December Crop Addict

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all had a relaxed and beautiful time with your family and friends yesterday. I was feeling cruddy on account of a cold and wasn't sure if I was feeling up to taking the kids to Thanksgiving Dinner. Kevin had to work :(, and so it was up to me to venture out with the four of them alone. Thank HEAVEN for modern medicine! I was able to make it there and stay for several hours! It was a lovely time, but it's just not the same without my hubby. Fortunately, my family is having our Thanksgiving Dinner tomorrow at my brother's house. This time Kevin can come, so it will feel more like the "real deal" when we're all together. :)

In my last post I mentioned that I had been a busy scrapper-girl, and today I thought I would post everything I've been working on for Crop Addict. The December kit for Crop Addict is so scrumptious! Lots of Heidi Grace Frost Blvd. goodies as well as We R Memory Keepers White Out Explore stuff! And if that's not enough to wet your appetite, Debbie also included a bunch of 6 X 6 Basic Grey papers! Tons of papers this month! FUN!!! My December projects are below:

I was worried about not having any snow pictures for the Frost Blvd collection, until I realized it would be absolutely PERFECT to scrap Jensyn's White Witch Halloween Costume! Love that flocked paper! I decided to cut out the snowflakes and use them as accents. Add a bit of sparkly Diamond Stickles and you're instantly transported to a Winter Wonderland.
Look at how little Jensyn and Owen are in this picture! My sister brought me a disk with some photos from a few Christmases ago and I couldn't resist making a page of these little munchkins with their cousins!
The We R Memory Keepers Explore was perfect at getting some of my Pumpkin Patch photos scrapped!
I decided to experiment a little with a shaped layout. I like how it turned out except for I'm thinking I may take off that back piece of scalloped Bazzill . . . Hmmmmm. I'll have to stare at it for awhile before I decide for sure. LOL!

Here's my adorable niece Josie, a few winters ago enjoying the snow with my brother's dog, Eli.
Just playing around with a card idea. Sorry, about the shadows. I didn't realize they were there until I was uploading. OOPS!
Crop Addict is also having a Tinkering Ink Manufacturer Challenge this month. (Check out the message board for details.) As a design team, we were lucky enough to receive some of the upcoming Beloved Collection to play with. WooHOO! At first I was a little intimidated by the bright colors, but after a few minutes I was converted to a doodley mood and set myself free with this great paper line. I had a lot of FUN! Tessa Ann Watte from the Tinkering Ink Design Team gave us a beautiful sketch to go from, as well. I love how Tinkering Ink paper instantly makes you feel young and funky! :)

Well, that's it for now! I'll be posting some Adornit projects within the next few days, so I hope you'll check back and let me know what you think!
Happy Weekend!
Jana :)
