hi there fellow scrappers another challenge and sketch for you.

December 15th Challenge

Journalling Criteria/themeOur Christmas traditions. 

We would love to hear how everyone spends Christmas Day. Even if you do NOT celebrate Christmas, what do you do on Christmas Day?

Remember that you are allowed to also create a card or altered project based on this sketch and instead of the journalling criteria you need to use a quote. 

another fabulous sketch by the amazing Nadia Cannizzo xo

this month I chose to use non-traditional Xmas colors for my page.
I adore this combo --- caramel/aqua with a touch of rust.
Xmas to me is all about spending time TOGETHER  ..
my journaling reads
spending Xmas day together is our family tradition, sharing happy times, delicious food, music and laughter.. and part of the fun for me is seeing the delight on the faces of our "grandies" !!
