    Hey everyone! Welcome to the last day of our Christmas in July Challenges. I hope you have enjoyed the festivities and have been able to get some of those neglected Christmas projects and pages completed!

    Christmas is a season of traditions. Things like caroling, baking, card-making, gift-exchanging, ornaments, trees, candy, music, movies, wrapping, elves, the list goes on and on! My challenge for you today is to think of a Christmas tradition or “rule” that you would like to break, create a layout about this tradition, and tell why you would like to break it. Easy, peasy, right?

    I can think of several Christmas “rules” I’d like to break but, for this challenge, I chose Christmas wrapping paper. I am not a fan of all the different patterned Christmas papers, most of them are just so busy. I wrap everything in craft paper and then add big fun bows to them. And, craft paper is cheap! All my money goes to ribbon!

    Here is my page:

    So, what Christmas “rule” or tradition would you like to break? I can't wait to see your pages!

    Reminder: Your page must contain at least 75% current Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery, your tracking thread, and to this thread.

    Everyone who completes all 10 of our challenges will get a $3 coupon. And one random "10 challenge finisher" will get a $10 coupon. Challenges close Sunday, July 28, 2019 at 11:59pm EDT.

    journaling reads: Our tree has always been green with red ornaments. But I'd so love to try some different colors, maybe like these: I took this photo on Dec 29, 2018, when Zoe and I went to see Santa.

    My "breaking tradition" is more of an internal change than any change of activities...

    Well I don't want to hear "happy holidays" or "xmas". Let's recover what it's all about -- God came to earth in the form of a baby (Jesus) in order that we might be saved from our sins. Emmanuel -- God with us. Not just a tradition but an eternal truth.

    Gingerbread houses and I do not get along. One year the house wound up on the floor and then into the trash. It would be so nice to break tradition and actually create a fun, candy house!!!

    This one is very difficult. I LOVE Christmas. I love everything about it. I love the traditions that we do. Hopefully I will be back with a page soon...
