Pebbles Inc reveal...

Its "keep it simple" week on the Pebbles Inc blog!  The Pebbles DT have come up with some gorgeous projects from Christmas cards and ornaments to simple layouts that can be replicated in less than 30 minutes...now tell me that isn't appealing!??

I contributed this sketch to the blog, and all you need is a piece of cardstock, a couple of bits of scrap patterned papers, two standard sized photos and some simple embellishments.

Here's my take on the sketch.  Each year I try to take photos of the kids dressed up in their Christmas gear, just in case they decide to not cooperate in a Santa photo...well, you read a few posts back that we were successful in the Santa dept, but these pics were too cute not to scrap.  I have used Pebbles Inc patterned papers from the Lil' Buddy and Linnie Bell ranges, as well as stickers from the Lil' Buddy range.   Just goes to show that you don't need to use Christmas papers to create a Christmas layout.  I have also used Pebbles Inc candy dots, ribbon and chippies.  To create the circle around the page, simply trace around a dinner plate a couple of times...talk about a quick embellishment!
Here's a close up...look at all that love glitter on the Pebbles chippies!  Love a bit of sparkle on a Christmas layout.

Head on over to the Pebbles Inc blog and check out what the rest of the DT have been creating!

In Christmas news...last night we went along to Eme's daycare Christmas party and the kids had a fabulous time.  They held a little concert for us, and they sang Rudolph, Jingle Bells, and We Wish You A Merry Christmas...just like we thought...lol.  They were wearing little decorated antlers...so cute.  Everyone brought along plates of food...so much to eat!  Someone brought along what I thought was Mars Bar slice, but instead of mars bars, they had used toffee!!  Totally delicious.  Afterwards we went for a drive to see all the beautiful Christmas lights, and we hit the motherload out at Albion Park.  In one street, every house was decorated...even the street lights! So so beautiful.  The kids fell asleep in the car on the way home, so they got put straight into bed.

This morning, Seth was complaining that his wobbly tooth was sore, so I wiggled it a little and pulled it out!  Looks like the tooth fairy is coming again tonight for tooth no.2.

Today we'll be having an early Christmas celebration with Andrew's family...so looking forward to catching up with everyone, especially Andrew's cousins who are visiting from the US.  Seth and Eme love playing with Sabine and George.

I hope you're all having a fabulous lead up to Christmas.  The kids are starting to act quite feral...its a combination of the heat, tiredness and being overstimulated from all the Christmas parties.  Hopefully they'll run around like crazy today and wear themselves out! lol.
