Susan's Favorite Holiday Project!

Hi everyone!! It's Susan's turn to share her fabulous holiday project. I think it's neat how she scrapped it!! You are going to love it! Make sure you read below the page to learn more about it!

1. Why is this your favorite Christmas project? What is the story
behind this?

These photos are just random pics of all the things that are special to me…special ornaments, traditions, and time spend with my children and grandchildren.

2. What helped you create this page? What are some tips for creating this? What is your favorite part about the project?

In order to include so many photos, I decided to do a collage of all my favorite photos. I used a 2 inch square punch to punch the photo that I wanted to use and to have all the photos the same size. My favorite part of making this layout was gathering all the photos and looking through all my pics. . . it brings back so many wonderful Christmas memories when I sort through my photos.

3. What is your favorite holiday tradition?

I LOVE the smells of Christmas. Every year I comment to my family that I should make some of our favorite treats during the year and not just at Christmas. Maybe that’s what makes them so special – we only have them once a year! I usually make peanut brittle, caramel corn, divinity, M&M cookies, cheese straws, peanut butter cornflakes. . . ahhhhh…the list goes on!

4. Anything else you would like to share.

I’ve always heard that the true spirit of Christmas is giving, and for me it is. I love giving gifts and seeing the surprise and excitement on the children’s’ faces is one of the highlight of my Christmas. I’ll admit that it gets more difficult to find gifts for my children as they get older, but I still manage to surprise them occasionally! The grandkids are easy. . .they love EVERYTHING!

Thanks for sharing your project for our readers, Susan!!


  1. That layout is just fabulous Susan! I love the layered title and the collage feel to it! Thank you for sharing it with us!

  2. Hey Pam...big fan here and glad to have found your blog..question--the templates you share here..are they digital templates too? or just for printing and tracing over pictures?

  3. Heather... the templates that I put up are digital templates too. I include download links with them to download the template. Pammy's aren't digital, but I wish she would make them that way! LOL *Hint, hint Pammy!
