Hello and G'afternoon!
The last couple of days have been scrappy ones for me and I wanted to share my latest layout with you that was created from Get Creative - Jan 15 sketch.  I thought it was so cool and wanted to give it a try.  Also, through Facebook, I just came across a scrap site called Scrap It Girl and I'm going to enter this for their January challenge “BLING, GLITTER, SHINE, & SPARKLES” with the use of all my sparkly stickles.

Here's the sketch from Get Creative...

and here is my take on it...

This is Giddy, my cat, sitting under our Christmas tree in perfect harmony with our Santa grouping.  How cute is this?  Such perfect timing on my part to capture such a photo!  I'm sure he'll never do this again.

I used Peppermint by Crate Paper for this layout.  It fit perfectly!  And I'm happy with the outcome.
I applied silver stickles to a few chipboard stars, in a variety of sizes...

I then outlined, lightly with pencil, the shape of a christmas tree and traced it with silver stickles as well.  To finish it off I added green misting and some red splatters.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Enjoy your day!

Currently Creative

Kellie Winnell from give a girl a blog is having a "currently" moment and I wanted to join in.  

What exactly does this mean?  It means, what currently is going on creatively with you right now?!  

  • Your craft/creative area.
  • What you are currently working on.
  • What you current craft you have made.
  • Your creativity on your desk.

Here's what is currently creative with me... 50 shades of cardstock!

  I'm currently packing for a weekend crop and I'm deciding on the colors of cardstock to take along with me.  Normally I'm working on a layout, being creative and my desk is a mess, scattered with papers and embellies!  But not today.  Today, my desk is clean and looks lonely... until next week!

I came across Kellie's blog on Facebook a few weeks ago and I just love her!  She is so fun and creative, and full of inspiration!  Go check her out!  

I hope you can join in!  Its so fun to see what others are up to and to see what they are creating!
