Thiessen Gathering

Can I get a whoop whoop??? Yes another page done for my parents calendar!!

Every year we get together with my Mom's side of the family for Christmas. It used to be in December when I was young and then as the family grew it started being held in November and then this year it ended up being October!!!
Before you know it we will have Christmas in July!!! Lol!!

I again used a sketch to get me started and it was from DCWV for their stackaholic challenge.
I will also enter this into the challenge at Clique Kits.

PP: DCWV gilded paper, Crate
Ink: Versafine

100% Sweet

Another page done for Mom and Dad's calendar! Yippee!!!

I used a photo of my daughter and son-in-law for this one and also used a sketch from Stuck?! Sketches to give me a kick start.
I am also playing along with the challenge at Clique Kits.

PP: Authentique, B.G.
Mist: Heidi Swapp
Stamp: Elles Studio
Doily: Recollections
Other: Tag, Sequins
Here is a closeup of the sequins and mist splatter. I think it adds so much to a layout.

Boy oh boy life has been busy and I'm starting to freak out that Christmas is around the corner and I AM NOT READY!!!!

Still not done my Christmas gift calendars but I got another layout done for my parents calendar today. It's a layout of my nephew Matthew and his fiancé Ashley.

PP, chipboard & ephemera: Maggie Holmes
Washi & doily: unk
Once again I kept it simple and pretty one dimensional since it's going on a calendar.
I used the November sketch at Scrapbook Circle and will also be joining the challenge at Clique Kits.
