As I look forward to the Christmas break coming, one of the things I am most excited for is having a little more time to scrap. Life will slow down…memories will build up…and hopefully I will have some new pages to show for it. I just love this time of year and everything it does in my spirit! As I took a stroll around the digi world for some inspiration, I wasn’t disappointed! Here are some layouts that especially caught my eye!

I just love everything about this layout! The “snow” falling, the light on dark text, and the awesome conversion of the photo.

This layout is wonderful. I love the bright and happy colors, the clean design, and I LOVE the dotted ornament hanger with the date put in there

This page is incredible! I adore the design but I am just blown away that she got her top 100 memories on ONE page!

This layout is a great example of using lots of elements while still giving the eye a place to rest. Since I am element challenged, I love this.

This layout is just so soft and pretty and feminine. And of course I love that there is a good amount of journaling 🙂

The simplicity of this layout is what makes it so stunning. It is definitely an example of less is MORE!

What can I say? I just love this layout. The picture just screams cozy Christmas. And the journaling is fabulous…it is actually a thank you note for Christmas gifts. What a WONDERFUL way to say thanks!

The artistry on this page is just incredible! The element layering, the subtle red border, the messy stitching…all SO pretty!

I love the huge punch of red in this layout but even more, I love how she took something so simple like a cup of hot cocoa and really got down to what it means to her. To her it means holidays, time with family, warm nights and cool mornings. What says “the holidays” to you?

I hope you have been inspired as I have been!
