Family Friday

Hey y'all!!! Okay so its Family Friday yet again and the kids and I are lovin these fun times together.
This time I tried to step back a lot more which was fun to watch them but hard because there are soooo many creatively awesome ideas on one page. They finally settled on a theme, they would write on a strip each and put it next to a present!
A few years ago my Husbands ex-wife's mother ha that's a mouthful okay so once that has all settled in keep reading lol she told me about a tradition she started a long time ago and I loved it so much we decided (Okay I decided, lol) to incorporate that into Christmas. The kids get three gifts one from Santa (who normally gets all the credit for the coolest present arrrr), One from us and one for/from baby Jesus! Also we each do a secret Santa but for the most part its only 3 gifts. So...its pretty easy for them to pick one that they just LOVE!!!!!!

Okay soooo the kids did this whole thing by themselves. They each got to pick out a layer, they each got to put stickles on, and they all wrote their own words. This will be a 6*6 scrapbook page in their personal scrapbook. Next to it will be a picture of them holding up their favorite present. But we haven't done that yet lol. I hope you all like the kiddos masterpiece I think its genius!


Here's a list of What was used:
Cricut- Sweethearts Cartridge
Embellishments- A brad from the stash that Zo ended up picking out and she won the fight.
Extras- Tim Holtz distress stickles
Paper- It's all Stampin Up!
Adhesive-ATG and pop dots
From our house to yours go have fun with your kiddos and create something!!!
