Yep - that's right - I've been scrapping! LOL - what better to do after the kids are in bed than scrap some of the pics I've taken this holiday season!! These first two are a two pager from our evening decorating Christmas cookies. They were done with "Cookies for Santa" by me - don't forget you can still get this kit at Hummie's World by completing the 6 challenges. But only a few days left!! Also don't forget to pick a challenge from last week and leave me a comment with your link - I will choose 5 winners next week (lol - when i get around to it....)

Progressive Scrap - Day 7 - Final Day!

Ok - lol - i know 2 steps in one day... ooops :) Ok - final step! And don't forget to check out the other posts! As usual you have until Monday morning to get your layouts in. Upload them to the gallery of your choice and the leave a link here in the comments of this post. If you missed a couple steps, just click the "Progressive Scrap" label at the bottom of this post and it will bring up all my progressive scrap posts. Next week (since I'm guessing most of you aren't going to be getting layouts to me on Christmas weekend) i will be doing a challenge a day - this way if you have a spare moment this week for scrapping - you can pop in for some inspiration. You can do any of these challenges any time between now and when i choose a winner after Christmas weekend. I will be choosing 5 winners next week - and each lo you complete will get you an entry!

Ok... STEP 7 - Add a date, finishing touches and a title - the title should use 2 alphas OR be word art. :)

Progressive Scrap Day 6

Ok - Step 6 - sorry this is late in coming - I have had tons of things going on - including concerts that I am singing in, cookies to make, houses to clean, freebies to make and speed scraps to plan!! I'm trying to auto post a lot of this - so i don't have to stress over it - but i messed up! LOL - i didn't realize I hadn't gotten the links up for the first day of freebies either!! oh well... :P

STEP 6 - create a small cluster - duplicate it and put them both on the layout.

Challenge-a-day - Day1 and a Freebie

Ok - since I'm guessing y'all might be a bit busy this next week - instead of doing a progressive scrap - I'm going to have a Challenge-a-Day all this week, Each day this week I will post a challenge here along with a piece of a kit (that hopefully i will have finished in time to give you the last pieces...) :) If you have time to scrap - pop in for some inspiration and fun - stop by each day to snag the whole kit.

Challenge of the Day - Today's challenge is an ad challenge - there are so many great ads out around Christmas time. I saw this one at Target and thought it looked like a fun LO - so your challenge is to be inspired by this LO - doesn't have to be exactly the same - just be inspired by it. :) Leave a link to your LO in the comments.

I will be giving out gift certificates to 5 people for Christmas - each LO will earn your entry into the drawing - if you use my kits (where applicable) you will earn an extra entry. Scrap those Christmas Pictures!!

And here's my layout - LOL - i kinda departed from it a bit - but really i just kinda liked the three stripes - now you take whatever part of it you like and make the layout your own!

Now if you are like me and are just now getting around to scrapping your Thanksgiving pictures - this LO was done with an awesome kit by Pixiemama Designs called Bountiful Blessings

Here is the kit I will be giving out this week - each piece will only be available for a day or so - so be sure to stop by to grab all the pieces. I was too lazy to make up individual previews - but trust me - you want all of them : )
