What's in the Bickie Tin /More Than Words December Challenge

 Hello there!

Merry Christmas to your Home from my Home!

I managed to do some creating last week or maybe the week before, I dunno! Cant keep track of the days!! And this layout is for the Challenge over at WHATS IN THE BICKIE TIN on Facebook  which is to use Gold/Silver, add a bow and use a stamp..  And it is also for the challenge over at

MORE THAN WORDS which is..

To be inspired by childhood and to use gold.. 

I have used a new photo of my Grandie in front of her Christmas tree this year and her eyes are full of excitement of the season. Children bring out something wonderful in the festive season so that is the inspiration for the childhood part.. and you will see I have used lots of gold.

some closer views..

Gold, stamping and bows..

The light in a Childs eyes is all it takes to make Christmas a wondrous time of the year.

I love this photo and kept the design of the page  simple. The quote is from the internet and I changed it a bit to suit my thoughts.. 

Thanks for coming by, I really hope you have a lovely rest of this week as we go into Christmas Day.

Thanks for your support of my little blog this year, I really appreciate each one of your visits and comments..

God Bless you and yours this Christmas..

December Scrapmatts Creating.

 Hello there!

How is everything going as we quickly approach Christmas Day? It is going to be here before we know it, and I am not organized, in fact I feel I am the least organized ever!  I hope to pull it all together this week and at least write a bit of a time line for what I have to do! And not to stress, that is NOT the reason for the season!

I am just popping up my two layouts that I created for Scrapmatts Design Team work for this month.. I have closer views and details over on the SCRAPMATTS BLOG HERE!  

The first layout is using a lovely photo of my Grandie and her Daddy looking at some flowers in a pot.. a special moment..

Love blooms here.

and the second layout is using a really old photo of my kids.. I wanted to do a Christmas layout but found I didn't have much left in my Christmas chippies so I used other Scrapmatts chipboard and I think it turned out ok!

Merry Christmas!

I love this old photo.. time does go fast.. 

Well I appreciate you taking a moment to drop by, thank you to those who leave a comment they warm my heart.. Please take care, and if I dont get back before then..

Have a very merry Christmas!

Kraft+ December - Naturally Neon!

 Hello December! We have watched the days weeks months go by and now here we are in the last month of the year..What can we say about this year? Lots probably!

But with the new month comes the new Scrapbooking challenges to inspire you and get you creating! Hopefully!

The challenge over at KRAFT+ BLOG is a wonderfully colorful one. It seemed to have me thinking for a while but after looking through my photos I found some inspiration..


Naturally Neon.. I was inspired by the mood board and used the pink and yellow colors from the mat.. I love the colors on the Kraft base!

some closer views..

I used pink and yellow paints roughly spread across my layout as the base and cut lots of dies in neon colors..


Finishing the Kraft+ year on a bright and fun layout!

You can pop over to the KRAFT+ FACEBOOK COMMUNITY PAGE HERE!!!  for more inspiration and pop your creation there for us all to see!

We are experiencing some very hot weather here this week.. so take care if you are having this heat as well.. A good time to just take things quietly and perhaps get in and do some more scrapbooking!

Thanks for popping in and thanks for the lovely comments you leave me to read ! I appreciate you taking the time.. 

until next time..
