Eat Drink and Be Merry

Hello! Today I would like to share with you my most recent Christmas layout. 

Backstory: My son is ten this past Christmas and is no longer interested in sitting on Santa's lap. So instead, I took my beloved dog, Sky!!!! My little dog is too distrustful so she got to stay home and cry about it. *LOL*

Sky is eight years old and it's her first Santa picture. She did fabulous!!!! P.S. So did Santa.

The bright photo with a whirlwind of colors definitely needed bright paper to match. Nothing will do except Bella Blvd.

I'm entering this into the Scrap Our Stash's Tic Tac Toe challenge. I used misting spray, 5+ patterned papers and twine.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!

The bright, glittery title came from HL. Actually, my sister bought it and
I just had to use it on the layout. I also purposely used references to "eating" here as
well. What dog doesn't like "cookies" lying around, right?!
I've been playing around with misting spray. Of course I added
a bit of hand-stitching!!

--AC White Cardstock
Glimmer Mist - Denim

Red/White Twine (on button)
Christmas title and button - from HL

Note: My pets really do not have access to "people" cookies. I just reference cookies for humor.

Vacation: A Trip to Remember

Hello all!!!

I did warn my readers that I would be posting a lot about my family's trip to Germany! This page is about our stop to Dresden, East Germany. I will be making another page just showing the beauty of the place, but also the residual feel of Communism that was left behind in East Germany.

So much of Germany was destroyed in WWII. Nearly every major city and building was demolished due to bombing. What's different about Europe in general is that the people want to preserve their history, not build something shiny and modern.

Dresden, Berlin, Hamburg, etc. is rebuilding what was destroyed. Because it's being rebuilt with copper, it already looks "old" since copper changes color so quickly, due to the weather. That's not really shown in these photos but I thought it was worth mentioning.

I was hugely inspired by the new sketch over at Stuck?!Sketches. So I thought I'd play along!

Thanks for stopping by today!!
