, know that.

When decorating for the holidays, we load and crank up the CD player!  If you guys want some great music to create a festive backdrop for Christmas decorating {and to make it more fun and not such a chore - because, come on, it's work!!!} or for your holiday dinner music, here's my personal favs listed in order.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
