Scrapbook Blessings Club Challenge!

This week's challenge is Anything Goes! Yippee! I was inspired to go back to one of the challenges I did not get to participate in because it was before I joined the team here. I created a card using the challenge from our very first one here at the Scrapbook Blessings Club. Check out the link and try your hand at this technique...it was super simple and makes a great sympathy card...I think so anyhow!

Here is a picture of my card...

 
 
Be sure to head on over to Scrapbook Blessings Club to join in on the current challenge!

Scrapbook Blessings Club Day!!

I have the post today over at  Scrapbook Blessings Club! Come see what our blog is all about! I am bringing you a great post and project today!

Tip: Banners are really easy to make and can help a birthday child
feel very special. I create one for each of my 7 grandchildren on their
birthday each and every year!

Here is a picture of the most recent birthday little guy in our family!
He had a candy themed party so I created a
round shaped banner to resemble candies.

 
 
Thank you so much for joining us here today...hopefully I have inspired you to maybe create a banner and not be intimidated by the large task it may seem to be.

~Secret Santa Blog Hop~

If you are looking for Cookies for Santa blog hop please scroll down.



Check out this super wonderful blog hop! Santa is the theme of this hop! Head on over to Scrapbook Blessings Club for some awesome inspiration from my Design Team members.



What a super great season this is! I love sharing my creations...due to lots of company and many festive activities one of the things that has taken a back seat this season has been my crafting! Certainly not how I had planned this 2 months ago! But such is life! So, I have pulled something out of the archives for you to enjoy!

You should have come from Cristina's blog.

This layout is of my daughter's 2 boys and the baby's first visit to Santa...my granddaughter unfortunately would not sit on Santa's lap and so only the 2 boys are pictured...I so love capturing the joy of a child's eyes of the magic of the season.

 
Tip: Make sure all your tiny cut pieces are adhered good
 cause you don't want them to get lost! Haha!

Head on over to Carolyn's blog for the last stop.
 

~Cookies for Santa Blog Hop~

 
Thanks to Lisa over at Honeybearz Designs for hosting another wonderful hop!

Who doesn't like leaving Cookies for Santa? We get together every single year and create special memories as a family either making or creating something to leave for Santa on his special night. This particular year we enjoyed a festive soup bar and put together a cookie plate for dinner. There is always a plate put together for Santa!

You should have arrived here from Deb's blog.

 
And now head on over to Jessica's for some more awesome Cookies with Santa inspiration.

Challenge:  Color Challenge
Red, White, Kraft and Black

December 3rd - 9th, 2013


We've got a great color challenge cooked up for you today:  red, white, kraft, and black.  This week, we're all using the very cute Nordic Pines collection from Bazzill Basics which fits the bill perfectly!   Check it out:
   
  I have been obsessed with coloring lately. I used snowflake Marci to highlight this lovely paper. I added a pop of green with her dress so she would really stand out! She will adorn my scrapbook room so I can just look at her during the season. I am so new to this cute little images and coloring I am not quite ready to give them all away! Enjoy!

  
   
  
We'd love to get your take on this color scheme!  Head on over to Cuttin' and Stampin' to see other inspiration and link up your projects.

Good morning! This is the next to the last day of the blog hop!!! I sure hope you all have enjoyed it! I have today this cute little decoration that my friend colored the LaLa Land Sunny Luka while at my house scrapping the other day. So I took him and this little ceramic stand I got from a thrift store, repurposed it and turned it into a holiday decoration she could display in her scrapbook room for the holidays.
