Merry Christmas!

Well, this will be my last post before the holidays, so I hope everyone has a fabulous Christmas and enjoys time with all their friends and family :) I leave tomorrow night to head back to Ontario to see my sister and Dad (and Mom, in the hospital). I'm not excited about how things are turning out this Christmas, but I will make the best of it. Happy to get to see my Dad, and planning to hang out with a couple old friends from high school, which should be fun! Tonight is Christmas with Brandon's family, so we get turkey (yummy!) and presents!! Very excited :)

I've been trying to take lots of photos of the sights of the season around here, and I think some of them have turned out quite well! I'm excited to do a fun layout after with all my fave pics.

Speaking of layouts, I'll leave you with this one that I finished last night of my Grandpa and Uncle Frank (who is basically my 3rd Grandpa). This pic is from 4 years ago at my sisters wedding, and it's such a good pic of them! I love to remember my Grandpa (who passed away this year) with that big smile on his face, and my Uncle Frank looks cute too. I used the kit from Coordinates Collections (for November). If you've never been there to check out their kits I highly recommend it! The kits aren't as big and full as some other places, but I like it that way. You get enough stuff to do a couple 2 page spreads or 4-5 single page layouts. It's perfect cause you don't get bored of the style and have an album full of the same type paper. Also (and this is the best part), you get to choose between two kits each month. There has yet to be a month since I discovered this place where I didn't love at least one of the kits! And it's a good price, so go check it out :)

Merry Christmas to everyone! See you after the holiday

<3 Gillian

Loved your photos in this post! The scrapbook page of your grandpa is lovely. Like you, I can't imagine having a whole book filled with the same scrapbooking collection. I'm not that coordinated in anything that I do, why would I do it for scrapbooking! LOL!
