Holiday Frame

Good Morning!  Today I'm showcasing another picture frame I made for one of my sisters!  This frame I found at the Dollar Store and it's covered in black glitter!!  (It really sparkles in real life)  Of course, it's leaving glitter everywhere, lol :)

I used files from Scraptastical Kreations to embellish it.

Hot Cocoa!

Here's some gifts I made for my kids to deliver to their bus drivers and Sunday School teachers:

I used Sophisticated Scallops and A Polarized Christmas cutting files from Scraptastical Kreations.  They contain some homemade hot cocoa mix complete with either peppermint or french vanilla marshmallows - perfect for those cold winter days!!

Sweet Season!

Good Morning.  Today I'm showing you a Christmas present I made for one of my sisters (I have 3 of them).  I purchased a photo frame at a rummage sale and thought I would "dress" it up.  She's got 2 "sweeties" (my niece and nephew) so I'm sure she'll be able to find some photos to put in it.

Here's some close up shots of the sweet little Ginger girls :)

I had this Christmas paper in my stash and decided it matched really well. You can find the files at Scraptastical Kreations!   Then I lucked out and found some coordinating stickers to embellish with.
Thanks for looking!

Bushel O Fun

I'm sharing a page I made using the Bushel O' Fun file found at Scraptastical Kreations!  This 12x12 page will hold pictures from our apple picking, when I get them developed :)
Thanks for looking!!
