layout for scrapsketch



I was assigned sketch #159.  I really enjoyed this sketch and chose to do a digi.  The photos I've been wanting to scrap go great with the digi-kit I used and I ran out of one of the colors on my printer so I couldn't print them. :(

{story}  Every year when I decorate for Christmas, my favorite decor to take out is my Christmas village.  Thanks to the help of a then three year old (she's now 14), we came up with a very clever name... Cityville.  Isn't that magnificent?  Ha!  I've thought about changing it but I just can't bring myself to do it.  I mean, how original is Cityville?

The journaling reads:
One of the things I look forward to the most each Christmas is getting out my village. With the help of a (then) three year old, the village was named "Cityville." Quite original I think! Every time I set it up I can't help but imagine what it would be like to live in it and go for sleigh rides and spy on the little snowman and visit the haberdashery. I still need to figure out what that is!
