Holidays 2006

I am going to try something a little different this year. I am going to scrap my Christmas photos as fast as I possibly can instead of waiting three years and then not remembering all of the details of the festivities. No lofty goal of a page a day, but maybe two or three a week. This is my first page - and the photo I used in my holiday cards this year! Speaking of cards - mine are all done and in the mail. Whew! The last few years have been a mad rush to the post office on December 24th. It is nice to know that this year they will all be received BEFORE Christmas.

Since I was at Paper Source today to pick up a few more supplies to finish cards, I decided to buy this great mug for myself.

And finally, three nights this week I found myself in DC for social engagements and I am now determined to get back there with my camera. The beauty of our nation's capital is never more obvious than at Christmastime. There were snow flurries as I drove past the Capitol Building and the tree in front stood shining with red, white and blue lights. With Christmas music playing in my CD player, I had to blink back a few tears. I hope you have the chance to experience DC at Christmas for yourself.

Argh, my cards still need to be filled out. I hope you meet your goal of scrapping all your Christmas layouts straight away :) I've still got Christmas pics from Jade's 1st Christmas that need to be scrapped LOL (she's now 16!!!!)

I love the photo you used on your cards :)

What a cute mug, I love it.

If you do get some pics, please post them. I would love to see what you described. I have never been to DC.

It feels good to have your cards out early, huh? I LOVED your cards this year. Awesome!!!

I have only been to D.C. once and it was around Christmas time. It was beautiful. I would love to go back some time.
