Recognize this picture?

It is the picture on my blog banner. Another one of the Christmas pictures we had taken last fall. This is the 2nd of the 2 pages that I made during the last couple days. I am loving the 1 picture pages. I have a ton of 5x7 pictures that I just didn't know what to do with...I know now. I love how this page turned out. The poinsettias are a TAC stamp and I colored them with prismacolor pencil and gamsol (never considered if this was scrapbook safe, opps, I guess I better check into that) and layered them. Then I added some more of those Prima poinsettias. I'm almost out of the red *yikes*. All of the paper is Basic Grey except for the red (from my SAMS club pack) and green (SU!) borders. I am so in love with Basic Grey paper. I have a lot because I used to be a hoarder. I'm learning to use what I buy instead of saving it for a "someday". The word "Christmas" is from a Christmas sentiment stamp set from See-D's and I cut the word Joy using my Cricut (it is definitely getting a work-out lately!). I printed "Annabelle & Beckett 2007" on the computer and cut it out with my CM cutting system. I think that is it.
This may (or may not) be my last post until Tuesday. We have a lot going on these next few days. Tom is still on vacation all of this next week so I need to take advantage of this and try and get some much needed house projects done!
I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful holiday weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
