New Scrapbook pages, Hurrah!

It's about time that I took a few hours to do some pages again. Right before Christmas I had printed some photos from Christmas 2009 to get started with the NC Christmas album. It's fun to get into my supplies once more and see what I can make. I started with two one page layouts.
First is a fun collage photo that I had printed at 5x7 by editing it in Picasa first and then sending in to Walgreens. I just am not satisfied with their prints and I kind of knew it when I made the order but there was a "deal" and I thought I would try once more. I think I will reorder the print from Costco and see how it turns out and replace if necessary. Loved the pics of Mr Creative and our grson A. This is a tradition of our family to wear Santa hats during the holiday season. Sometimes my older sons won't cooperate but they are over 21 now and I figure one day they will come back to the hats! LOL
Supplies: pp Am Crafts, cardstock DCWV, ribbon Am Crafts, Cricut Cart Christmas Cheer...as part of my new goal to USE those carts that I already have and NOT go ga-ga over what's the newest and trendiest.
This layout was of my grson A and the snowman he and his mom made after the snowfall in NC. He watched his Gr Uncle R outside as he shoveled the sidewalks and deck and then he and his Mommy went out to build a snowman the next day. It's fun to see him have a great time in the snow as my children did and my bro and sisters did so many years ago! I really love the Winter Woodland cart and wish I had a chance to use it more.
Supplies: pp DCWV Christmas 09 stack, cardstock DCWV Christmas Stack, DCWV Glitter stack, ribbon Target Christmas ribbon 08, jewels stash, CTMH, Am Craft Slick Writers blue

Cathie, I love your page about the Santa hat tradition! I'll bet your adult sons will start wearing them again, too. Thanks for taking my challenge from FCCB!

I love your pages. It is fun to do several hobbies. It makes me want to do some pages. I haven't scrapped in a year or more. Mostly making card or other things.
