Santa Was Here.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
With just over a week to go before the Big Day we are all busy shopping for those last minute gifts, planning the food for Christmas day and attending all those parties! But just in case you are totally ahead of yourself and find you have time for some scrapping why not join us girls at Sketch N Scrap with this new layout sketch challenge?

Such a fun and festive sketch - designed by Kelly Holifield.

I decided that it would be fun to scrap one of last years Christmas photo's of my girls opening their pressies as we are at that time of the year and the sketch is so timely.

My banner across the page consists of hand drawn and cut holly leaves combined with some punched glitter berries.

Layered banners, holly and stars in the top corner.

These pressies were fussy cut from some old Christmas paper from Kaisercraft.

Our very own DT member Mandy is sponsoring us with an awesome prize package from Stampin Up!!!!

I do hope you can take a little time out to play along with this sketch and for all the details and more DT inspiration just visit the Sketch N Scrap blog HERE.

Thanks for your time and support in visiting my little blog. xx

Christmas Kitty.

Welcome crafty friends and I know I have been a little lax in the blogging department lately but I had a crafty day on Saturday so I have a page to share with you today for the Inspired By challenge over at Sketch N Scrap.

Here is the sketch which was inspired by a layout by DT member Cathy.

You probably recognize our cat Ginger as he is quite photogenic and I do like to scrap his cuteness!
I turned the sketch to accommodate the portrait photo and played with my water colours to create a splattered background.

This cute bunny die-cut  is an old Lily of the Valley image that I found in my Christmas stash. 

A silhouette scribble circle, some fussy cut  holly and a smattering of stars for the top right of the photo.

Of course a Christmas page would not be complete without glitter somewhere!

If you can find time in your busy pre-Christmas schedule we would love for you to play along with us at Sketch N Scrap.
To see Cathy's original layout that the sketch was based on and more DT inspiration head on over to the SNS blog HERE.

Hope your big day preparations are going well.
Thank you for taking time out to visit lil' ole me!

Midway Mania.

We will all be rushing around this month preparing for 'The Big Day' but as this is a time of celebration why not start off the festivities with a brand new sketch challenge from Sketch N Scrap!

This super sketch was designed by Lisa Hidy and it's great for those of us in a hurry! Clean and simple or you could jazz it up if you have time!

I went with clean and simple but jazzed it up with bright, fun papers.

These circles were fussy cut from some old American Crafts papers and I simply dotted some little quote strips around as well.

We are pleased to announce another new sponsor this month, our very own DT member Mandy is sponsoring us with an awesome prize package from Stampin Up!!!!

As always the awesome design team has gone all out to inspire you to play along with us. 
So hop on over to the Sketch N Scrap Blog HERE.

Well that's all from me today, I'm off to write out my Christmas cards.
Thanks for stopping by. xx
