When I was a girl my siblings and I would draw names with each other to exchange gifts on Christmas Eve. My mom would take us to Five Points Shopping Center (now gone) and let us look for gifts for each other at the King’s Store (also gone).
I LOVED King’s! It had the best variety of weird and wonderful things. My poor dad put up with many gag gifts bought from that store each Christmas. We thought we were hilarious, but I’m sure it was very annoying. Ha!
Well, even though the King’s store is long gone from my town, there happens to be one about an hour away from us in Heber City, Utah. They have THE BEST selection of toys and games, and now, my family makes the trek there each year so my kids can buy each other gifts from the same store I did as a child.
We make a day out of it, singing Christmas carols to the radio on the way, and then eat dinner at Spin Cafe afterwards (be sure to try their peanut butter milkshake!). It’s the best!
THE TRADITION CONTINUES
I used the Noel Mignon Mistletoe & Holly kit to create this page. This time, pulling out the traditional red and green from the kit and using the ADORABLE Echo Park “The Story of Christmas” chipboard pieces as accents.
I adore the Santa and Rudolph in this collection. They look exactly like the characters from my favorite “Ruldolph” movie! I added an enamel bow sticker to the neck of Ruldolph to dress him up a bit.
The scalloped border piece is hand cut from the Border sheet included in the kit. The strip with the snowmen and trees is also from the Border sheet.
I created another script word for my title. You can find the download at the bottom of this post!
