Christmas Eve-Eve Layouts

I have been neglecting my blog since Christmas.  I have been crafting like crazy, but only posting my DT posts and Blog Hop posts.  I hope to make up for it this week!!

I completed our Christmas Eve Eve layouts from 2013.  We typically spend Christmas Eve with my family (my step-mom, two brothers and their wives and children).  Our tradition for the last several years has been to have soup and appetizers and a very casual laid back day.

My older brother is a driver for UPS so when Christmas Eve falls on a week day, we have to wait a loooong time for him to get off work - and more importantly for the kids to open presents!!  The past two years we got together the day before Christmas Eve. 
Hence the title Christmas Eve-Eve!  I combined half of Merry Christmas purchased from the Silhouette online store and my own words from a font on my computer to create my title.  I used the offset feature to create a shadow layer.
 I also cut some hanging ornaments out of gold metallic cardstock to add to my layout.
I followed this sketch from Let's Scrap.
The paper I used is from Frosted Designs December Kit (I purchased 2 so I had doubles of the papers).

The next pages: 
The left side is us opening presents, the right side is what happens every time the cousins get together!!!!  I have three boys, my brothers have three girls between the two of them. 
I just love this saying - it is from the Silhouette store and was intended for a vinyl decor.  It was not fun adhering it to the shadow I created (using the offset feature) but I really like how it turned out! 
Here you can see the joy!!!
I hope you enjoyed our Christmas Eve-Eve!!

Coming up tomorrow - Christmas Eve at the Zoo!
