Once Upon A Sketch challenge and a New Christmas Layout!!

Today a new challenge is up at Once Upon A Sketch. It's not my turn to do it, but I still wanted to let you know about it! I hope you play along with us! :)

The challenge:

Journaling Criteria: This time the journaling criteria focuses on you as a woman. What is the best thing about being a woman? Motherhood? Shopping? Make Up? Girls nights? Gossip? Your journaling can be as long as you wish and in any language, but you must journal at least 2 sentences on the best part of being a woman.

You must combine the journaling criteria with this sketch:



The prizes:

Lots of good stuff to win!

1. The winner of this challenge, as chosen by the Design Team, will receive a pack of fabulous chipboard from Imaginarium Designs...



It includes some of their latest and most popular chipboard. The best thing about this, is that the pack will be different each month and will be customised to fit the winners needs. So if you have girls, you will be sent girly chipboard etc.

2. One randomly chosen winner will receive a mixture of products from The Chip Chop Shop to the value of $25.00 plus postage.


I really hope you play along with us this!!!! You have until Nov. 29th to upload your entry here. Can't wait to see what YOU do! :)



I also have a layout that I want to share with you today. Prepare yourself...it's a Christmas layout! You may be saying that you are not ready for that yet, but I have SO been feeling the Christmas spirit lately...maybe because of all the Christmas projects I've been working on. Or perhaps it's because I already started listening to Christmas music! ;) Too early?

This layout uses the AWESOME (and I can't emphasize the AWESOME enough!) new Christmas line from The ScrapCake, called Cozy Xmas. I have LOVED playing with this line...it's one of my favorites for sure.

So here's the layout:


Every Christmas season we drive around and look at lights. It's a tradition. I did it when I was a kid, and now we do it with our kids. :) I always look forward to it. Anyways, this picture is of a house we saw...it is not my house (I wish), just a fabulously beautiful house that was magnificently decorated for Christmas. :)

Here are some close up's of my layout:



Those chipboard fences are from Magistical Memories, and the alphabet is from Fancy Pants Designs. All adhesive used was from Helmar.

Ok...so now it's your turn, 'fess up...has your Christmas music been on yet? We're all friends here. ;) I can't be the only one.

Have a fantastic day!

Pamela....I looove the Christmas season, and adore this photo of Christmas lights. I remember going to see the Christmas lights when I was young, and equally enjoyed doing the same with my own children:) I can tell by how whimsically fun this layout turned out you really enjoyed the new Christmas line from Scrap Cake!
