a little of this and that...=)

hello my friends. =) Watching "Elf". are you ready for Christmas? I am, i think.. i'd like to buy my hubby a few more small things. we shall see if the planets align and i find what i'm looking for.

I was suppose to leave tonight for the Mayo Clinic in MN.. my mom is having surgery. it got postponed so here I am... I was prepared for the 12 hr car ride by bringing the last two Twilight books.. I read the last 2 on my way there and back so I'm thinking I can finish the series this trip.

I'd like to share some layouts I completed over the weekend. First, I found I new challenge site.. called Challenge Masters. I found something right away that I was drawn to. it was a BOM challenge to do a layout on what I was GRATEFUL for. here it is.

I used a paper I had from Creative Imaginations.. backed the tree in Best Creations bling paper and used some vintage accents.

I also completed two Design Team projects for Scrapbooking and Crafting Friends. This month you were to use stitching on your layout.

This one was faux stitching around the edges of the layout.. I used Figgy Pudding papers from BG and a sketch from Dec PageMaps.

and this one is actual hand stitching underneath the photo using a Bazzill template. I scraplifted this from the Nikki Sivils blog. Michelle, the designer, did a fab job with this paper line. it is too cute. i, of course, added a few of my own touches

and lastly, this is a layout using KI papers, i used my Shimmerz Mist on the kraft paper. love it. I used another sketch from Dec PageMaps.

So, what are you asking Santa for this year? I had my family Christmas party this last weekend. It was fun. I got a new Pandora charm, a Spice rack, and a very pretty wall decoration for my home. I'm not really fussy. I love any gift I get. of course, scrapbooking stuff is always a plus. =)

I'm not sure I'll be back posting before Christmas..
I hope to be back soon.
