Monday Moments: Scrapbook Edition

I followed about 2/3 of the prompts for the My Memories Speed Scrap last night. Once I realized their directions wouldn't quite produce the page I had in my head, I tweaked it a little to suit my needs. So I guess I can't technically say this was my Speed Scrap, but it was definitely inspired by it! 

Kit for this layout is Flakes & Fun with an added alpha from this kit

I don't know if you can read all of that text, but the hilarious story of how we got our tree this year! We go to the same local tree farm every year where the owners harvest the best of their trees for sale at a little stand near their home, and leave the ones with minor (or major) imperfections for the bargain hunters and purists who want to cut their own. It's always a good time hunting around for "our" tree and never very crowded on the trails, so we have, over the years, expanded the tradition to letting the kids drive. 

For the little ones, this means some time on Daddy's lap, but my step-daughter is coming up quick on 5 feet tall and definitely too big to share a car seat with her dad, so we gave her the seat to herself and a little direction with my husband in the passenger seat to help guide the wheel or throw on the emergency brake if needed. She did this for a couple minutes last year before getting scared, but this year she opted for more time at the wheel...and hit a tree! 

It was a small, skinny tree and my husband has a big brush guard on his truck, so it didn't do any damage and we were able to laugh about it (after getting her out of the driver's seat, anyway!). It has a very skinny, crooked trunk and several bald spots, but I guarantee this will be the most memorable Christmas tree we ever have!
