Christmas Angel

Have you seen the December Challenge over at Show us your stuff. It's a fun one; use non traditional christmas colours with a christmas themed photo. With the extra criteria as always, being to use at least one handmade item. Make sure you pop on over here to give it a go, there are fabulous prizes up for grabs! And for all of you who have children that scrap make sure to check out Sophie's corner. The monthly challenge Sophie has set for the kids is fabulous. Check it out here.

The journalling on this layout is about our tough Christmas last year. We found out the week before Christmas how sick our Son, Lachlan was and that his condition was incurable. Madeline our angel managed to keep us smiling for Christmas and gave us Joy through the difficult time. Lachlan was born and died 4 days after Christmas. It's hard to believe its been almost a year.
We had a camping christmas trip booked last year but we never made it due to Lachlan's passing. So this year we will be camping and we will do something in remembrance of our son's first year.

Here is my example layout for the use of non traditional christmas colours on a christmas layout. I went with pink, aqua and silver and had fun getting my hands messy with this one!

Notice the gorgeous Ah Scrap goodies I have used on this layout; a blue felt pinwheel and 2 paper fan wheels. Get your own gorgeous Ah Scrap goodies here

My December Sketch challenge

Hello and Happy monday to you all.
Can you believe it's December already!!?!

The year has gone so fast for me.
For my monthly Challenge over at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia I decided to set a sketch challenge. 
I took a layout design that I have used a few times and turned it into a sketch.

I would love for you to pop on over here and give the challenge a go. For the challenge you can Feel free to add, subtract embellishments, rotate or flip sketch etc. However i'd like to be able to see how you have actually used the sketchVery Happy
