Christmas layouts finished during the Holidays!

As promised to myself, I will create Christmas layouts during the Holidays. That way I will be able to finish our Family Christmas album right after the Holidays! Am I too idealistic? Yup, you're right - we had so many Holiday photos and we were also busy then, what was I thinking?!

Anyway, by January of 2007, I was able to finish 5 more layouts amidst being soo busy! Whew! I still have one unfinished layout ... and some Christmas pics developed but not scrapped and lots of Christmas photos in the hard drive of our PC!

Here are the layouts:

Hidden journaling (lift the block, LOVE to reveal): If there's one Christmas tradition I really love and always eager to do ... that would be wrapping presents! I always remember how your Lola Letty would wrap gifts even during the wee hours of the night. She never gets tired of doing those - giving presents and wrapping them by herself. That Christmas tradition was passed on to me too that's why wrapping presents means a lot to me. I see to it that no matter how big or small my gifts are - they were warpped and given with love! This tradition will always remind us that Christmas is truly the season of giving! - Mommy
Maligayang Pasko
This is the first layout I made with a Tagalog title and journaling.

Materials: Ki Memories Joyful (Twinkle, Evergreens textured cardstock, Multi Stripe, Scrolls and Skinny Stripe) Bazill cardstock (for the title), Colorbox ink, Zig Writer pen, chipboard, ribbon and Sizzix Ransom dies, one 4R and 2 wallet size pictures
Hidden Journaling (pull ribbon to reveal): Kahit hindi magarbo ang pagdiriwang natin ng Pasko, kahit wala tayong Christmas tree sa bahay at kahit halos 3 oras na tayong nasa traffic papuntang Maynila noong araw ng Pasko ... maligayang maligaya pa rin ang Pasko natin! Sapat na sa amin na makita ang ngiti sa iyong mga labi habang nagbubukas ka ng mga regalo at masaya kang namamangha habang iyong pinagmamasdan ang mga Christmas lights! Ikaw, Ethan ang pinakamagandang regalo namin ngayong Pasko! Salamat at palagi mo kaming pinasasaya! Mahal ka namin!
