Merry Christmas!!!!

Using some Hero Arts Christmas Ornament stamps, I created these cut images using red glitter embossing powder, silver embossing powder, gold embossing powder, and clear embossing powder (with Distress Ink on it).
I threw a few blings on it to give it a little jazz.

Everyone has that aunt that breaks the rules when giving gifts. I'm that aunt.

Santa brought T an ipad.  

Christmas morning breakfast:  Egg/cheese/ mushroom/spinach/ bread casserole and then a potato/sour cream side dish.

My gift to T- My attempt to move them away from Nickolodeon and to the CW.

Within 2 hours, T had already finished two Lego sets!

Misrepresentation.  This is not a full package of Salmon!

"Tis the Season..."

Thank you Paper Smooches for these cute animal images.  I colored the with Copics. (The Tree is a Lawn Fawn tree.)  The snowflakes are from my Martha Stewart Punch and then I put glitter on them!!!

Do you recall the last scene of The Christmas Story?  The family at the chinese restaurant for Christmas dinner?  Well, we had our own version of a Holiday Dinner at Hop Li in Chinatown (Los Angeles).

Here are the photos to memorialize the event...
