We all have special holiday moments and memories. My favorite part of Christmas was seeing the excitement and wonder on my daughters face on Christmas morning. Now that she is grown and has a daughter of her own I know that Kaleah will have that wonderful look of excitement on her face Christmas morning.
I know with the economy being the way it is families are having a hard time just putting food on the table this holiday season. If you are able to and would like to help a family in your neighborhood check with your local school or church. You will be amazed at the simple requests that the children have on their Christmas lists and the basic needs that you can help meet. Knowing that another child will have that look of wonder and excitement and will not be hungry even for that 1 day is the greatest gift you can give to yourself as well as teaching your children to be giving.
From my family to yours Happy Holidays!

BoBunny Winter joy printed cardstock.
DCWV Solid cardstock
MLYB chipboard shapes available at Paper Patch Crafts I just added some stickles and a rhinestone to glitz it up a bit.
The handbag was a diecut from the Paisley cricut cartridge. I used the 4 inch size setting so that they would fit into a 5x5 square vellum envelope. I know my nieces will love them almost as much as the money inside!! lol

In this one I used:
SEI Christmas Mint Paper for the backround.
I used a 4 inch coaster and covered it in MLYB Christmas Delight Frosty Flurries Cardstock.
( Both the coasters and the MLYB are available at Paper Patch Crafts )
The snowman is a cricut cut from Doodlecharms. Out of all of the cuts from Carts that I tried I just was not happy with them so I posted to the group and a wonderful member posted to try Doodlecharms and it was perfect! I never would have looked on that cartridge without her helpful suggestion!
The scarf as you can see is made with fibers. They are easy to manipulate on a small item like the snowman. I put a snowflake brad through it to hold it in place. I used pink chalk to give her pink cheeks. An artist I am not so the eyes are not perfect but I still like her!!
Snowflake paper is Imaginisce Frosted Window
Cardstock is Papertrey
Snowflakes are glitter cardstock and I used the When its cold outside cricut cartridge then placed a glitter brad through the cuts to hold them together.
Let it Snow Sticker is MLYB and is available in Annes store.
Blue Ribbon was purchased at Michaels many moons ago
I outlined my snowlady in stickles glitter glue in pearl sparkle.
Have a wonderful day and come on over to the patch to participate!!

was asked to do 3 Design team projects this time and all of them were made with the Christmas Delight Papers as well as embellishments. Working with this line was alot of fun. I love the vintage look of the papers and embellishments. As you will see from the pics above I did add a little of my own stuff also. My own items were:
Some of the ribbon
Stickles Glitter Glue
Imaginisce Blue Glam rocks
Everything else was all provided by Anne from her store. If you still have cards to make go check out this wonderful MLYB line. It is amazing to work with and will make your card making or Christmas layouts a breeze!!

This card was made using items that can be found at PaperPatch Crafts.
This card was made using the:
Prima Little Boo Papers
All of the embellishments are available in Annes store. I am sorry I don't know which line they are from.
I used my expression to cut the verbage and I used my cuttlebug to cut and emboss the cats and pumpkins.
Have a great day!

This is my take on the latest challenge at Paper Patch Crafts on Facebook. Take a minute and check it out and maybe come and play!! The link is here on my blog!
I am just starting to purchase Fall papers and I am so looking forward to working with them in the near future. Summer has been great but I am very ready for cooler weather.
A nice warm fire, slipper socks and scrapbook time! Summer there is always something that needs to be done outside. I love the privacy of a large backyard but it is alot of work!
Hope everyone has a great day!

This project was created for Paper Patch Crafts using the new Snugglebug line which is carried in her store on Ebay. It is manufactured by Little Yellow Bicycle. This is an awesome line that has everything you need to create cute pages and cards for that special little one!
I will be posting my second card very soon. I don't have alot of time lately to papercraft because I also work and have been very busy. Sometimes it is hard to find a balance of work and play. With that being said this will remain short because I am off to play with all the Snugglebug goodies!

I am on pins and needles waiting for the design team box to arrive! Anne at paper patch crafts is very creative so I know it is going to be a challenge and I am ready!!
I also need to get a card made for my brother and cards for guys are hard for me to design. It is easy to do one for the hubby but everyone else it is hard! Think I will head over to Paper patch crafts on facebook and ask for ideas!
I got great ideas from Anne but chose to do a sports type bday card. Which you see posted.
