Un message du Coeur!!

LOVE

IT STARTS WITH THREE SIMPLE WORDS

“This seat taken?” Or maybe yours were, ‘Half-caf, Ventiplease.” Or just maybe your story goes all the way back to something like, “U like Nick (Y or N)?”

Whatever those first words were, your love story started long before “I love you”. And we hope it goes on and on forever. With these 10 questions, you can create an album that tells your love story right from the start.

Were you struck by the thunderbolt or did love sneak on you gradually? tell the tale with all the romance, comedy and (hopefully not too much) drama. Come on, everyone loves a love story! And you’re going to love yours.

Family Tradition

My favourite family tradition reading The night before Christmas to my kids.

 

The Night before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, –not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap,

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

“Now, DASHER! now, DANCER! now, PRANCER and VIXEN!
On, COMET! on CUPID! on, DONDER and BLITZEN!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my hand, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His eyes — how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,

“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.”

Traditions familiale

Voici une Historie que nous aimons partages avec nos enfants chaque année en cette veille de Noël

La nuit avant Noël

le premier conte du Père Noël, d’après Clément Clarke Moore
(publié pour la première fois dans le journal Sentinel, de New York, le 23 décembre 1823.)


C’était la nuit de Noël, dans toute la maison,
Nul être ne bougeait, pas même une souris ;
Les chaussettes pendaient, près de la cheminée,
Espérant la venue du bon Saint Nicolas

Les enfants se nichaient au creux des lits douillets,
Des rêves de bonbons dansaient dans leurs esprits ;
Maman sous son fichu, et moi sous mon bonnet,
Préparions nos cerveaux au long sommeil d’hiver,

Quand de notre pelouse monta un tel fracas
Que je sautai du lit voir ce qui se passait,
Volant à la fenêtre, aussi prompt que l’éclair,
Repoussant les volets, relevant le châssis.

La lune qui jouait sur la neige récente
Donnait à chaque objet le lustre de midi,
Quand à mes yeux ravis, devinez qui parut,
Un tout petit traîneau, huit rennes minuscules.

Un petit vieux gaillard les menait prestement,
Je reconnus saint Nick dès le premier moment.
Plus rapides que l’aigle bondissaient ses coursiers,
Il sifflait et criait, interpellant chacun :

Allez, Fougueux ! Danseur ! allez, Fringant ! Rusé !
Comète ! Cupidon ! vite, Elégant ! Éclair !
Sautez en haut du porche ! Et vite en haut du mur !
Galopez, galopez ! Filez à toute allure !

Comme les feuilles mortes que chasse l’ouragan
Rencontrant un obstacle, remontent vers le ciel,
En haut de la maison bondissaient les coursiers,
Leur traîneau plein de jouets, entraînant Nicolas.

Alors, en un éclair, j’entendis sur le toit
Piaffer allègrement chaque petit sabot.
Quand je rentrai la tête pour me retourner
Je vis saint Nick bondir hors de la cheminée.

Revêtu de fourrure de la tête aux pieds,
Son habit tout couvert de cendres et de suie,
Et un ballot de jouets jeté sur son épaule,
C’était un camelot prêt à ouvrir son sac.

Ses yeux, comme ils brillaient ! Ses pommettes joyeuses
Ses joues au teint fleuri et son nez en cerise !
Sa drôle de petite bouche tendue comme un arc,
La barbe à son menton, aussi blanche que neige ;

Il tenait une pipe serrée entre ses lèvres
Un cercle de fumée auréolait son front ;
Il avait large tête et petit ventre rond,
Qui tremblait à son rire, comme un bol de gelée.

Joufflu, dodu, tel un joyeux lutin :
Je ne pus m’empêcher de rire en le voyant ;
En un petit clin d’œil et un signe de tête,
Il m’assura bientôt que je ne craignais rien.

Sans prononcer un mot, il se mit à la tâche,
Et remplit tous les bas, puis se tourna soudain,
Un doigt le long du nez, pour un petit salut,
Avant de remonter dedans la cheminée.

Il reprit son traîneau, siffla son attelage,
Et tous s’évaporèrent, tels duvets d’un chardon,
Mais je l’entendis bien crier en s’éloignant :

Joyeux Noël à tous et à tous une bonne nuit

Keeping your Scrapbooking Fun

Did your pages ever become a chore to you? Have you ever tried to make a page and couldn’t get it right no matter how much you worked on it and starting over and over again??? This can become frustrating. The best thing to do when that happens, is to put that pages aside, work on something else and come back to that one later or another day. By that time, new inspiration will arise in you or you’ll simply decide that this is not a page you really want. Remember the important thing is that your pictures are in a safe environment. Not every page has to be perfect, as long have fun and that you like the final outcome; that’s what scrapbooking is all about.

Looking back at some of my workshops, that hardest part of your page is done once you find the layout or the idea you want. Creative Memories as come up with Pages Planner, although not necessary, they can be of good help when those pages just don’t come together like you wanted them too. Remember if you move your picture around, angle them, line them across or up and down and nothing works, just take a brake. You will come back all refreshed and that page will put itself together like magic.

One of the best things is embellishments.  A ribbon here, a button or a sticker there or sometimes a photo mat makes all the difference! I find corner cutters always add a nice edge to your pages.

The first and best tips I can give you to save time and create beautiful pages is:

Organise!

Organising your picture whether it’s in Power Sort System or in digital scrapbooking software Memory Manager by events, always help me. By organizing, you can go from one kid’s birthday page to the other.  If your pictures are organized, this is easy to do. You’ll see your album done in no time. Plus, if you get an idea well you don’t risk forgetting it… and you’ll have more FUN!! This is why Scrapbooking is a fun hobby and not a chore!

Traditional or Digital Scrapbooking

When I got into scrapbooking, I started with the traditional, not having kids it was easy, I wanted to work on my album, just took everything out and just started. I started plenty of albums, one of me when I was little, one of my and my husband, my pets… I was a SCRAPBOOKER FANATIC. It when I became a Creative Memories Consultant.

A couple of months later, March 2005, I found out I was pregnant; I went crazy with baby albums and sticker and doing my pre-pregnancy pages of my ultrasound and baby shower album.

When my son was born, I got a little harder doing my album but I manage, I had to make sure that he didn’t grab a blade when I wasn’t looking, but I still manage to do his 1st year album. 4 years later in 2009 I gave birth to my second baby, a beautiful baby girl… but want a had full.. Scrapbooking came impossible to do, except at workshop.

This year I decided to try Creative Memories digital scrapbooking software, Storybook creator. It’s more convenient for my life style. I still do the tradition at workshop but at home, it all digital. You might ask what about creativity… surely it’s not the same layout; it won’t be the same…

No it’s true they are not the same, but they are just as beautiful, the possibilities are just as endless!

Traditional Scrapbooking

When doing tradition scrapbooking this are the 3 words you need to remember; Organize, Planning and Space.

Organize: before starting you should organize your photos, we have folders available to help you organize your memories; ee Creative Memorie Power Sort box.

Planning: choosing an Album (8×8 / 8×11 / 12×12) planning your layouts, how many pictures would you like on your page, paper, embellishment, etc.

Space: claiming a work space is the key, maybe a large table you can lay all your tools out on, or a room you can leave everything laying around in for a couple days.

The traditional Scrapbooking outcome is beautiful, creative, and original. When you add the stickers, the ribbons, buttons, the cropping tools, pen and everything else, you have all the elements for a spectacular scrapbooking party with friends. The only drawback is the cleaning up afterwards but that’s the price to pay for good times with friends / family

Digital Scrapbooking

Digital scrapbooking is fairly new. It’s also known as digi-scrapping or computer scrapbooking. It involves the use of digital photos, clip art, graphic textures, and various photo-objects as embellishment, but weather you use traditional or digital; the same goal remains; preserving your memories!

You can combine digital elements into traditional page layouts- or traditional into digital -printing and cutting out digital photos, paper, clip art and journal notes–and pasting them together in a tangible layout. I prefer to work simply with digital content. I like creating my layout entirely on the computer. You can then print the layout and frame it, share the layout by email or on Facebook with Friends, or simply have the album printed.

There are a lot of things I love about digital scrapbooking, you don’t need a lot of space, and you can close it up and pick up where you left off, as quickly as closing you laptop. So if baby wake up, not rushing to put everything away… no paper scraps, scissors, knives. PLUS NO CLEAN UP!

Before Creative Memories came out with its digital collection I had tried a couple of programme out there but didn’t find one that I like. Then I downloaded the free version of Creative Memories Storybook creator and I downloaded the free predesign pages, after a while as much fun as the free version was, it was not enough, so I bought the Storybook creator Plus 3.0. I have to tell you it’s a must, all the thing you can do… cutting, layout, embellishment… stay tune for layout I will be posting to see what the Storybook Creator can do.
