Confessions of an addict...

It is no secret that I am addicted to patterned paper. I think, just maybe, that I have taken my addiction to a whole new level today. Case in point: the new Making Memories Fa La La collection. To be fair, I HAVE been waiting for this line since it's release in the USA. So when it went up for pre-order on the Scrapsidaisy site, I of course, ordered it all.

On the same day, as I was dropping some stuff into Tomorrows Memories, I saw it...Fa La la...peeking out of an as yet unpacked box, just begging for me to buy it. Well, I could hardly leave it there, could I? It WAS begging after all. So now I have two lots.

Did I mention that it is DIVINE? Check it out....

Now that I have my first lot in my hot little hands :) I set about finding some Christmas photos.
Now, my Christmas scrapping is one thing that I am a tad proud of. You see, I haven't scrapped a birthday LO for years...and years. But Christmas? Well, I have an album dedicated to Christmas, and as far as the whole "up-to-date" debate goes, my Christmas album is as good as it gets in my house. I am up to 2004, and with only 2 more photos left of that particular Christmas, I will be up to 2005...YAY!!!!! Not only that (LOL) but I have completed a couple of LOs of each year since 2005, so the chances of my Christmas actually getting "up-to-date" are pretty good....if, in fact, getting up-to-date is a good thing (but that is another issue all together :)) LOL
Anyhoo...above is the first of many :) LOs using Making Memories Fa La La. The die-cut circle is actually backed on a Hambly Transparency, and I've used the new MM trims and tiny alphas as well. Loving this range....if you need some, well, I know of two places you can get it ;)

Great LO I haven't seen this range yet I will have to go to the shop and have a look. The layout I did of my dad and the kids was on some yummy Prima papers called Urban Cosmos. Hope to see you at the shop sometime
