Thanks Cathy!!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas; our was fantastic & my turkey dinner did turn out so I guess it is like riding a bike!
I haven't had a chance to stamp since Christmas Eve, today once we got going we went boxing day shopping - downtown Calgary is far less busy then downtown Toronto!!

I believe in always giving credit where credit is due & that is why this entry is title thank you Cathy (Lewis).
When I was still in Toronto I took a fantastic class at Scrapalicious Inc's Oakville location, Cathy Lewis was the instructor and I loved the finished product (as well as my classmates!) As soon as we finished I knew I would be "casing" the idea for my family.

The pattern paper used is from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie, and I used the matching buttons. i don't recall what line the black paper is but it's stunning with an embossed pattern on it. The other accessories are Prima, Rub Ons and Stamping Bella Baubles for a little bling.

I sent one to my parents & brothers as part of their gifts; this is the latest picture of the whole family and as my brothers families grow up you realize how much you need to cherish every moment you have with them.

I hope EVERYONE was able to enjoy time with their family this holiday season; or with your friends who really are you 2nd family

Thanks for stopping by & thanks again Cathy
