Just for Fun!

Hi all! I had a little extra time and I was able to whip up this layout in between doing "chores". It is based off a sketch from the North Ridge Publishing Sketches Edition. It was so nice to scrap just for fun. 

I used October Afternoon's Midway line for this layout. I received the 8x8 pad in my Santa Sack from them this year. The 8x8's work GREAT for 8 1/2 x 11 layouts! Thanks for stopping by and having a look. I hope everyone has a fabulous Holiday.

It's Time To Hop With Kiwi Lane

Hello all my scrappy loving friends! Welcome to my little corner of the Kiwi Lane Designs blog hop. You should have arrived here from Apryl Holland's blog. This month for the hop there is SO much scrapbook inspiration floating around I can't wait for you to see it all! The theme for this month for the most part was the holidays….and I of course jumped on board with the festivities. 

First up I made a simple gift tag to add to a holiday package. I used Tag 7 from the Tags Bundle. To add a little detail to the bottom I also used my Mini Scallops 1A. 

To help with staying in the spirit of the holidays I made an advent like calander. I put a little twist on mine and turned it into a mailbox. In the mailbox I rolled up little pieces of paper and on each slip of paper there is a daily festive activity to do. I again used the Mini Scallops 1A to help with the decorating and also turned to the poinsettia shapes from the Tiny Holiday collection and the Christmas Bundle. My girls are really enjoying taking a piece of paper out each day and finding out what fun activity they will get to do.    

From here you need to head on over to Brenda Smith's lovely blog. Make to comment along each stop of the way. A random winner will be chosen from one of the participating blogs. The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Kiwi Lane shop. The blog hop will continue till Sunday December 8th. As always thanks so much for stopping by.
