Pixie Dust Paperie ~ Merry Christmas Little Bunny Layout

Another project to share using Pixie Dust Paperie's November Kit "Snow Shoe"
This Kit not only consists some of my favorite soft, dreamy colors paper from Prima, it also has some newest Christmas theme products from Echo Park.
Not just paper, there are TWO 12" x 12" sticker sheets full of lovely christmas goodies.

I have a 8"x 8" album just for Lione, where I used the old photos from the album many years ago, sort of a makeover for those old photos.

This photo was taken during Christmas, at one of the hotel lobby in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Look at that cute bunny backpack? Awww..... my missed my baby boy......

Lione was born in the year of Rabbit (chinese horoscope), he is my little bunny, even he is a young man now, he is still my little bunny...... always....... forever......

Hop over to the Pixie Blog now, a place filled with lots of great projects and inspiration on a daily basis.

Although we are locals in Las Vegas, but my husband and I still go to the strips at least twice weekly, we just love the energy there, everyone that goes to Vegas for vacation are just the happiest soul, aren't they?
We went to another Cirque De Soleil Show last night, this time is Ka at the MGM, I love the Cirque show but this might be one of the weakest. Dessert at Wolfgang Park Bar & Grill round up the evening with great joy.

YOU mean the world to me!

Found a new scrapbooking challenge blog

a challenge that needs to use kraft paper
I love it as i think kraft is very versatile, and look good with any color
The November challenge also required to use decorative edges
I love it too, as you know, I have so many edge punches
so here is my take

I used this My Mind's Eye kraft collection from the blog candy I won HERE! Thanks Jessica!

Everything in this collection are all in kraft
even the big bloom...

I just add some of my own kraft paper, with my new Martha Stewart edge punch...

The distressed frame is also from the same kraft collection of MME

The little lace stamp was bought more than 10 years ago, and this is the first time I use it

This photo was taken way back in 1988, my son Lione and I were at Toronto, Canada

Link to Kraft it up - you still have some time to play along
