We all have Christmas traditions that we feel like we “must do” each year or it wouldn’t be Christmas. For as long as I can remember, my mother baked Christmas cookies and let my brother and I decorate them on Christmas Eve. When I was 15 years old, she handed the sugar cookie recipe down to me, which was my great grandmother’s recipe. I have been baking and decorating the cookies each Christmas for the past 18 years; and I will continue for many more to come.
The layout is based on Let’s Get Sketchy – December Week 4 Sketch:
I really enjoyed using this sketch as it lets the scrapper put their own twist on it. I used mostly SEI products – pattern paper and die cuts.
I am also submitting this layout to two challenges over at ACOT. First is the December Photography Challenge, where the hostess gives you several prompts to choose from. I went with the preparations of the Holidays (baking). The other challenge is the Journaling Challenge – where you had to scrap/journal about any Christmas Memory.
