Merry Christmas Eve everyone!!  Today is the start of the very next challenge over at Digi Darla's.

Peace on Earth plus use Ribbon

I chose to use the image from Digi Darla called "Blessing from Heaven."  I thought it looked "Peaceful."  Any new Mom could tell you that!!  I have a good friend that just had a baby a few weeks ago and I have yet to meet the new little one.  

I also had a little help from the Ladies over at Freshly Made Sketches 66 for their Clean and Simple sketch here...

I hope you all find some time for yourself this week and come on over and join us at Digi Darla's.  You have until Saturday 12/29 to play along.

Merry Christmas Snowman!! DDC # 41

Hello and Good morning!!  Gosh December 10th already.  So much to still do.. both on my shopping list and FUN stuff with the fam.  Hope everyone is gliding right through these Holidays!!

I am here to bring you the newest challenge over at Digi Darla's.
The theme is SNOW FUN with some BLING!!

Here is my "Snowman with a Tree" Digi Darla image that I used.  As you can see, my BLING is the Snowman's buttons and the center of the ribbon bow at the top.  For some reason my bling looks orange in this photo, but it really is supposed to be red.  All of my products are from Stampin' Up except the image from Digi Darla.  She's got some cute ones!  Go check out when you can.

A couple other challenges that inspired me for my card...

It's Snowing Men - Show them your Snowmen

Ist Day of the 12 days of Christmas - Use 1 Bird on your project

Thanks everyone for stopping by!  Happy Holiday fun times to all!! 
I'll be back again this week.

The Tree Farm!! LMCB # 118

Hi everyone!!  So we had our first dusting of snow over the weekend.  We saw it just enough to say it was there and then within an hour it was back to rain. The kids are excited at the possibility of more this month.  How about you??

On that note... we have a new challenge over at Lasting Memories.

This weeks challenge is
"Anything But Snow"
Make a layout that does not show a hint of snow or wintery weather.

These are photos from our last year's trip to the U-Cut Tree farm for our tree. It was overcast and drizzly.  No snow to be seen!!  :)  I am showcasing a Digital image from our sponsor, Cedar Chest Designs this week called "Holiday Reindeer."  

I couldn't pass up the chance to highlight my daughter's Reindeer Antlers that she wears almost every day of December until Christmas.  Such a festive kid we have.  

 One lucky winner will win a $10 gift certificate to the Cedar Chest Designs store. 

Some closeups...
 Here is cute "Holiday Reindeer"

And this shows better my use of 4 patterned papers for the Frosted Designs challenge.

A few other challenges that inspired me with my layout...

First time joining these Ladies.  :)


For their 12 days of Christmas on Day 4 was to use 4 different patterned papers.

Thanks so much for visiting today!!  Hope you found some inspiration to scrap a NO SNOW layout for us to see at Lasting Memories.
