Practical Scrappers - Winter Projects

This week's challenge is Winter Projects

Christmas is over - but we're still doing one more theme week over at Practical Scrappers. This week your challenge is to show us anything winter related.  This week also marks the end of our designer teammate Barbara's term.  Barbara has been with Practical Scrappers since the beginning and has been a wonderful contributor!  What a great gesture it would be if you mosey on over and wish her well!

Getting back to the Challenge, the deadline to enter is SATURDAY at 5:00 ET
Best regards and Happy Scrapping!

A Couple of Layouts

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday!  I was happy to be able to fit a little bit of scrapbooking in among all the activity!  This is a layout that I posted over at Let's Scrap.  The sketch (#131) was for a double-page layout but it's up to you whether you want to do double or single-page.  I chose single and did the left side of the layout.  This layout is about Temple's new hairdo!


This layout, again of Temple, is one I posted over at Artastic where the inspiration this month was Vermeer's Girl with the Pearl Earring.   The criteria was to use one portrait photo and display earrings somewhere on the page.



Temple and Charles have gone off to the movies to see the Princess and the Frog and I'm going to veg out in front the of T.V. and watch one of my favorite Sci-Fi series, Dr. Who.

Best regards and Happy Scrapping!

Practical Scrappers - It's Thursday...

And that means I am up today! The challenge for the Design Team this weeek was to create a layout about a Christmas tradition we practice. Well, Temple bakes cookies for Santa every year. She'll leave a plate of cookies and a glass of milk for his arrival!!! So this is something she will be doing tonight. The pics in this layout were from her cookie making from last year.



Best regards and Happy Scrapping!

Practical Scrappers - Anything Christmas Continues!

Good Morning!

This Holiday Season has snuck up on me so quickly!!!  We've been last minute Christmas shopping this weekend past, our tree is still not trimmed and all of the presents still need to be wrapped.  Worse yet, I have not sent out any Christmas cards :(  I usually do a digi for most, and I handmake some for closest family members and friends.  Well, my digi card is done but I will now be exchanging Merry Christmas for Happy New Year!  If I have any time at all, I'll make a few Happy New Year cards as well!

On to Practical Scrappers!  This week's Challenge is still the same -- Anything Christmas.  Go on over and join the fun and enjoy all of the cool inspiration, not only from the Design Team but your fellow Scrappers as well!

Best regards and Happy Scrapping!

Practical Scrappers - I'm up today!

It's Thursday and you know what that means--my project is posted today over at Practical Scrappers! I created this Christmas ornament using a styrofoam ball. I cut PP strips and pinned them to the ball! It was my first effort and I was quite pleased with the final outcome. Do you like the way I Photoshopped the ornament within an ornament???

I have to make more of these with Temple--she thought this one was "Sooo Cute!"

Best regards and Happy Scrapping!

My Star Album

It's Thursday which means my project was posted over at Practical Scrappers! This star album was a new endeavor for me and I found it to be quite easy to make. I also love the idea that I was able to use pictures that were already in my Crafts Room which were just fine but had not found their way to a layout -- Practical, huh!!!

So mosey on over to Practical Scrappers and join in on the "Anything Christmas fun!

Some detail:
