Getting Ready for Christmas!

I know it has been awhile since I posted, but life has just been crazy!!! I got moved to California in the latter part of September and have finally finished my classes for the semester :) So, now I can get down to business......

I held a 6x6 Scrapbook class and have some ladies ready to start a monthly class in January...can't wait!!! I have found so many awesome products to work with. It is going to be loads of fun putting together all of my ideas.

In the meantime, I am helping my mom decorate for Christmas and this is the first decoration that we hung up today.....



My sister-in-law had posted this on facebook and I couldn't resist giving it a try :) It was so easy! I added the scalloped circles to the center of mine and made a snowflake ornament using the Festive Flurries bundle from Stampin' Up on top. I followed the directions in the video on their website for the snowflake ornament kit they were selling. I found a sparkly bow to add and tied the candy canes together with curly ribbon......



A little tricky getting the ornaments that were scored into the circle and hot-glued in the center, but with a little patience it all worked out pretty well :) And if all else fails and it falls apart, at least we have some candy to eat....lol!!!

Lots more decorating to do and some time planned with friends and family over the next couple of weeks.....so, in case I don't make it back....I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and I am looking forward to the coming year and sharing lots of fun ideas with you. 'Til next time.....

Happy Scrapping,

Laurie
