Christmas Kiss



Today it was my turn to update the Purple Pumpkin blog . Here is my page. I also entered it into the 'Bird is the Word' 'Breathe' challenge.

I took the photos last weekend after Sophie and Benji had danced in their Xmas show. It was Benji's very first time on the stage and he did so well and looked so cute. Sophie did a great job of her dances too - her confidence has really soared over the last 12 months. We are all very proud of her.  As I stood them under the Xmas tree to take their photos Sophie spontaneously turned to her little brother and kissed him on the cheek saying 'I am so glad that you are my baby brother. I love you'. It was such a sweet moment that I wanted to scrap about it right away before it was forgotten.
The papers I used are mainly from October Afternoon's 'Midway' collection. They matched the colour and mood of my photos really well. The gorgeous buttons are ofcourse from Purple Pumpkin!! Here is a wee close up:

The bakers twine and washi tape are also from Purple Pumpkin. They really do add the finishing touch to a page!
Have a great week wherever you are.
