So we survived the holiday hub-bub... stocking stuffed, gifts wrapped and now shredded paper. WHEW!
So far one of my favorite seasonal paper lines is Jovial from Basic Grey it is beautiful (click the link to see everything in the line). SO the ISSUE challenge this week is to make a layout using your favorite "holiday line" it does not have to be Christmas, it can be Thanksgiving, Halloween, Easter whatever.. if you have not entered any of the challenges, this might be the one for you. I would encourage you to give it a whirl as I have several smaller prizes to give away and one album kit. Now that you have all that new scrappy stuff you got for Christmas, you should be feeling the need to scrap so enter for a chance to win one of the prizes (any and all entries for the 9 challenges must be posted by MIDNIGHT Dec. 31, 2010) Well here are the samples I made and be sure to check out Basic Grey TV (BGTV-- click the Jovial link above) they have all kinds of great videos to show you the products AND ideas on how to use them. Have a safe and happy new year friends!

Here is a fun layout I did from a recipe challenge... hard because the ingredients are very simple. I like it... don't love it, but I like it! here ya go.. I like the card a lot more thatn the layout. Oh I made the pleats on the card by simply cutting a strip of paper about 1 1/2 inches then triming the strip with pinking shears, and then cut and folded in the sides on different size strips to make the pleat uneven. give it a go, it's pretty fun! IF you want to get in on the challenge and a chance to win prizes, here is the link
