25 Days until Christmas

Hey Everyone,
Its the countdown to Christmas day........have you done all your shopping? Or are you like me, "Haven't even started".... argh!

A new month...that means lots of new challenges.
Sketchy Boards inspiration  is really pretty.

I have combined the sketch with colours in the photo to create my layout. These photos were taken in Canada on Christmas day 2011. This was the first time 3 of my children had scene snow:) Looking at these photos, trying to keep cool in the heat.......the snow looks like a good place to be right now!
I've embossed some hearts on the kraft paper , along with some hand stitching. I  used a punch for the snow flakes...layering them with doilies and buttons, a sprinkle of sequins for a little sparkle.

Hope you get time to join us for the challenge
Have a wonderful week.........Happy Creating!
