The power of the iphone

Happy Monday everyone!

It Christmas break around here and the kids are loving their time off school.  Today we went over to the mall and the kids told Santa what they wanted for Christmas. Lara was so brave and was all smiles for the camera.  I've got all my shopping done and just need to do a couple more cards.  I cannot believe that 2011 is almost over already.

Over the weekend, I made a fun page with my hubby and our niece and nephew.  We were able to visit my sis and her family over Thanksgiving weekend and had so much fun.  Chris tried to sneak off and relax in the guest room at one point and the twins followed him in.  He was playing a game on his new iphone 4S.  The kids were ENTHRALLED with it.  They just hopped on the bed with him and cuddled up to watch him play.  It was sooo funny.  



I tongue-in-cheek used vintage-looking October Afternoon paper.   After all, in a couple years this phone will be obsolete right? ;)  I also distressed some of the paper and inked the edges.  The vintage buttons are brads from Graphic 45. To give the layout a little pizzazz, I got out my i-rock and added bling in the center of random flowers all over the background paper.

The layout was inspired from a darling sketch over at Sketches in Thyme.  

Hope everyone is having a fantastic Monday and not too crazed with the holidays around the corner :)
