Scrapping Christmas Surprises

After finally recording some of my childhood Christmas memories in a blog post last month, I knew I wanted to create a layout using those words and photos. I found the perfect INSPIRATION when Jennifer Wilson posted the Jumpstart 2.1 Challenge as part of the January Simple Scrapper membership materials. These challenges pair a story starter and a sketch. The story starter was journaling about a day that was magical, and my Christmas Surprises stories came to mind because, of course, Christmas is a magical time. I used the sketch as a starting point for this 12x12 layout.


I'm excited that my word for this year led me to take this INSPIRATION and act on it right away! Have you created any layouts in 2015 yet?

Nice page, isn't it great to get those stories you've blogged about down on pretty paper. I need to do that too.

A superb page to start off the New Year. I love all that space for journaling. I'm hoping to make a page this afternoon.

That's such a great design for making sure a story gets told - you've made a speedy start to the scrapping year!
