Fun stuff 2 weeks before Christmas....

Our current challenge over at SKETCHES IN THYME is this cute sketch...

and here is my layout:

and over at the QUICK QUOTES blog, Barb's challenge is to use Vellum on a project...

I was doing a canvas and I usually use rub-ons, but I decided to try some Quick Quotes vellum I had leftover from a CK class that I didn't use.
I was using dress pattern paper on this, so after I adhered the vellum piece to the top right (words) and lower left (word LOVE)...I added some more dress pattern over them to mute them a little...
LOVE how these look!!!

And I'm going to use this post to share my published layouts from Scrapbook News & Review magazine August issue.... with their respective categories!!
