Christmas, 1983 ~ Levi - 4 and Amanda - 23 months

Good Monday morning everyone ~ Happy 2010!!  It's back to "normal" for a lot of us so that means back to work...  URGGGG
This year for my New Years Resolution, instead of the normal  ~ "dieting",  I decided to do something that I know I can do.  1)  Scrap with things I already have!  (That's a hard one for me!!)  2)  Scrap my kids!  and 3)  Clean up after every project!!  Ha!Ha! (At least I'm going to try.. and 4)Learn Photo Shop Elements 7!  I have had this installed for almost a year now, and I'm totally overwhelmed when I open it up.  Mayby one of my computer expert kids can help me with this one...
I'm already on the right track with this layout..  The photos are of my little ones back in 1983.  Levi just turned 4, and Amanda is 23 months..  Levi has always looked out for his little sister (sissy) from the very beginning.  When Amanda was little, like a lot of little ones, she was sooo scared of Santa..  But as you can see, her big "bubba" was trying to make her feel a little less scared..  Gosh this seems like just yesterday, were did the time go? 
Okay enough reminisecing..  Here is a layout I did that will qualify for two (2) challenges:
Twisted Sketches # 30 ~ Sketch and Glitter
Scrap and Stamp ~ Hand Cutting and to use at least one (1) Stamp.
Here's what I used:
Doodlebug Beetle Black Crushed Velvet CS
SU Riding Hood Red CS ~ Hand cut with the Heidi Swap template and Glittered with Embossing Tinsel Red EP
The Paper Studio ~ Solid Glitter Gold CS
Martha Stewart ~ Garden Trellis Punch
Doodlebug Beetle Black Crushed Velvet CS ~ Circles cut using my coffee cup lid as pattern.
Cuttlebug ~ Vintage Corners
Doodlebug Ladybug Crushed Velvet CS
Prima Gold Vine ~ Swirlydoos Kit
Prima Holiday Poinsettia Gold Dust ~ Swirlydoos Kit
Red Beaded Lace
SU Brushed Gold CS ~ stamped with --
SU Punches Three ~ Stamp Set
Black EP
SU Scallop Square Punch
Thickers ~ Lullaby
Thanks so much for stopping by, I would love to hear from you...
Have a wonderful week!!
Stop back by any time!!
Hugs!!  :o)
