Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop July 2022

The Scrapbooking Global Team is comprised of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Each month we participate in a scrapbooking Blog Hop Theme, like this one, to inspire all of us in our passion for crafting. Our Goal is to create, share, and inspire every crafter to keep our creative energy flowing.

Today's theme is brought to you by Delys Cram and is about creating a layout using our favorite color!! 

It's actually really hard picking a favorite color from all the beautiful colors Stampin' Up! offers. However, when asked the question about my favorite color, it is Red. Has been for most of my life. With all the lovely red holiday designer series paper in the July- Dec 2022 Mini catalog, I decided to create a Christmas layout. 

I used to be pretty good on keeping up with holiday photos and scrapbooking, but I have not done one in a very long time. I also don't seem to take as many photos, but I did in Christmas 2009. My son had come home after his first semester in college and I was a bit horrified at how long his hair was. I made copies of the lower left photos and included it in cards to family that year. This page will be a good start to the 2009 Holiday pages!
