Cocoa Daisy December

I have taken a bit of a blogging hiatus around the holidays. I think I really needed the break, not just from blogging and scrapping, but from everything. Spending the past 2 weeks with my parents has been really fun. We had a great holiday. And I feel really re-charged and excited for the new house and Christmas. I took so many photos, I can't wait to scrap!

Here are my Cocoa Daisy December pages, such an awesome kit! Loved all the envelopes! The letters layout has two letters, one short one from me about what I want for Christmas and one from J that I helped him with. The second one is a very strange attempt to dislodge a song stuck in my head, Duncan Sheik's On a High (it didn't work). But the more I heard myself singing it, the more I thought how much it really represented how I felt. I, like everyone, have reasons to be down, but I'm just feel happy. The third layout has a letter about the miracle of snow to J. The fourth layout I love because I have to watch Dora, a lot. So it's kind of tongue and cheek about "swiper." The fifth layout has a letter to my dh about our first 10 years together, he brought me the ribbon on a box of chocolates from Paris. And the last layout features my dh and son, only 1 week old, just home from the hospital 5 days before Christmas.





Ok, I've got to go upload to the Cocoa Daisy gallery. I can't wait to see what the other girls did! Happy Monday! Until tomorrow.
