The theme was something that was driving me. My oldest, Randy, is now 14 and just about one month from his 8th grade graduation, which is actually a fairly big deal. Around here we do NOT have graduations for every grade, this will be his first, no preschool, no kindergarten, no 6th grade. Just 8th grade and of course, high school. Anyways, for the past several months, both Clinton and I have struggled with the reality of our boy growing up. And he is growing up into a wonderful person. Even if I miss my little boy, I truly love this kid right how he is right now, and I can imagine the wonderful man he will become. Thus, my journaling.
Here is a link to the sketch: http://www.pagemaps.com/blog.php
This was a little out of the ordinary for me; I used a black & white picture, the colors are pretty muted (but I do love them and they ARE from MME!), I sewed on the page, which I'm just learning how to do and I know I didn't do a very good job at that!
I also used both CDS and SCAL, which makes me very happy that I am using them!
I would really love your comments on this one. Thanks for looking!

All that to explain why I did Christmas layouts! Another funny thing about me, unlike most people, I do not take a lot of pictures of gifts at Christmas and even stranger, until last year, I had never really scrapped my Christmas pictures.
So, here is Christmas 2008 for the family book:
For Randy's book (how do you like his outfit?):

Even better, I used some great stuff from my stash, the patterned paper is all from K and Co. which I have had for a long time! I just HAD to have that box of paper, at least I've used some now! LOL... I've also had the flowers for quite awhile. I love to use flowers, but, I can only get away with so much, so I have a ton of flowers because I love buying them and don't get to use them... The punch is from Martha Stewart, flourishes from Cricut Accent Essentials, title Cricut Pooh Font, marker feature. And the cute little pearls were a birthday gift from a good friend! I would have never bought pearls, but I love them on this layout!

I've been a bit under the weather, but I did work on a 2 page layout the other day. It's not quite done, but hopefully I will finish it today and get it posted!
