Merry Christmas!!

Wow! Was your holiday as crazy, hectic, and wonderful as ours was? I sure hope so. The kids had so much fun and got so many wonderful things. Jaydin was really into presents and lights this year. She loved Santa, even. I was a little surprised at how much she loved him.

Anyway, here's a paint can that I made for my mil and fil for Christmas. It was filled to the rim with lots of chocolate! What do you think? I used patterned paper behind the snowflake and a great snowflake brad for the center. The snowflake was cut using the new Cricut Design Studio Software and my Cricut. It's about 5.5 inches tall and cut from the Doodlecharms cart. I was able to not cut the other 3 snowflakes on that keystroke by enlarging the one to take up all of the space. I love that software!!!

Here's the top of the can ....

A couple of other pictures from the holidays .....

One last picture .... The spirit of Christmas captured in a child's eyes.

Merry Christmas. May God bless each of you with a great, big, beautiful tomorrow. :)
