2010 Pre-Christmas Break LO for Sketchy Thursday 6.9 Challenge

I'm so glad to have discovered Sketchy Thursday.  This is my 1st Sketch Challenge with them. . .  

I have been keeping in my photo box various newly re-developed family photos taken since I was a kid.  My current project is to scrap all our family photos since way back.  I have been looking at my photo box again and again with the intent of scrapping the Nov 2010 vacation photo.  They were 3 family photos taken on that occasion and I just couldn't get a chance to put them on an LO.  When I looked at Sketchy Thursday 6.9 Sketch Challenge, it was a coincidence that the sketch just matches the said photos I wanted to scrap and I had the needed papers to deal with for an LO.

I have to confess Christmas is my favorite event every year.  In fact, we decorate our house as early as October to feel the merry Christmas spirit.  Thus, it was with gladness that I scrap these photos . . .

TITLE: 2010 Pre-Christmas Break

SUPPLIES:  Papers: Nikki Sivils,  Scrap That!, Cut-outs: Nikki Sivils, Journaling Tag: Nikki Sivils, Border Strip: Nikki Sivils, Journaling Pen: Parker, Other: Scalloped Die Cut Square Paper.   

I guess all of the materials used except for (1) paper are from Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker.  Just love 'em!!  In fact, I have 2 or was it 3 other Christmas LOs with Nikki Sivils materials but of no photos except for memorabilla.

JOURNALING:  With Christmas brewing, we trooped to Tagaytay for a Pre-Christmas Break:  We stayed at the Development Academy of the Philippines; prayed at Tierra de Maria; & had dinner at the restaurant at Boutique.

Inspiration Sketch
I just can't wait for this year's Christmas Season!! =)
