New Background with a Festive Feel!

Not sure what happened but my last background decided to shrink, and the place supplying the URL had some issues so thought it was the perfect opportunity to give the blog a bit of a Christmas makeover. I love the sides of this background but found it very difficult to find a header to match?? So kinda came up with the one above the best I could manage. Hmn, I wonder why headers arent made to match backgrounds? I guess alot of people make their own or use their own photography etc? Hmmn

Its still really busy here with end of year 'stuff'' still happening especially with the girls.
And both the girls and I have been in the garden getting it looking lovely again after its been neglected the last few months other than the good old mow and pulling a few weeds here and there, so our time is pretty much outside instead of inside scrapping at the moment!

Nevertheless, here are some DT comittments which are ready to show you

SCRAP THERAPY Swivel Tree
You can find the link HERE for the tutorial

As we had Meaghan home last month from London, I took some early 'Christmas' photos of the girls
and then put this together more of an album, but an OTP too!

Paige just before a performance of Handel's' Messiah'
