Hey there! Lawn Fawn is having its October Inspiration Week right now. That means lots of cards and layouts to share. And lots of giveaways!
This month, Lawn Fawn is featuring everything Winter and Christmas! Here are two projects I created.

I really love these photos from Christmas morning. We don't give our kids huge amounts of presents. We try to keep it to a few they really want. And one or two surprises. We also try to emphasize graciousness when receiving a present. And it's working out so nicely! We've never had a disappointed kid on Christmas Morning (Thank goodness! And knock on wood!). We also emphasize giving more than receiving. That's a work-in-progress... To make this layout, I cut the presents out of the Oh What Fun paper, and tied little bows with assorted Lawn Trimmings (more about the Trimmings in a bit).

The card is another possible Christmas card for us. This photo was actually our Christmas photo a few years ago. So I am going to need a new photo. Always an unhappy project for us all. Sigh. I used the 6"x6" pad for this. And some more Lawn Trimmings!
So. Yes. Lawn Trimmings. Love that stuff. It's made of hemp, it's biodegradable, and still scrapbook safe. It's so different from cotton twine. It's got more body, holds its shape really well, and it doesn't fray. How awesome is that? I've always had trouble getting cotton twine to uncurl, and to stick down straight because it's so floppy. Lawn Trimmings sticks down straight so easily! Super easy to tie bows with!
Now, go to Lawn Fawn's blog, leave a comment on each of the days of the Inspiration Week for many chances to win a bunch of stamps, and the Fa-la-la Collection!
