Real vs Fake ?!

This is my reveal for Let’s Capture Our Memories Sketch #103 – so fun to play – we had a Christmas theme which just worked perfectly with the sketch.  I rotated the sketch 90 degrees , then decided to replace all the strips with a different techniques or items; stamping, stitching, washi, stickers, paper, rubons, pearls and to do it in the shape of a tree.  Love how it turned out

This year I bought a fake tree but dh insisted we get a real one – he did sweep up the first few needles , but guess who’s been doing it ever since !!, plus crawling around under the tree trying to get some water in to help it survive plus contorting myself to actually wrap it in lights and baubles.  I really LOVE the lights but I’m not so concerned about the tree underneath – next year – definitely NOT a real tree!

I also used this page for the scrap and play challenge 15; I used star, red, green, presents, tree


and I also used it for the pixels and paper challenge – I was inspired by the lighted Christmas trees, the expanse of snow (white b/g), the swirl of the aurora (hence my swirly sequins)

Been Craving Scrapping

I figured once we’d had our Christmas party I;d have lots of time to create. Unfortunately the next morning I got really sick with an extremely painful throat and ears.  Left it a few days to see if it improved but instead it got worse.  Finally made it to the doctor who diagnosed it as the flu !!  Can’t complain since I haven’t been really sick for about 20 years.   I’ve been slowly getting better but have had no energy to do anything.  Fortunately, the house was super cleaned for the party and there was leftovers for us to eat.  Today I plan to get back to scrapping.  Meanwhile – here is a Christmas project I created earlier in the month

My Creative Sketches November Sketch

An unusual but fun sketch at My Creative Sketches. Sometimes a page just falls in place and this is one of them.  I saw this quote this morning on a mixed media projet and knew I was going to use it sometime – worked perfectly on this page.  I really love how it turned out

Sketch n Scrap Card Sketch

Card sketch #39 at Sketch n Scrap was pretty cool – I loved the diecut.  I used the basic elements of the ketch but changed it up a little

Squeezing in …

a few cards.  I’ve been so busy here.  For some reason I decided to invite some friends and neighbors over for dinner and drinks.  For the last few days I’ve been cleaning out the fridge,he pantry, the cat room, my son’s old room, moving furniture, getting a tree, decorating it and the house, planning the menu, shopping for supplies and Christmas shopping for the kids.  If that’s not enough I’ve been running a bookfair at the hospital and laying laminate flooring at my MIL’s house 2 hours away.

Anyway – I managed to slip in some cards but I REALLY, really want to scrap some pages – keep checking out the challenges at fav sites.  Maybe on Friday …

for you - enjoy

It Must be Getting Close to Christmas

I can’t get enough of Rudolph.  I created this card for a challenge at sketches4all.  I used a plastic domed container that once held some sort of embellies.  I filled it with red hots to make a red nose and incorporated into a rather egg shaped rudolph head.  I cut apart a chipboard snowflake painted and sprinkled with some glitter.  Should make a fun card for our nephew.

Christmas is Creeping Closer

I’m trying to get in the Christmas mood – planning  a Christmas get together, getting out all the decorations, getting a tree,  At least it snowed today – I don’t think it would feel like Christmas without snow.

Here’s  a card I managed to create today – sorry for the odd angle of the photograph
