12 days of Christmas Preparations...

Hello there!

It's been a few weeks since I last blogged.  Time just seems to run on fast forward sometimes.  I've been really busy with my Close to my Heart and Epicure Selections business in the last month.  It  was great!  Love it!

Now I need to catch up a little on my scrapbooking and I have to remind myself to keep taking pictures,  I seem to forget lately.    Now to add to my scrapbooking resume, I have started creating sketches!  Some were featured on the Let's Capture these sketches website and it was exciting seeing what the different talented scrapbookers did with my sketches.

My first one was  LCTS sketch # 157.  Here it is 
and here is what I made using it that sketch and some Bo bunny, My little bit of whimsy pin, and soem Prima wooden embellies :

My sketch was also sketch #158 :
 and here is what I made using that sketsh, and one again some Bo bunny:

I also made a few layout using Creative Scrappers sketches
this one was made using sketch # 234 some Studio Calico paper and my beautiful daughter's  class pictures

And here is a layout using sketch # 233 and some gorgeous Authentique paper.
 I just love the feel of that paper!

Now, if you are looking for a bit of inspiration and a little boost to get your mojo running, I've got an idea for you!  Head on over to Let's Capture our Memories forum and look for the 12 days of Chrismat Preparation posts!  I will be posting a new scrappy challenge each day starting today and running for the next 12 days.  Don't forget to post your creations for a chance to win a prize! 

Here is the day 1 challenge : First thing to do to get ready for the Holiday season and to get in the spirit of the holidays is to put a little Christmas music on.  So your first challenge is to create a card, a layout or an altered item using a song as your inspiration.  For example, you could use song lyrics as a greeting in your card or a song title as you Layout title.  It's up to you.

Good luck and have fun!
