Scrapping Recipe Challenge #29 & The Girls' Kids Can Scrap Challenge Cards

This is my layout for Scrapping Recipe Challenge #29 at Sketches! {by Tamara}.

It was my turn to issue the challenge this week, and the three required elements are:

  • really old patterned paper
  • naked chipboard
  • twill, twine, or raffia

I pulled out the oldest patterned paper I could find. This paper, both the border strip at the bottom, and the main sheet of paper, are both from a QVC Colorbok kit that I got a long, long, long time ago! I think it was called Memories in Minutes or something like that. I think it was purchased in 2002 or 2003? Something like that! The main sheet is colorblocked, and I pretty much just ignored that, and I border punched the other sheet. Old paper looks better when it's border punched, don't you think? The paper is double sided, so I used the solid side to mat the photos. The naked chipboard is by Basic Grey, and I used raffia that I got on a gift basket! So, I recycled too! All of the embellishments are from my QVC Cosmo Cricket TSV that I got. It's got about a million pieces in it! The "silly" letter, the "Hey Santa", the "hang your stockings", and the snowflake trio are all from that kit. The photos are from the first Christmas that we had Princess. Yes, she proudly posed by her stocking!

Next, Kids Can Scrap has a card challenge going on. Emily made these!

Jessica made these! They're such awesome cardmakers!!

Well, it's snowing . . . again! However, at least it's warmer out today. By warmer, I mean, it's 23 outside today. Better than the single digit temps and below zero wind chills we've been having! I'm not sure how much I'll be posting in the next few days. Have a great week! Happy Holidays! Make your holiday season be wonderful!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Loving the Princess page, of course!!!! I really need to scrap some Charlie - maybe I should try to sneak in a LO of last Xmas as a gift!
There's no real surprise that your girls are such wonderful card makers - they get it all from their lovely & talented mom! But these are really great cards!
Hugs to you and your beautiful family!
Merry Christmas!
