Just trekking along...

Good evening to all of you! I had a mocha way too late in the day so I really feel like I can conquer the world right now! However conquering the world is loud, my family is trying to sleep, and I must do with conquering my Christmas pictures! And that is quite all right with me!
I used more challenges from Apron Strings Birthday Challenges and a sketch challenge from Paper Variety to scrap these pictures.
The first layout is pictures from Santa's Pancake Breakfast at church. The girls writing a list, asking if they can have more paper, and me saying really, more paper and Victor being used as a booster seat and spell check! Yep fun family time! This layout was for Birthday Party Day #10 to scraplift a layout by this month's Guest Designer - Krisit Bergin-Smith. I used the layout as a sketch and created my layout on her design.
Our Wish List
The next layout are those pictures you take every year to see how the kiddos change. I take pictures of Amory with candy canes every year because she has a serious addiction! She will start asking for them Mid November and throughout December she will eat three a day at least. No cavities -  knock on wood! And as soon as the sugar hits she goes cuckoo. I mean sky high hyper! Crazy kid! This layout was done for Birthday Party Day #12 to use at least four 1-2" strips of paper; no flames required! The first is my scallop strip under my title, the second(stripe), third (cream) and fourth (peppermint) are layered on top of each other at the bottom of the page. I also used a sketch from Paper Variety on this one!
Cuckoo For Candy Canes
And last but not least - the Christmas Tree page. Sorry for the crummy pic but at 11 pm there is no light in which to take a good photo! I used Birthday Party Day #13 to use the following sketch from Sketchy Thursdays (love this site) on at least two layouts.

Oh Christmas Tree


Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!
