Christmas Memory and an add-on

Christmas has always been a beautiful holiday for me (though I successfully pretended it wasn't really Christmas the years I was in Turkey, avoiding the sensation of extreme homesickness...easy to do in a country that doesn't celebrate it, in spite of being the birthplace of St. Nicholas) but my favorite Christmas memory would have to be when I was 7, and mom and dad managed to find a Cabbage Patch Kid for me. At that point they were very hard to come by, and I think they had to get it from Canada because the stores couldn't keep them stocked. They did find one, though, a beautiful redhead named Hope Marcella. (I thought I had a picture of her on this computer, but I can't find it.) She was followed by many more Cabbage Patch Kids, but none came anywhere close to being as special as Hope.

Yesterday I got a one-month subscription to Atomic Cupcake and have been having a blast trying their actions (um, no pun intended). So, this being the Christmas season and all, I thought it would be fun to try to make a small add-on for my 2006th Noel kit, for every day from now until Christmas Eve (I won't be home that day so it may just be now through Saturday). I won't keep the links up long so grab 'em quickly!!

I'm asking my husband for an Atomic Cupcake subscription for my birthday this month! I've been digital scrapbooking for a year this January, and I'm to the point where I want her wonderful actions (plus, of course, all the great kits). Chipboard and paper tears and inked edges, here I come!

Anyway, thanks for the link!
