Christmas Traditions

Merry Christmas! and many blessing for your New Year ahead!

I am here, not very present this past month to say the least but here now...does that count? I really have missed the interaction I get on my Blog...the new year promises to be charged with exciting new things and a renewed commitment to my 'Kraft' and my blogging :) 

Early in the year I was asked to be a Contributing DT for one of the Let's Scrap challenges. Now if you have followed along on my site over the years you would know that I am a HUGE fan of everyone there, have served multiple DT terms and LOVE all their sketches, challenges and events! The Administration Team there is so hard working and packed with lovely ladies from all over the globe! I would love to re-join the ranks of talented ladies for a future DT term, but for now I'd like to share my layout for today's challenge over at Let's Scrap.

Ezme is hosting today's challenge and the criteria was to use any Let's Scrap sketch, incorporate a featured technique from the site, add some stitching and scrapbook something about your Heritage, an important event or tradition...this is what I did:

This layout is highlighting our family's love of games...during the holidays we spend many hours playing various of our family favourites is Monopoly...we currently own 11 different versions of this game! I thought it was fitting to refer to this as the 12 days of games as we play one game or another almost daily :)

Pink Paislee has a great Christmas line out currently called Snow Village...I picked up a handful of sheets and an Ephemera pack...makes for some quick and easy scrapbooking!

My main tag was created using some of the Ranger Distress Stains...I am loving playing with this medium and anything Tim Holtz is magical!!! 
Tags are one of my newest loves {heart}

The Ephemera pack makes short work of embellishing...consider grabbing one for your next paper purchase...these bits will work nicely with my Project Life pages as well.

Thanks so much for stopping in today! I've missed this and you, so I need to get busy playing with my paper and glue so I can get back into my bloggin' routine once again!
