The one with some early Christmas

I hope that all the Canadians had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! Being so close to the states it doesn't quite feel like Thanksgiving to me....not to mention the 80+ degree weather we had all weekend!

We didn't do much celebrating this weekend since we are full swing into the bathroom reno. Being our only bathroom in the house (yikes!) we wanted to make it really nice but also finish it really quickly. In renos things always seem to take longer than planned. So we are living without a shower for the week - going to my parents or Alain's each night to shower after working hard all day.

Obviously I have been too busy to scrap.... but I thought I would share a Christmas layout I made a couple weeks ago. This is very minimal for me... but I think the photos are kind of busy and I want them to stand out!
My Minds Eye Lost and Found 2 paper, Jenni Bowlin journal paper, Crate Paper Border sticker, BG bow tie and some Studio Calico letter stickers. Its a mish-mash of this and that. The 'Night before Christmas' poem is actually a rub on from LilyBee's Christmas line last year I believe!
The third picture along the bottom with the carolers is my favorite. We have put these out every year since I was little. I remember when we bought the first one for my mom one year and then she started to collect them. Now she has two families and some accessories (they are hard to find now!).

Well I should get back now and help with something for the bathroom!
Have a great week,

You already know I love this layout -- and I still have some of those LIlybee rubons from last year, too! Ha.

Good luck with the rest of the reno!

That is a really beautiful layout. It's so festive.

That background paper is perfect and the whole layout so cozy! Good luck with the remodel, hope you get your shower back soon!
