December Stick it Down

Here's the December sketch that I created for Stick it Down:



I chose some photos from Christmas morning last year.  We always host a brunch at our house.  My mother in law and brother in law come, as do my parents.  Afterwards, we open presents with my  in-laws.  

I absolutely loved the December Hip Kit Club last year.  The papers and embellishments were exclusives and oh so pretty!  I love those puffy sticker words!

LM 469 - Mixed Bag - Icon Papers

This month at Lasting Memories, our theme is "mixed bag."  This week, our challenge is to use icon papers.

I've had this lightbulb paper in my stash for a while and I challenged myself to use it.  I came across these photos from seeing the show "Matilda" with my mom last winter.  In the show, Matilda turns on a light bulb with her mind, so this paper was PERFECT!
