Once Upon A Sketch / BITW

Hi There!

Xmas is almost here. EEK! I hope you're all nearly organised! I mangaged to squeeze in a bit of scrapping time & got a couple of challenges finished.

The first one is for Once Upon A Sketch based on this sketch.
Here is my take on the sketch
I have used some Teresa Collins papers & some Bo Bunny Noel paper

The journalling criteria was to write at least 2 sentences on what you look forward to most in December. I chose xmas. Especially xmas morning! I luv to look at the sleepy little faces with their hair all messed up as they start to unwrap pressies! My journalling says " I Luv December! It means xmas day, presents, decorations, glitter, bows & paper. But most of all, I look forward to watching the sleepy smiles turn to huge grins of excitement!'

This next LO is for the new BITW challenge. The word is time

I have used a mix of papers frome the Scrapcake, Prima & Glitz. A a big mix of blooms from Bo Bunny, Prima & Petaloo

And lastly this is my entry for the My Creative Scrapbook November challenge which was to use a pocket on your page

I used some Glotz papers & wotnots. For the pocket I white washed a kraft envelope then stamped it with a butterfly/script Kaisercraft stamp then added some liquid pearls & a Prima resin. Inside the pocket is a letter from Evie's Godmother

I also wanted to share a mini 'toot'. My LO was shared on the Prima Blog for the November BAP winners. Check out the announcement here http://prima.typepad.com/prima/2011/12/winner-winner.html. Congratulations to the lovely Delaina Burns who was the winner & to all the other girls that had LO's featured too!
