Well hello again everyone! I hope you all had a very happy Christmas and are feeling positive about the new year. I've been a bit remiss with my blogging of late as I'm sure you can all relate to given the time of year. Once the holiday season (and my work roster) settles down I'm hoping to be able to spend more time at my creation station. In the mean time I have managed to get my DT submission done for the new Challenge at SCRAP AFRICA.  A nice and easy sketch challenge for you to see out the old year and welcome in the new.

I decided to use this sketch for a few of my Christmas decorating photos. I will also be doing this Christmas' photos in PL style and I'll post some pics of the finished product in the next few weeks. So here is the sketch:

And here is my take:

I've used some items from a kit that I purchased recently from Studio Fourteen40 - labels, sequins, stars, wood veneer "celebrate". Gold is the "in thing" in scrapbooking at the moment and I love the look for special occasions. The pp is Kaisercraft and the gold doilies, arrow paperclip & red spirals are from my D-lish Scraps stash.  I do hope you can play along with us at Scrap Africa and it's a good chance to use some of your recent holiday snaps :)

Until next time....
