Yes i have scrapped!! Once upon a Sketch for Dec!

Hi Folks,

Well Christmas is almost upon us.. i have lots of photos to share of the girls and our activities but today i wanted to share a layout with you. Yes! I have scrapped!

I had a lovely evening of scrapping at a dear friends house and managed to get a couple of layouts done- the first time in months- it felt good!  So here is my entry for the December Once Upon a Sketch challenge- the challenge was to write about what December means to you... i guess that i didn't title  it very well- but my hidden journalling explains... for me its about many things but for us here in NZ - where Christmas is in summer and usually hot it is about being outside- at the park and the beach and in the pool and hanging out with friends. This is Hollie's absolute best friend- Callum- we hang out with him alot and spend lots of time with him and his family- we are even having Xmas lunch at Callum;s house this year! These 2 adore each other- they are so cute!! Well that is what i chose to scrap and write about and what December means to me - sun, friends and togetherness!!

Here is the sketch

And here is my take on it- using some older Prima papers that are very cutsey!!

After not scrapping for a few months it was great to get back into it and to be happy with what i had done!

Thanks for looking and for your lovely comments- i appreciate each and every one!

Back soon with my last post before Christmas!

Happy new year,

This is a very beautiful layout. The colors go so well together. I love the fact that you used a black and white photograph.

Happy 2013, Andrea

By the way, I also participated in the challenge, have a look at my blog and if you like, become a memeber
