I look so forward to LLL
every single month.

And this month,
I am focusing on Holiday LO's and goodies.

Most of the LO's are 8X8 pages from JYC 2012,
but there are LOTS of other goodies thrown in here to.

This is Sir Cuteness at Sears looking at the Snoopy display....
So sweet!!

Here is my Christmas Manifesto.
So many details here.

Here is a gift bag and topper,
inspired by May.

Again lots of little details here.
I love the CHRISTmas tree made with paper strips,
and LOVE the banners.

A fun tag ~~ again May inspired.

Here are some snowflakes Punched out of some paper that
was used as an scrap piece to try out some mists.
Loved it SO much I punched these lovely snowflakes out
and added some bling.

Advent Calender Love.

December Goodies

So when I order scrapbook supplies,
I generally browse and order.....
browse and order.

But about 2 or 3 times a year
I grab bag it.
There is one site in particular that I do this from and it is May Flaum's
She has not had a sale in a while.
But I love ordering things from her.

Well, so the other day I found another blog
through Paper Issues (love this Etsy store)
and she was getting ready to have a studio sale.
I just do not normally order from someone either I don't "know"
or have had a recomendation from somebody I "know" on,
but this time was different.
Just something about her.
About her site.
About her style.
Caused me to want to give it ago.
So I ordered a box from her.

Oh, who is she?
Well her name is Leslie
and you can find sweet Leslie right here.

Well, I got my box,


I normally don't do posts about my supplies,
but I just HAD to share this.
Y'all are just not going to believe this.

First off,
she sent me an ENTIRE paper pack
complete with the 2 sheets of stickers,
all still in the package.
The entire pack,

This adorable letter sticker sheet.

Here are the CHRISTmas goodies she sent me.

Lots 'o card stock.....

Some even embossed.

Lots of paper!!!!!
Some were current,
some were past lines,
but I did not care AT ALL!!
Some many of the past lines,
I don't have and don't really know about,
being that I haven't been scrapping really that long.
I mean I've had scrap stuff for a LONG time,
but as far as actually using it,
only about a year or so, of real creative play.
Which I love btw =)

Some up close of an October Afternoon paper.
There were 70 sheets of paper.

Look at these wonderful stamp sets.....

Yes, alpha stamps.
I know right?

And then once I took all my pics and got back to my studio
I found a CHRISTmas set I forgot to include,
and it is SO cute!!
Maybe I'll just show it in action. =)

And so many extra goodies.....

and SO much more.....


And then a Maya Road Mini Album with Tabs ~~ love.
Maya Road canvas butterflies.....
Oh my!

And some how I didn't get the pic on my computer,
but there was also 3 washi tapes,
1 Yellow sparkle spray,
1 paint dabber,
distress embossing powder,
and I'm sure I'm probably forgetting something,
but WOW!!!

I mean seriously,
this was incredible!!

So visit Leslie,
love on her, 
and if she has any boxes left,
nab one!!!

I'm hoping to be back later today with my
Layout Love Linky for December.

Until then.....
Have a Blessed and Beautiful,

Christmas Past and Taggin'

So today in JYC, we were reminiscing about Christmas past.  

I told the story of putting up our Christmas tree as a kid,
the day after Thanksgiving.
No deviating.
ALWAYS the day after Thanksgiving!
My mom was cool like that =)

I was always so excited 
couldn't wait for that day to get here.

I was one of five,
so this was always a day of chaos and fun.
Love and joy.
It was family to me.

So for the page,
I built a little Christmas tree in the corner 
decided to journal on a tag.
Added banner and twine
misted and inked
I may add a few things to these pages as the month goes on,
but this page has such a wonderful vintage feel to it.

I do have a question though,
if you are doing JYC,
are you adding your #'s to the prompt pages?
Are you adding the photo prompts to your book as well?
I'm just a tad confused.
So far
no numbers on mine yet.
Thinking about adding them to the outside of the page protector.
Any thoughts?

Then in May's Camp Scrap
she challenges us to make a tag using Distress stain.
I have three of these,
so I used one of those and some other Distress ink pads
and some stamps,
a little embossing 
There you have it!!!

I hope y'all are having a crafty fun season.

Have a Blessed and Beautiful, Crafty kind of Day ~~

Topper, Prompt & Manifesto = Fun Day!!

Well despite a sore throat, 
today has been fantastic!!

Let's start by saying.....
I'M LOVING Camp Scrap!!

Today May talked about making some pretties for gifts,
and since Sir Cuteness and I started his advent calendar today,
this gave me a perfect reason to do a little something special in his
Advent Gift tomorrow.....
a little package topper.

How cute is this?
I used a Mr. Huey's mask and misted a brown paper bag from Michaels,
and folder a die cut piece in half and added this little Crown beauty.
Sir Cuteness is gonna LOVE THIS!!

Today was the first day of Journal Your Christmas.
It was Manifesto day.

For Advent today,
Sir Cuteness got mini Moon Pies.
He was over the Moon excited!  =)

These next two are the photo prompt photo's for JYC today.
We were to take a pic of something that reminds us of early Christmas.
For me it is the craft show in a nearby town.
I generally go every year with my friend G,
but she couldn't go today,
so my dear Arielle when with me,
an old tradition made new again.
Love that!
My dear Arielle and I went to our favorite tea house for breakfast
and coffee =)
and then we were off to the local craft show.
It was so crazy at the craft show, 
that we couldn't even park,
so we opted to do some shopping instead.
It was so fun!!

This girl is such a Blessing to me.
We had the best time.
Look at this girl.
She is just gorgeous.
I want to do most of my pics for JYC in black and white,
but look at this blue wall,
I just couldn't black and white this one.
Nope, color it shall be =)

Thank you so much for stopping by.
