I absolutely love Christmas...the air this time of the year is filled with excitement and the anticipation of New Years celebrations I can't wait! Its also balmy here in Queensland. We have hot and humid days ahead so we will be spending many mornings and afternoons swimming, eating raspberry icy poles and juicy mangoes. I just love that Christmas is in the Summer time its the perfect way to celebrate the end of a busy year with family and friends!

but... secretly I dream of a White Christmas!
I would love just once to spend Christmas time, making snowmen and snow angels, sledging then warming up by a fire drinking eggnog. I know sounds amazing doesnt it? lol Dan and I decided that we just might do that when Tige is 10 years old, why not go to the U.S and spend Christmas there. So eight long years are ahead of us, but I will be saving my ginger bread men, banking on the white Christmas Dream to come true!

After all my daydreaming yesterday about a white christmas I realised I hadn't shared my latest Christmas projects using the Page Drafts Christmas Cheer Sketch TemplatesSo in the spirit of all things festive here are my pages using a couple. They were also created for Sissy Sparrows using the latest kit release
