Two More Holiday Layouts

Howdy Folks.
How is everyone out their in Blogland?
I'm doing just fine.  I lost the bedtime war with my son this evening.  
I waved my white flag and surrendered.
He was way too smart and powerful for me tonight.
Looking back, I never had a chance.
Complete Defeat.
Oh well, tomorrow is a new day.

On to other news, I made a couple more Holiday layouts over the weekend.  The first layout I made is of a sweet little family we met shortly after we moved to the Florida Keys.  They are so awesome and I'm grateful to have them in our lives:

I used a sketch from a blog I found while browsing called Let's Scrap.  They have lots of inspiration and post new sketches all the time.  I used Sketch Challenge # 12-31-14:

It's the first double page sketch that I've ever worked with, but it was so much fun to change it to suit my style.

   The second layout is of my son and I hanging ornaments on our tree this Christmas.  The holidays were so fun now that he understands Santa Claus and was filled with holiday spirit:

Thank you for visiting me today.  Happy Scrapping Homies!
