Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping in today! So I have some challenges to share with you. The first is not scrap related, but life related. It is the reason I haven't been on the computer as much and why I didn't have a post up yesterday. I hurt my leg. :( knee specifically. I tore my Meniscus. So I have spent the past several days on the couch with my leg propped up and if I must admit....a little doped up. I have crutches...and I hate them. Can't really figure them out well. My computer and my scrapbook room are both it makes it difficult. I still have assignments to do this week though, so I'll have to figure out a good way to do this.


The new challenge is up over at Once Upon A Sketch! I do hope you play along with us! :)

The challenge:

Journaling Criteria: Write at least 2 sentences on what you look forward to in the next month. December is a festive month so your journalling could be about the Christmas season, the holidays, the presents or if you do not celebrate Christmas what does December bring for you that you look most forward to? Note:You layout DOES NOT have to be about Christmas! It can be about anything December brings.

You MUST combine our journaling criteria with this sketch:

My Layout:

I changed it up a bit and incorporated a lot more pictures on my layout. :)

I used BasicGrey's Nordic Holiday collection. I used a 6x6 pad of paper, and then some fun chipboard.

Here are close up's of my layout:
