I started 2012 with the resolution to get all of my pictures scrapped this year. Easy you might think... but no. You see I haven't scrapped in forever and have tons of pics to scrap - 800+ pics from our Disney trip in 2007 and not to mention almost 1000 pics from my wedding in 2002. Plus, all the pics of my new nephew Jeremy this past year. I'll be scrapping forever!!!!

This layout was done with pictures from last Christmas. They are pictures of my house decorated for Christmas. Sad thing is that this isn't everything. I plan on doing another layout with just pics of my Christmas tree, one with just the pics of my nativity sets and one of my LSU shelf (all LSU Christmas items). I love decorating for Christmas. Last year we had the annual "family Saturday before Christmas party" 2010 at my house so I did over do it just a bit.

I love the title of Magical because that's what I feel about Christmas. Although this year wasn't magical at my house. I've been feeling so bad, I didn't even put up a tree or decorate anything. Maybe I should have. Maybe it would have made me feel just a little better.

Here's what I used: Poinsettia swirl Foil Teresa Frost Design paper by Sandylion, Red cardstock by DCWV, Cream cardstock by Paper Studio, 18kt Gold leafing Pen by Krylon, Fired Brick Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger, Golden Rod Stickles by Ranger, E1007 Homestead Alphabet by CTMH, Say it With Crystals by Prima, Poinsettias by Jolees, Poinsettias by Oriental Trading, Brad by CTMH, Crystals E Line by Prima, Permanent adhesive by Tombow and Dimensional glue dots (unknown).

Now to clean off my scrap space and start my next project. I'll pull my materials and start that while I watch my Saints!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful layout of last year's Christmas, Mel! I love it all - the layout is exceptional, the papers are beautiful, the creativity is just YOU! Great job!

While you are scrapping all those pics, just remember you are using up all that stash in our challenge!
