Tidings of Joy

HOWDY ALL!

I have been SCRAPPIN' Away!! This makes post #6 for today, so I am catching up! I hope you take time to go back and look at the layouts I have made in the last couple days.

This time I want to share the layout I made using this week's sketch over at Sketch Inspiration:
 Here is my take, you will notice that I kinda flipped it up a bit:
I am also linking up over at Quick Quotes for their challenge to use Vellum on my project.
This is the left side of a two page spread, the right side is posted here, but here is what they look like together:

I used Nikki Sivils Gingerbread Land Collection.

I hope you take time to play along with me on these challenges.

The 3rd Day of Christmas

HOWDY ALL!

On the 3rd Day of Christmas Frosted Designs asked me to use 3 mists/paints/ink on my project.
I used Acrylic paints and this sketch, which I flipped, from Sketches In Thyme, but I am to late to link up there.


Here is my take:



Here is a close-up of my 3 different paints I used the light pink with a stiff bristle brush, I used a quilt template with white and a sponge on the flourishes.  I used the end of a paint brush to get the dots.

I hope you take time to play along with me in these challenges.

The 2nd Day of Christmas

HOWDY ALL!

On the 2nd Day of Christmas Frosted Designs asked me to use 2 stamps on my project. I made this layout (the small stamp at the bottom says believe):

I am also linking up over at Imaginisce for their December Challenge to use Red and Green BUT NO Christmas Collections. I used the Red background paper, the brown tree trunks and the Green B side of Leaves from the Apple Cider Collection. The Green for the trees and the mat on my title is from the Live Loud Collection. I also used my i-rock for the gems on the trees and my i-top for the berries on my holly.

I hope you take time to play along with me in these challenges.

The 1st Day of Christmas

HOWDY ALL!

WOW! It's been awhile since I've blogged! We decided to downsize some things and my dial-up was the first to go. It was S-L-O-W, but I could at least blog. I have a smartie phone, but it takes way to long to try to do a post on it, so I just haven't blogged much. Anyways, have you seen the 12 Days of Christmas Challenges that is going on over at Frosted Designs? They are doing 12 challenges and have a TON of goodies up for grabs. You don't have to do all 12, you can just do 1 and get in on the goodies.
They are also having a "Refer a Friend" and I told my friend Brenda about it and she made a layout and posted it on her blog HERE. Please go check it out and leave her some LOVE!!

On the 1st Day of Christmas Frosted Designs asked me to use 1 Bird on my project.
I used this sketch from Sketch Inspiration from the Dec 1-8th Challenge, which I WON~:

I am also entering this layout over at Paper Secrets for this color challenge:
 I hope you take time to play along with me in these challenges!
