Always, There's a Favorite

There's always a favorite in a pile of gifts.  She really liked this blanket.  As I scrapbooked this page with these two-years old photos, I was actually glad to realize that I hadn't seen this blanket in a loooong time!  I don't really want to know where it is right now.  The last thing I want to see is it being dragged around the house, picking up and then spreading dust everywhere :)

I know typically, most Christmas projects get displayed on blogs the month of December, but I almost never scrapbook Christmas photos during that month.  For that matter, Christmas photos are tough to scrap any time of the year because they are usually indoor with poor lightening with lots of clutter :)  So for me to say that this is a favorite page so far this year is pretty huge! I just loved the process of making this page and how it came together for me in the end, yay!

Here are a couple of close-ups of this layout.  I absolutely love the Fancy Pants chipboard piece and the kraft die-cut.  This is also my last page as a regular member of the Work in Progress Kits.  I have enjoyed my year and half as Trish's design team member and I am very excited for the change of direction she has planned for the kit club!  She's been in the kitting business for five years and continues to have a great pulse on the industry and the business!  I know she will continue to deliver amazing kits for all to enjoy!

Well, the lovely weekend is well under way.  I already had the pleasure of going to cardio kickboxing this morning and left at least 600 calories on the studio floor! So, time for cake I think ;)
