Lets Crop with Sketch N Scrap!

Amidst all the hustle a bustle of  Christmas I have found time for a little scrapbooking! What better way to celebrate some crafty time than with a crop and Sketch N Scrap are having their first ever!

The first challenge was from Lisa and one of my favourite scrappy games, bingo, as I love that you can mix and match to suit your style or even take yourself out of the box!

So here is the grid and I chose to go straight through the middle from top left to bottom right.
So here is my layout and I very rarely scrap older photo's but this is little ole me at one month old being held by my mum at our home in Berlin.
All the papers are from the delicious Kaisercraft Madame Boutique Collection. 
Please excuse the bad images as the weather outside is frightful! Not so good for taking photo's.
The flowers were made using a Martha Stewart punch and some inky edges. I adhered buttons to the centres for my grid ingredient to use buttons or flair.

The 'two alphas' are in my title and for my 'free' square I used washi tape.
A fun challenge and I'm hoping to try the 'day two' in the crop, this one is Kelly's Fruitcake Recipe Challenge and it looks great too! 

There are going to be four challenges finishing on the 18th December and you will have until 21st December to play along and be in for the chance to win a prize! Below are the links to the challenges so far and of course there are our normal sketches for this month too! Hop on over to the Sketch N Scrap blog to join in all the festive fun.
