Today we're almost all better, I took down the tree and I feel like I can finally breathe. I love Christmas decor when its up but I love taking it down. :)
On to our next sketch...
Here is what the DT created with the sketch:

I am sooo excited! I made the DT for a wonderful store called Your Scrapbook Stash. They have a super huge assortment from all of the brands we love in their store. They also have a "vintage shoppe" which I think is very cool. Go check them out!

Seriously! I entered one of American Crafts' weekly challenges on their blog a few weeks ago and won. Check out what they sent me.
This is the whole Letterbox collection! Including 18 sheets of paper, 5 pkgs of Thickers, 3 stamps sets...I could go on and on.
If you haven't entered one of their challenges lately, DO IT!

Are you about ready for the big day? I'm getting there, slowly but surely.
Today will be the day I bake my bazillion variety of Christmas cookies to share with friends and neighbors. I'm sure I'll be looking like a plump gingerbread woman by the end of the day. *sigh*
Here is this week's sketch:
Here's what the oh-so-wonderful DT did with the sketch:
Merry & Bright
Pretty fab examples, hugh? If you feel inspired to try the sketch, email me your LOs to firstname.lastname@example.org and you'll be entered into the chance to win this month's prize.
Have a merry day!

to LOVE your own creations? Because I totally do.
I made this LO for this month's challenge on the My Mind's Eye blog. The challenge is to follow a given sketch and make your own hand made flowers, plus instructions. I have lots of MME products and I love to make flowers so I thought, why not?
For the flowers I made a poinsettia, rose, poppy and stacked flower.
I also incorporated this LO for another challenge
I also made this sleigh that I think turned out adorable. I've had this wooden sleigh in the garage for a few years just waiting to be dressed up. When my kit from Jen's House Of Scrap arrived yesterday I knew today was the day. I covered it with papers from Collage Press's "Joyride". I embellished it with chipboard from BG's "Eskimo Kisses" and wonderful findings from the thrift store.
I made the rose using instructions from the amazing Tim Holtz and everything got a nice coat of Shimmerz paints. I truly love that stuff!!
Thanks for letting me share!

Brrrrr.....it's beginning to feel alot like Christmas. The wind is blowing and it sends such a chill up your spine. There's also a snow warning for us so the kids may not have school tomorrow. They'll love that!
Are you ready for this week's sketch? Great, here it is:
Little late with the turkey, I know, but you can put anything there in place of it. Check out the DT's creations.
Naughty Or Nice
Turkey Gone Wild
Beautiful jobs, right? If you try the sketch email it to me and you'll have a chance at winning that kit (in the upper right).

The December kits at Serendipity Scrapbooks are now here, fabulous and for sale! Every month they offer 3 kits to choose from. Here are December's choices...
I Deserve It All kit
Just Enough Please kit
Fabulous right? This month I got to play with the Just Enough kit. It was my first time using Webster's Pages. Man, they're beautiful papers! I was worried I didn't have any appropriate pictures to match but I think I managed ok.
Just Call Her Superwoman
My mother-in-law raised 6 boys (often terribly behaved boys) so ya, she's superwoman in my book. She's just not wearing the cape. My cute hubby is the one on the right.
One BIG Happy Family
Again, this is my husband's family. Big, hugh? The best times to get together for these types of pictures is for either a wedding or a funeral. Unfortunately this was taken after Grandpa Anderson's burial.
This is our Border Collie Sunny. Isn't she cute? I just love this dog. I swear she's half human -she's just so good and so smart.
This is my mother-in-law and one of my sisters-in-law. (A few of my favorite women.) Aren't you loving this paper? Notice the clock hand? - It's included!
The Perfect Pear
Also included in the kit were these BG Nook&Pantry papers. They are just sooo cute in person!
Thanks for lookin!
