After Christmas Scrapping...

Well the house is clean the tree is down and I got some scrapping done. I got the most amazing box full of the Candy Cane Christmas Collection from Reminisce the other day from winning a challenge on there blog. So I have been playing with that using some Christmas photos. Not quite done with those yet, but I did finish this one for the Reminisce blog challenge for this past week. The challenge was to play with fonts. I used a mixture of rub-ons and stickers from Reminisce. I love rub-ons and these went on like butter. I just couldn't help getting the Girly girl collection by Reminisce from my LSS a few weeks back and it was so inspiring to play with. I just love how the paper has a shimmer to it.

I call this one ABC's and 123's of Cute. Other items on this layout are Tim Holtz Grunge Board, Ranger Stickles and Ribbon from The Embellishment Studio. I plan on using the paper with the hearts for some Valentine cards. I will post some more tomorrow.

Thanks for looking.

The wish lists...

are now up on the mantle and I had a great idea for a layout and decided to use Reminisce paper so I can take part in the Reminisce blog challenge. I have just about every collection they have made. I don't know what it is but every time I'm at the LSS and grab a piece of paper it is always Reminisce. Remember how much fun I had with their Halloween line this year. Loads of fun and the Christmas collections sure didn't disappoint either. So the challenge was to do a layout without a photo. Not that easy. Here is what I came up with. Oh and Joshua my 6 year old had to help me decorate the tree. He thinks it's perfect.hehe

Here is a close up of the kids top 5 items on their lists.

I also have a small little toot. I got a great comment on the I am a Scrapaholic blog from Tim Holtz about my Altered Frame and Crackle paint tips and techniques. Lynn the owner of I am a Scrapaholic sent him and e-mail just to make sure it was him and it was. I just thought that was kind of cool that he seen the article and liked it.

Thanks for looking and wish me luck

12 more days...

Here is my latest layout and I am sure it will cheer anyone up. The photos are from Molly Peckham. Isn't her little girl the cutest.

A mixture of December kits from I am a scrapaholic and The embellishment studio. I used a December sketch from Page Maps. Lots of great sketches. Sorry the scan isn't the greatest. The weather here is dark and wet. Once there is a break in the weather I will be getting a better photo of this outside.

Thanks so much for looking and have a great day.
