'twas the week before Christmas..

..and I'm scrapping fall photos. LOL. I needed to take a breather. In between making Christmas gifts (and waiting for UPS to bring more of certain ingredient for said gifts) and making some Christmas cards... I went to my photo bin and got inspired to create some non-Christmas items.

The first page uses Pink Paislee Spring Fling. I know it's called spring fling, but they also work well for fall. I added some orange bling to the tree and viola - fall paper. :)






The next page uses Pink Paislee's Vintage Moon Collection. This page is about celebrating "being 6" and key things that happened to my dd at that age. There is a few Spring Fling papers on this page, also (remember, I decided it was also a fall paper). The little owl is from Chatterbox, the die cut from Making Memories, and alpha stickers from American Craft.





And last but not least, my Christmas cards. I used Stampin Up Winter Post set for the skaters, and the sentiment is from the Best Yet hostess stamp set. Kraft and Very Vanilla cardstock, Riding Hood Red and Chocolate Chip ink, and Bella Rose patterned papers. You can shop 24/7 at my Stampin' Up store. Right now they are offering free shipping on order $70 and above.





Still waiting on the UPS man to bring my special ingredient for my gifts. Until then, maybe I'll make some sweets. Have a great week and hope you get all your shopping done.
