Christmas Express by JoJo's World Designs

Again I found this designer thru one of the freebie lists. I really wish I could remember which one or even her blog address for you but I forgot to bookmark it for myself. She had a Christmas kit freebie on her blog for 14 days. I found it on the last day and was able to get all the links. Some of the elements came from another kit by the same name. It was a joint theme. The other designer is Designs by Sarah. I used Sarah's reindeer and the snowman on the right. To get the last part I needed to make a layout and submit it to her. So lucky you, you get to see what I came up with.

Christmas Jolly by Fiona Jardine

This week I picked up a couple of freebies from designer, Fiona Jardine. I don't remember which digi freebie list I found her products on but I picked up a cute set of stickers from her blog and a paper pack from her FB page.

Traditions Blog Train Extra Freebie

I know 'The Blog Train - Traditions' is nearly over and most links will be taken down on December 31st. I will have this link posted for a week just so anyone who wants it will have a couple of extra days to get it. I made this with the portion of the train from 4 My Babies Scraps. Here is a preview of Michelle's kit and a link to her blog where you can pick it up at. Then I'll show my layout and the link to my 12x12 PNG QP. Thanks for stopping by.

I should have posted this yesterday but since the kit won't be in the store till either Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest I'm still ahead of the game. This latest release by Winsor Digi Designs is chock full of goodies. There are elements for every month of the year. I made two layouts and I saw layouts in my head for every month which is unusual for me. Here is a preview and a link to the store. *** UPDATE - THE KIT IS FREE ALL THIS WEEK *** So head on over and pick it up.

The Whinermans by Dr. Sue

Today I had a new friend give me a Christmas gift. She is the mother of one of Monkey's school friends. I had made a cute simple felt ornament as a gift never expecting to get anything in return. I like seeing people smile. So while this gift was unexpected it was extremely important to my friend. Dr. Sue as she is known in the literary world loves to write and this book was a labor of love. The story about 'The Whinermans' is a fictionalized version of her life. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes Dr. Seuss. Here is a link to Dr. Sue's blog: The Whinermans

Holly Jolly Christmas with some Christmas Freebies

Again I was able to play with another kit for Christmas. This one is called 'Holly Jolly Christmas' and has your more traditional colors. Knowing Chelsea you will be able to get this kit at a fantastic buy this week. I didn't know this tidbit in advance and I should have blogged about it when I found out but I didn't - Sorry, that wasn't very nice of me. To tell the truth I really didn't think about it. Chelsea is giving away one complete kit every day till Christmas. I don't mean only one person will win it. Every 24 hour period Chelsea will post all the links to download one complete kit. Todays kit is 'Colorful Easter'. So go check out here blog/store here.

Now for the preview of 'Holly Jolly Christmas'.

SNP Weekly Challenge December 18-24, 2011

The challenge for this week is a Grab Bag/Recolor Challenge, all rolled into one.

Karen has 5 grey-scaled elements in a folder. They are numbered 1 to 5. Leave her a message to this thread telling me which number you would like to scrap, and she will email you the element.

The element of surprise is that you can not see the elements before you chose. However, I am including a "close up", just to tease you a little. LOL.

Grab Bag Challenge Rules:

Pick a number from 1 to 5 and post it in the SNP thread and Karen will send you the corresponding element.

You must recolor the element to use in your layout. Instructions are in the challenge information page.
Post your layout in the gallery.
