XOXO Challenge #18 - Adventurous Christmas

Ohmygoodness I've been out of town a whole week and am so behind on so many things! But it was so wonderful to spend time with my family, beautiful friends with perfect hair and to put together my sister's baby shower (photos for that coming soon...).

While I was gone, the newest challenge at XOXO girls went up and there are 21 new pages from the lovely Lipstick Chicks for you to scraplift and be inspired by. Here is mine:

I hadn't done anything with our Christmas photos but pulled them out to create this page using an SC sunday sketch from Lisa Truesdell. Love the way she frames the page with patterned paper. Most everything on this page came from leftovers from my March and April Lucky Girl kits.

We never get many good pics in the excitement of Christmas morning but I'll always remember last year because the kids woke us up early to say that Santa had come and they were just so happy. Best Christmas yet.

Link up your creations to the XOXO blog by Saturday, April 30th for a chance to win a great prize from Candy Shoppe Designs!
