Lindy's Stamp Gang December challenge

Oh my, what a very inspirational moodboard for the December Lindy's challenge this month. Oh how it makes me wish my boys were that young again.

I was inspired by the colors and a recent picture that I had taken with my December favorite starbucks coffee. Bliss... It truly is bliss when I enjoy this Praline cup. I played around with a new app on my iphone and developped the picture in a funny way, here is a closer look:
And a closer look at my elements:
On my page I used embossing and stains, here are the links:

December More than Words entry

I's begining to look like Christmas !
Time for the December challenge at More than Words blog
Word Inspiration - TRADITIONS
Creative Challenge - HANDMADE
My tradition is simple, every year, I add a new ornament to my tree. It is either purchased during a trip, one of the hand painted yearly ornaments from Pier One Imports or handmade by my kids, myself or a friend. Over the years many ornaments have been added and buidling my tree every year just takes me back to the special moments that we've had as a family.
Fo the handmade part of my page, I added many layers of stucture to my paper for the background and embossed all my chipboards.
On this page, I modified my picture with an app on my i-phone, here is a closer look at the picture.
In my tree, many ornaments are hand made. Here is one that I love made by my friend Renee:
And one of my yearly hand painte ornaments  that I purchase at Pier one Imports:
On my page you will find the badges that my good friend Caroline from Cuts2Luv makes. I love adding her badges to my work:
