Christmas crop and banner



Hi my friends!

I hope you had a happy Sunday... I spent the day scrapbooking with friends (old and new) at Damaris's Christmas Crop. I got to meet Marlene in person and we got lots of goodies from Ms. DUI (AKA Damaris), including the Cosmo Cricket and Webster's Pages holiday paper kits. Beautiful! I cannot wait to incorporate these collections into my December Daily album and on my layouts...

I haven't worked on Days 5 and 6 yet, but I hope to post those pages tomorrow evening so come back and check it out. In the meantime, I'll show you the awesome banner that I created today. It's from Work in Progress kits. Trish is the BEST, so if you haven't checked out her site, you must. Lots of inspiration over there!



As you can see, I've been keeping pretty busy this holiday season. Richard was out of town working and I have some upcoming business (and leisure) travel as well. Plus, I have been totally into my December Daily project. That has helped keep me distracted, which is a good thing for me during the holidays. Since my Mom and Mami (my grandma) passed away in 2005 and in 2008, the holidays haven't been the same. It's bittersweet because I usually LOVE this time of year. But I miss my loved ones so very much!

Merry wishes and joyful dreams,
Vanessa

Thank you Vanessa for your nice comment. It was so great to finally meet you and Ady this weekend at Damaris. It's hard for me to get away and I'm so glad I finally made it. You are a fine group of happy ladies and it was fun. Love your gorgeous banner.
