December Challenge layout

Here's my layout for Better Scrapbooking December Challenge - do a layout with red, green and brown. There's still a few days left to upload yours...

A cute memory of my son and his Aunty whispering away before bedtime.

Think the photographer of this layout may have consumed too many Christmas bubbles...

Scenic route paper, ribbon, 'All Mixed Up' Cricut cartridge for font

Christmas cards for 2011

These are my efforts this year.  I was going for the simple but stylish look... Translation -  too many cards to make and not enough time AND surely if I add a twine bow it will look stylish...

Ribbon, twine and swirly embossing

Kaisercraft paper, twine, Bazzill dots cardstock

Portable North Pole

If you're after something really cute to do for the kids this Christmas, check out the Portable North Pole website. 
You enter your childs details and some photos of them and Santa sends them a personalised email.  It's very cute! 
This is the second year I have done it and I totally recommend it if you want to see your kids faces light up when they get an email from Santa!

Queen of my heart

My adorable daughter wearing a very cute tartan skirt was the inspiration behind the striking black and red colour scheme.

This layout is for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge - to use ribbon on your project.  I used two coloured tartan ribbons and then passed them through two buttons and tied them.  It looks quite effective.  The font used was from 'Once Upon a Princess'.
