Hello, hello! I hope that you are all having a good weekend! It is COLD here today. I think our high is going to be 16 degrees. I know some of you in the northern US and beyond are much colder, but this is our coldest day so far this season. Brrr!
Sunday means we have a brand new challenge posted for you over on the Lasting Memories blog today. This is our final challenge of the year and it will run for the next 2 weeks. Then we will be back on Sunday, January 1st to start off the new year with a new theme and a new set of challenges.
December's theme has been "Best of 2016" and this week's challenge is a little different. Our challenge is Anything Goes, but you must use photos from 2016.
For my layout I used photos from May of this year. A little baby robin had fallen out of its nest, and Scott had rescued it and put it back in. We couldn't wait for Ada to come down and see it. We thought she would think it was pretty cute, but she was not impressed!
I was lucky enough to get a sweet gift in the mail from my good friend, Lisa, and in that gift was Crate Paper's "Cute Girl" 6x6 paper pad. I could not wait to get in and use some of it, and when I came across these photos, I knew they would go perfectly together. All of the papers are from the 6x6 paper pad, with the exception of the pink graph paper. I believe it is from American Crafts, but I am not certain. And I just now realized that I used the same background paper for this layout, that I used on last week's layout! I think I must like it!
I made my own title piece on this by typing up the title on a piece of the 6x6 paper and die cutting it into a circle. I then matted that onto a pinked circle, and then on another circle. I added some messy thread behind the title piece, and added in a puffy bird sticker and a couple of puffy hearts.
I used this month's sketch from My Creative Sketches. They have a great prize up for grabs, so check them out and play along!
Head on over to Lasting Memories to see the layouts from the rest of the design team. We would love it if you played along with us!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I will be back soon with another project to share with you!
