What's in your Stocking?

HOWDY ALL!

This is my last layout for the challenges this month on the Yahoo Group Scrappin'-n-Chattin'. The challenge was to make a list on your layout. I knew when I seen it, I would make a layout of the girls looking at what Santa put in their stocking. So, I had to find a sketch and found this one over at Sketches in Thyme :
here is my layout:
a close-up of the left side:
a close-up of the right side:

I am also entering this over at ScrapFIT for their Simple Things Challenge. The simple thing of my Daughter, SIL and my PRECIOUS Granddaughters spending the night here on Christmas Eve means the WORLD to me. I LOVE seeing their faces when they see what Santa brought. They actually live less than 5 miles away, but my Daughter doesn't think it's Christmas if she isn't with her Momma! LOL! LOVE IT!

The papers are from The Paper Studio: Happy Hootin' Holidays Stack
The small abc's are from Creative Memories
The large abc's and chipboard shapes are Bo Bunny Double Dot Pink Punch

These are my grandson's playing with their new Train table that they received for Christmas. Their Momma sent me this picture on my phone a couple hours after they left here on Christmas day. It had to be put together so they didn't get to play with it until Daddy got all together. They just LOVE it.

Guest DT at The Paper Variety

HOWDY ALL!

I am SO HAPPY to announce that I am the Guest DT over at The Paper Variety for the current challenge! THANKS Abby and Suzanne for having me.

We would LOVE to see your fan fold embellishments!

For this challenge The Paper Variety has joined up with Bo Bunny. They have donated the "Enchanted" Collection for our winner.
This collection includes 10 BEAUTIFUL patterned paper (mostly glittered) along with 12 x 12 chipboard shapes, cut-outs, combo stickers and layered chipboard!

This layout I made using pictures of my youngest granddaughter who was so sleepy that she fell asleep sitting next to me at my scrap room table. I thought it was just too cute!:
and a close up of my fan fold embellishment:

I did a LOT of pen doodling and just LOVE how this layout turned out.
