Joy to the World

   Yesterday was the children's Christmas program at church. I am so blessed to have Skyler and Neal here to attend church with me. It makes my heart happy!Neal was a lamb and Skyler was a shepherd. The program was really good and both boys did great!
  I am entering this layout in 3 challenges Sketch Inspirations sketch #350, Frosted Designs Day 5, 5 golden things, and SNC challenge to use the word "joy," Also, this is the first time I have ever gotten up the guts to write the journaling directly on the layout. I have always admired when others did that but just could not bring myself to do it. Well, I have crossed that bridge and I am not totally unhappy with it.
  I thought I would have more trouble with 5 gold or yellow things than I did. 1) the background paper has gold snowflakes 2) the patterned paper has a gold background 3) the title is gold 4) the background of the ornament embellie is gold (and I added gold stickles) 5) the ribbon around the pictures is gold 6&7) the brads at the top 2 are yellow.
  I hope for you the true wonder of the Christmas season. I hope you will take a moment from the hustle and bustle and reflect on the awe of the season.


  1. OMG Congrats on journaling directly on your layout in your own handwriting!!! I teach scrapbooking classes and totally recommend writing in your own handwriting as often as you can - your children will always know your handwriting!!!
