2 Christmas Giveaways!!

                          Christmas Giveaway #1
 


                     Christmas Giveaway #2

                      











First of I want to say that I feel that I have been MIA lately. So, I wanted to give you a couple of updates on my life. We have just started to look for a new home. We will be staying in the same area and hope to be moved by February(might be wishful thinking on my part).With this in mind I have been working on getting my design teams and hop projects done. Also my oldest daughter Alivia's birthday is on December 25th, so we are going to be celebrating her birthday this Saturday. I did make all her invitations and will share them shortly. This week I'm going to make some goody bags for all the guest that will attend her party. Along with all of this I can't believe Christmas is just a few weeks away!! I hope to return to my normal posting after the holidays

Layout
  I am entering this layout in the CardzTV Challenge #15 "Bling It Up!" at http://wwwcardztv.blogspt.com



To put this layout together I bought preprinted pages from a scrapbook event I went to.  I bought 2 of each page because I wanted to cut some of the pictures out and layer them. I cut the scarecrow and pumpkins out of one page and popped it up on matching page with the same picture that was printed on it.  On the second page I did the same thing with the pumpkins. I stickled the the pumpkins on both pages and then I added buttons. I stickled all of the buttons also.
