Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today!
I’m very happy to post today, on Christmas Eve, which for many people is an important prelude to one of the two most significant holidays of the year. This evening many of us will sit at a festive table of the Christmas Eve supper with their loved ones to share meal, joy and peace. This is for me the true meaning of Christmas: being together in a greateful celebration of God’s love and our families’ love. And this is what my today’s layout is about: being together in joy and peace 🙂
For my page I used papers of the Traditional Christmas collection. First I layered torn pieces of papers to create a patchwork-like colourful background for the photo I put in the centre and decorated with a cluster of poinsettias, leaves and snowflakes. I also added some hand-cut tags, an elf image and finished it all with liquid enamel drops to imitate snow falling:
Here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Other: dies: Magnolia, Craft&You Design; glitter die-cuts: BoBunny; accrylic snowflakes: Making Memories; enamel dots: Daily Art.
This page shows what I love about Christmas: family time, often with those of us whom we don’t see for most of the year. But we must also think of so many of us who will not be able to do that due to pandemic restrictions that in many countries forbid to gather together. Such times remind us what is most important in our lives: family, love, togetherness – and perhaps we need difficult times to keep this in mind?
I do hope you’d be able to celebrate Christmas with your loved ones and that the New Year will bring us all the change for better. I wish that for you and for myself! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!
