Good day to you all! What a busy month this has been for me! and I am sure for you too! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed the blessings of family and food..!!
I have to admit I think this has been the busiest month for me this year.. The start of December saw my DD have her year 7 dinner and she looked so beautiful..
Then it was the school concert and then I had an appointment in Brissy, then  her birthday party at the local bowling alley.. then it was Christmas day and I had my family my parents and my inlaws here.. and then we had my hubbys side family Christmas last saturday.... phew.. and all the while doing life and grabbing a few minutes here and there for scrapping, which if I did not have I might add I would have gone bonkers!!!hehe!

So..... I have a few layouts to share..

The SCRAP THE BOYS DECEMBER is to use the quote "all I want for Christmas" as your inspiration.. I found this cute photo of my nephew from when he was only 1 year old.. and I thought yeah I would love to have this little boy back... he is now 6 and going to year 1 next year.. so that is my inspiration for this layout.. I did a decoupage bear and wrote my title on the sign he is holding..

All I want for Christmas is you...

Kaiser papers used on this layout..

I have created layouts for the 2 sketches over at STUCK?!..
The December 1st sketch looks like..
and my layout...

 and the second sketch looks like..and my layout...

Enjoy life.

I have used an older Kaiser paper range and fussy cut the flowers..

And the last layout which I enjoyed creating is for KRAFT IT UP and I used the pink/kraft/white/gold combination...


Thanks so much for coming by..  Thank you too for your wonderful comments and I do wish you all a very Happy New Year!!

Believe - Orange Paperie & Co and.....

Good Day to you!! Can you believe it is one week from today and it is Christmas! The day many of us celebrate because we remember Christs birth.. We celebrate because that event gives meaning and  hope to each and every other day of the year.. We celebrate because we are thankful for many things like our family's and that day we spend time with them..  And so for me I have begun preparations and as such have been slightly busier than usual.. So I have not been able to sit and scrap as much as I would like, however I have had a layout on my desk so  when I got a few minutes I would get in and do a little bit here and there and I have managed to finish it..

The December challenge over at Orange Paperie & Co is a color challenge to use Gold*Silver*White..  I used an older photo of my DD from a few Christmas's ago for this layout..

A couple of closies..
lots of gold silver and glittery bits!


I enjoyed creating this one!!

I really do want to say a big thank you  to everyone of my friends who come by and leave comments, your support and encouragement are warmly appreciated so much.. What a year for us all.. Thank you too for all the inspiration I have received from you ... I know I have grown in my scrapping so much by visiting your blogs as you share your creativity too... I really do love my online friends.. so thank you...

and in case I don't get to post again before next week... take care... enjoy the season...

and have a ......

God bless........xx

Feeling Sketchy #75 and White with One

Hello there, how are all your Christmas preparations going? I hope things are feeling festive and not too stressed.. I HAD to disappear into my scrap room and do some scrapping.. my mind needed time out!!  So I did a couple of challenges..

The sketch over at FEELING SKETCHY #75 had a Christmassy feel, so I created a card with that in mind..

The sketch..and my card..

And I created a layout for the White with One which is another gorgeous color..

and my layout..
some closies.. I used to sew.. and I found this piece of lace, obviously I was going to use it on something,  however I thought it would go well on my layout..

Scrap the Girls December Challenge

Ho Ho Ho!! Welcome to the merry month of December!! I hope things are looking and feeling a bit festive at your place! We put up our little tree yesterday as it was raining so that was a fun thing to do on a rainy day.. Later we are off to Carols in the park.. all part of trying to get into the swing of this festive season!! (like I said... trying to get in the mood..hehe!!)

Well all the challenges are getting put up.. and the challenge over at SCRAP THE GIRLS is to use multi photos, at least 3 or more.. SO hopefully that will be easy enough.. although time is going to be a factor in how much I get scrapped this month.. The DT have created some wonderful layouts and here is mine.. I went with a Christmas theme.. yep I have still got lots of photos unscrapped from previous years!

Merry and Bright...

So thanks for taking a moment to come by, I know this is possibly the busiest month of the year for us all.. and I appreciate any comments you leave me too... xx
