A Vintage Christmas
Little by little my package of retired Christmas paper is going away, sniff...sniff... But the good news is that my pre-order items from the Holiday catalog have arrived!! It has been so hard to resist breaking into those new goodies! I do have a project planned for Saturday that will use some new things from the regular IB&C. So if you're tired of seeing vacation scrapbook pages and Christmas cards, be sure to visit me on Saturday!
I used sketch #8 from Merry Monday and here's the wonderful part! They are having a month long challenge to use their past sketches, so I can actually enter their current challenge!! Woo! Hoo!
I really loved this sketch and even managed to use up an oval scallop I had in my stash for the main image! I also broke out the pastels for this one. I think the soft color works so well with the vintage style.
I hope everyone is having a good week and finding some time to be crafty! Thanks for stopping by!
