I Did It!

Well my Scrapbooking room is set.......not only have I cleaned it up from head to toe but I have also removed any scrapbooking materials from the linen cupboard (overflow) and I have sorted out all of my scraps (Brayden is going to have a ball!)
I am in a bit of a clean up frame of mind (it always feels good once it is done:)) so today's tasks will be the study, linen cupboard and bathroom........then maybe I can do some creating once all done!

The new poems, yes poems (x2) not poem, have started along at Scrap That Poetry. It is very exciting because not only are there two poems for inspiration but you have until the 14th of January to enter!
Do you have great Christmas photos you need to scrap? Then hop on over to Scrap That Poetry as the poems are perfect inspiration. Also check out what great projects the design team have created for you.

The first poem is written by: Marinela Reka "A Shiny Little Star"
My inspiration was based on several words in this poem the first being Christmas. I used joy and love and then my own word to interpret the poem hope! These three words sum up Christmas for me. It is always nice for Christmas to arrive and for many happy memories to be made during the Christmas season. It is a busy time but there is nothing better than decorating the house and spending time with friends and family! I had started this wreath last Christmas by applying some paint to the edges and never got back to it (sad I know!) so decided to use it for this poem. It was nice that the wreath is made of stars "shiny little stars."
Kaiser Star Wreath, Bella Christmas Paper Range, Kaiser Alpha Stickers - Cream, Kaiser Mini Alpha Stickers - Cream, Burgundy Versa Mark, Dimensional Magic, Scrap FX Wordlet - Christmas, Bella Ribbonz, Making Memories Paint, misc. ribbons (recycled from gifts), Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Brick.

The second poem is written by: Walter de la Mare "Mistletoe - A Christmas Poem"
I thoroughly enjoyed doing this layout for this poem. I took my inspiration from the words "Someone came and kissed me there." This photo was taken of my hubby and I at our engagement party, many years ago. We were young and in love......still are (in love that is!).
I used the Kaiser wooden flourish as the mistletoe! This was my first experiment with Glimmer Mist on a layout and I would have to say that I love it.....just need more colours now:) I also put my journalling as hidden journalling under the photo.....I didn't want it to take away from the photo and that kiss - no kissing like that anymore....I'm lucky if there is anymore than a peck...hehehehe!
