Its funny how our tastes change, don't you think? When it came to Christmas I was always shades of red and gold. My sister is always silver, white and glass. Well her tree is anyway. But the more years I scrapbook the more Im changing and Im not religiously sticking to my original colours for decorations - except the tree! That stays the same colour scheme. Of course if my husband allowed me to have another tree, well you never know what I'll come up with! lol ;)
So, Dear Santa? Its bright and actually quite funky and I found I liked it. The wheels started spinning on what I could do with it, and then I remembered these boxes I had from last Christmas, and the idea came together.
Last year my sister organised a present from all my family for a series of date nights for Forbes and I and they were all printed out on paper, and popped in a small box. And then another one. And another - there were 5 in total, all separately wrapped. Her idea was that I would be able to use them later. Did I mention she was sniggering away as each time I thought we had reached the end only to find another layer!
My poinsettias Ive curled in on themselves and added some jewels from the yellow hues, die cutting a couple of different style leaves from my paper pad.
Lastly it needed some tags. And of course Santa ;)
So how are your decorating plans coming along? Its never too soon to start ;)
Incidentally, the other two boxes are yellow and they match Genevieve perfectly, just saying ;)
