A Griswald at Heart

So, we've come to find out that if we have the Christmas tree fully lit (that's approximately 1,800 tiny, twinkling lights), the microwave microwaving and the big screen TV blaring, we throw a breaker.  Reminds me of a Griswald Family Christmas, so I can't help but feel as though I'm falling into the footsteps of my much beloved Clark W. Griswald ♥  What a big Christmas dork, just like me!
"My twee...Louis (and you'll notice he doesn't call him UNCLE Louis at this point), what have you done to my twee?"  (it sounds like he's saying TWEE instead of tree, so I've since adapted this vernacular.  Can't help myself.)
This is it...the 2011 McDaniel Family Christmas Tree
Nothing at all serious about this tree!  Tons of snowflakes, snowmen and women and glittery, sugarplum-y ornaments 
The oldest ornament...a 1981 Hallmark, which was a tradition started by my mom. 
I'm adding these photos to my very own December Daily album :)  I will share more photos as I take them.

Here is the latest album that I've created for Dot & Whimsy
The only scheduled Design Team projects that I have for the remainder of the month is for I Heart-Ippity, so I'll have some time to work-up some additional mini albums before Christmas.  Right now, I'm sculpting a sweet and distressed FRIENDS album...stayed tuned for that.

UPCOMING SPONSORSHIP
I've been asked to be a sponsor for Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog and Cookin' Up Creations after the new year.  I'll be sending some of my ON THE FRINGE crepe paper trim, as well as RUFFLED CREPE trim from The Red Robin.  In the meantime, I will be a sponsor during Christmas Week at Scrapping Everyday Miracles, so I hope that you get a chance to stop by and visit them during the week!  I love the inspirational inspiration♥
I look forward to seeing what the design teams come up with...also give-a-ways along the way :)
I'll be back soon!
