Christmas Time

A few weeks ago, my sister bought a little gingerbread house kit to complete with my niece.  I was onhand to help out (ie...take photos with my AWESOME new Canon Rebel T3).  It was really the first time either of us, let alone the Musher, had attempted a gingerbread anything, so it turned out pretty well considering that fact AND the fact that a good chunk of it was decorated by a 2 1/2 year old. 

Taking photos was also a fantastic excuse to use up some of the new Christmas paper I have accrued.  I'm drooling.  Seriously, drooling over three lines in particular this year:  Studio Calico's Wonderland, October Afternoon's Make It Merry and my favorite by far Crate Paper's Sleigh Ride.  I know many of you are probably shocked and appalled that my favorite was not by my beloved October Afternoon, but o...m...g....Sleigh Ride is to die for.  I have always loved Crate Paper, but this is my favorite line they have ever produced.  It's delectable.

Now that I've said that...I actually used a mix of Studio Calico, Crate Paper, Echo Park, and October Afternoon in this layout.

I LOVE when I actually take the time to play around with stamps!
