Inspiration Elevator Guest Post!

I was really excited to be asked back to to Join the Inspiration Elevator for this month as a guest blogger. I loved the inspiration for this month of scrapbooking Christmas Traditions. I made the choice to not go with Christmas paper and to stay in the warm tones of yummy cookies. The supplies are KaiserCraft and 3L adhesives.

You may recall that the purpose of the Inspiration Elevator challenge group is to take our scrapbooking to the next level, to stretch our creative process and to mature as artists by embracing challenges that make us think, work and grow. You can view all of the challenges at the Inspiration Elevator Blog.
We are thrilled to welcome guest artist Christy Riopel to Inspiration Elevator this month. You may recognize her work as she is a regular contributor/write for Canadian Scrapbooker magazine.  
December's challenge for us and for you comes from the uber prolific Laurel Seabrook. Here's the challenge she posed: 
My challenge for December. I love Christmas, everything about it. Decorating my house, making gifts, baking - I love it all. My challenge to you is what is Christmas to you? What is one thing that evokes special memories and truly brings out the Christmas spirit for you. It could be a decoration, photo, song, recipe. Perhaps it is a tradition that you did as a child and now your children do. Maybe it is in the 'special' dinnerware that comes out only at Christmas. Scrap it and tell us all about it. Now for those who don't celebrate Christmas, let's hear about a tradition that makes your celebration special.
Would you like to see what the rest of our designers, and our guest designer, created with this challenge? Of course you would, so here are the links to each one's blog:
