Something new for our challenge this week!

Hi everyone. Yay, yay it's Friday!! The boy's first week back at school is done and dusted, and we are truly back into the swing of things. What a busy and chaotic week. It certainly is much easier having them home on holiday! Anyway...what can you do! I am certainly not up to homeschooling!

So, let's get onto the sketch for this week. When I saw it, I instantly thought I wanted to do a scrapbook page instead of a card. I have had this idea in my head for quite some time, and I am really pleased with how it turned out. So, here is the sketch:

And here are a few photos of my layout from different angles. I used the Jewelled Tree set, which I love!! I created a wording border across the top of the page, used the Christmas tree stamp in the top right hand corner of the layout and embellished it with some gorgeous green, red & silver Sprinkles. I also stamped a few stars from the same set. This is a lovely Christmas set, and so versatile.

We would love for you take part in our sketch this week, remember all you have to do is follow the sketch and add some bling!! Click on the Bling Challenge Blinkie in my sidebar to take part.

Hope you have a lovely weekend. I am off to get a new camera tomorrow, so I am SOOOO excited!
