'Tis the Season~

For making lots of scrappy decorations! This is an actual chicken feeder turned candy dish {never used for chickens;)} that I decorated for Christmas this year. I used Cookbookin's line called Sugar and Spice along with a bright gingham ribbon and a couple glittery snowflakes. 

I also decorated the "back" so that if the whim hits, I can turn this around and have a bit of a different look.
And just in case you were wondering what my little chicken feeder was wearing last is a shot of that:
These are super easy to make and I am currently hosting a challenge over at Kitchen Keepsake on just this sort of thing. The challenge is called "All Dressed up and Ready to Share" and runs until the end of the year. Come on over and check it out!

I have also been enjoying working on and COMPLETING a few layouts!
This is my design team work for the week over at Let's Scrap! I machine stitched along the line of the bracket...actually worked out okay. I just took it nice and slow and voila! I also used a craft knife to cute out a bit of the holly leaf so I could slide my photo underneath it.

Cheri gave us the cutest sketch to work with for this week...and yes, I am working on that second's all about the cheetos;)!

I also did this layout using one of Cheri's sketches and a My Creative Scrapbook kit. I just love these photos of my oldest daughter~

 I used LOTS of ink to distress the edges of my papers as well as on the ric rack which I machine stitched to my page. I don't seem to be able to finish a page without my sewing machine lately;). I loved cutting the banner from one of the Fancy Pants papers and then I added some dimension with pop dots and a random piece of green rope ribbon.
This was such a fun little impromptu photo shoot on the side of the road. Funny which photos make the best layouts.

Hope this season of joy is indeed joyful for you~

All I want from Santa is...

CHEETOS! Yup, that's what baby bear asked Santa for. Santa looked at me like, did he say what I think he said and I nodded my head yes. He'd been planning on asking for Cheetos for several weeks. Guess I need to relax on my junk food rules around here...
The gang barely fits~

Baby bear must really want those Cheetos, he even gave Santa a hug this year!

AND he was even patient and sweet while waiting in the HUGE line to see Santa!!!

In case you wonder how it is taking a teen to see Santa with his siblings...;)

My kids have always asked Santa for only one thing each. This year it was Cheetos, a sewing machine, a horse set, a sled and the teen told Santa he'd just share baby bear's Cheetos. Hmmmm.
Hope your Holiday Season is Joyful~
