The Sweet Life

Christmas Memories to Cherish

In Australia we celebrate Christmas in summer, often in scorching heat. Christmas bbq's and even beach picnics are the norm. Although I stick to tradition, ice cream plum puddings are substituted for traditional boiled and steamed puddings and seafood and salads have replaced the traditional turkey in many homes, but I would never give up the favourite thing on the table!

A couple of years ago we travelled north for Christmas, and when I say north I mean WAY NORTH.....all the way to Quebec City. It was truly a winter wonderland and one that will be etched in my mind for ever.

This photo is me sitting in Santa's chair. He must have been off feeding the reindeers or something at the time. I have created this layout for the November Mood Board challenge at Maja Design using their papers of course and would be thrilled if I was lucky enough to win their new Christmas collection "I wish".

I am honoured to be guest designer over at Scrap Our Stash  this month and this is my second layout I have created for them, this one being for the November Sketch +3 Sketch Challenge.

I really liked this sketch so I pretty much followed it to a T. I used all the colours in the challenge plus some glitzy cherries, inkadinkado ink and I made an index card using a die. The cuckoo clock and scroll hippie are from Dusty Attic and the papers I have had in my stash for many years.

My husband and I visited the beautiful Black Forest in Germany last year and cuckoo clocks and all things cherry were everywhere! My husband is always obliging with the silly hats we come across in our travels although, I'm not sure he knew he was going to end up on a scrapbook page when he let me take this picture.

Off We Go

I am very honoured and excited to have been asked to be a guest designer for November at

The first challenge for this month is

And here is my layout

I have never tried to create a space theme before and with a bit of trepidation I got out my stencil, mists, paints and glitter. I used a Kaisercraft die to cut out my stars and the chipboard rings are from Dusty Attic. I have used a lot of foam and cardboard to lift up my foreground about half an inch to give my layout dimension and create a tunnel/lost in space effect. I had a lot of fun with this layout going out of my comfort zone. I kept remembering that great quote: "there is no wrong or right when it comes to scrapbooking".  

November 15th is the reveal for the mid month sketch challenge...would love to see you come back then and see what I created. for that challenge.
