Bird Is The Word- "Holiday", OUAS and Berry71Bleu-Dec challenge

Hello !!!  I hope all of you are having a Merry Christmas Season with all your loved ones in Peace and Love...A lot of blessings for all of you!!

This is my page for Bird is the Word- "Holiday" is the new word, you can use your word in any part of your project.  I also combined my DT work with two more challenges...Once Upon a Sketch-December  and White Christmas- Berry71Bleu.
I used "It's Christmas Collection" by Maja Design, you should take a look at all these Gorgeous Maja Collections...HERE

I worked with this family photo from December-2007.

Closer details....

I draped my paper in the same way I do in my dresses but in paper is a little more difficult but I really enjoy the process!!!
For OUAS- the journaling theme is December.

My journaling is behind my page and says...

"December is a special month for all of us.  Every December since 1994,  when my first child, Alexander was born, I've been taking family pictures every December ever-since. I love to sit down to see all these photos we've taken through all these years.  Seeing how big my kids have gotten, now they've matured.  I've been blessed with such Adorable kids and a Beautiful family".

Here are my inspirations for this page...Nadia's lovely sketch- OUAS and these lovely photos by Berry71Bleu for my white page.
