December is Good!

I have exciting news...I was picked to be Scrapbooker's Club House's December Guest Designer! WOOOOHOOO!! I am so thrilled about this. Nicole and all the girls at SBCH are awesome. They have great monthly challenges and are always ready with a kind word and friendly smile. Come on over and check it out!

Here are a few layouts I made with my guest designer kit. It included My Mind's Eye 'Out & About' patterned paper. This stuff is beautiful, I love it. It works for so many different themes and photos. The first one is a 6x12 LO, which is my first ever. I was scared at first, but it came together quickly and I will definitely be doing more of these!

This one was based on a Becky Higgins sketch. I like the clean lines and how I used so many photos on a 2-page LO.

I know it looks crooked, I can't seem to take a straight photo or fix anything in my photo editing software right now. Looks so professional, doesn't it....Yikes! I'm just lucky to find time for scrapping right now!

While i'm at it, check out these ornaments I made for a friend of mine. They were easy and fun and I only broke one!!

And to top it all off, here are the cuties on our lawn. My DH bought the polar bear last year and he thought the bear was lonely. He now has 2 penguin friends and they seem to enjoy our neighborhood!!! Happy Holidays, everyone!
