GYSO #7 Opening Presents on Christmas Day

Happy Friday!

I don't know about you but I am soo ready for the weekend!  This week seemed to go on and on.  Just way to busy after work.  I can't wait to spend time with my family and just "hang out".  We really don't have any plans.  I need to catch up on housework and just odds and ends.  Do you have any plans for the weekend?

GYSO #7 Challenge

I have to say I love the sketches at GYSO.  I think I like them so much because they are very similar to the way I scrap or they are easily adapted to my style.  Here is the sketch for this week.
When I saw it I knew I wanted to scrap Jack on Christmas morning.  I needed to journal his difficult day--Jack can get easily worked up--so he got up at 2:00 am Christmas morning and had to use the rest room.  He saw that Santa had come and he wanted to get up.  Well I told  him that he had to go back to bed and wait till at least 7:00 am.  Well Jack went back to his room and I know he just made himself sick.  So by 3:00 he was complaining  about his tummy and by 4:00 he made himself throw up.  When it was finally time for him to wake  up he was all happy, but his nerves were still all jumpy and he got sick again.  So we made him stay on the couch. My mom then came over and he got all excited and overwhelmed again so he stayed on the couch. After his nap in the afternoon he had finally calmed down and the rest of the day was pretty good.  God love Jack but he does get so excited.  The thrill of Christmas was just too much for him. 

Opening Presents
Christmas Day
 The one thing I love about Echo Park is that when you buy the paper packet you get all these great embellishments.  Really you don't need anything else.  They make it so easy for you.  Here is used the word stickers.
 Here I used these really cute guys to add a bit and I used the small letter stickers.
 I used the larger alphabet stickers for the title and added some paper trey ink buttons (it wouldn't be a siehl layout if I didn't add a button or two).
I also cut out the journaling spot.  I think it is so cute.  If I do say so I really love this layout.  It just has a fun feel to it.

Great layout. I had forgotten that one of my kids use to get sick whenever we were getting ready to go on vacation. Thankfully he has outgrown that but it use to be like clockwork!

I remember when you shared that story, Poor Jack. Looks like he felt better during the gift opening time :)
Planning on staying in and keeping warm this weekend. Have a long list of creating I am hoping to enjoy

Oh, poor kid! It is a lot of excitement for the little ones, but it looks like he recovered. No plans for this weekend, other than to work on projects and do some cleaning. More projects than cleaning though. LOL. Have a great weekend!
