S is for Snow!

It certainly is and boy, did we get a nasty little dump of it on Friday!

Fortunately we're now coasting with our 9 degree temperatures and the white stuff has melted nicely......till next time!

So, there's a fun Online Christmas Crop happening this week on the Forum over at Two Scrapbook Friends, and that's the reason I'm here today.  Each of the DT plus 'the Friends' host a challenge for anyone to join in with, and there are always fabby prizes to be won.

For my challenge, I decided to deliver a sketch to help the creative juices flow.

So here goes, Sketch #11

I hope you can use it or even join in with the crop if you get a chance.

For my page, I may have mentioned previously once or twenty how much I love Authentique papers, and today's offering is no exception.

This one's using their 'Peaceful' collection.

This photograph was from the our weather the previous weekend......our first snowfall of winter 2012.

The page has a fair bit of texture going on with the cheesecloth, my favourite Martha Stewart texture paste and a doily die cut.

The teeny scissors came out again to fussy cut a little birdie from another sheet of PP.  I also couldn't resist some of the Tim Holtz 'film strip' ribbon.......I love this stuff but hate the fact that it's so difficult to get it to stay put.  I think I've tried practically every adhesive out there (including a hot glue gun) none of which are very successful, so this baby's held down with a couple of small star brads.

The trusty Dymo labeller provided strip journalling.....perfect for the colour scheme on here.

In fact this page has quite a few of my favourites on there.........stitching included, to hold back the torn paper edges at the top right there.

That's about it from me, but I'll be back in a couple of days.

I'm intending to participate in the December Daily festivities this year, but as we're on December 3rd already and I haven't made a start, I'm already playing catch up!

My house is a little crazy right now with one sick kiddo, and preparations well under way for the arrival of Nanny and Pappy, flying in for the holidays later today.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Have a great day and I'll see you soon,
