December in a Nutshell

At least up until today...

We have a kitten who is claiming every box in the house (before it gets recycled)
 A baby who makes a cute gangster elf
 Bur he proves he can smile too
 A kitten who eats cheap, glittered decorations. There's glitter in the litter box!
 Monkey loves his Lego advent calendar
 My boys! How I adore them
 Monkey proving how smart he is. He spelt Wee Man's name all by his self
 Making green cookies on a pj day
 Lookin' cute
 Snow day!

 A fuzzy sock sort of day
 A cute sort of day
 Chopped off the hair. Bye bye pony tail
 Santa came to town early
 Monkey was jumping up and down

 Opening presents at Christmas #1
 All three older kids made a gingerbread house
 I think they did an awesome job
 Rudolph cupcakes! I adore Rudolph!

And as soon as we have some sun and I have time, I'll share some scrappy related projects.

December Bug Kit

I did not think I was going to like the Christmas Delight line from Little Yellow Bicycle too much. I thought it was pretty, but not me. Man, I was wrong! I love every bit of it. It was a delight to work with in the December kit from The Scrapping Bug. I wish I would have been able to give the kit more time to work with. I was only able to give about 2 hours to this kit. Here's what I came up with:

Tis The Season - This was based on a sketch from WeScrap. I think it turned out pretty cute.

December 25th - Honestly, it's December 24th. We do our present opening Christmas Eve instead of Christmas Day, which is for Santa presents and stockings. The snowflakes have fine, clear glitter on them. It's snowing here today so the pretty glitter on the pattern paper and that I put on the snowflakes are not picking up. You'll just have to trust me when I say it's pretty. This one was based on a sketch from the new PageMaps 2 book. Love that book!

Dear Santa - Monkey and Santa from last year. Monkey was so excited to meet Santa.

I still have lots left to this kit. I'll be playing with it again to see what else I can come up with.

Have you got your December Daily ready to go? If I have the time tomorrow, I'll post my first day.
