Merry Wishes!

It seems that each year I vow that I'll have things done so that I can spend the last week or two before Christmas more peacefully. Well, I almost did it this close! Still, I can not believe how quickly these last few weeks have gone by!!! And with all the busyness of life and the holidays, I've neglected to keep up with posting here...eeek!

I have a few more things on my to-do list but I wanted to post some Christmas projects from the Bo Bunny Blog that I've been meaning to share here. ;)

12 Days of Christmas Frame
I don't know about you, but I forget the words after the 5th Day! :)

Bo Bunny: St. Nick
Fiskars: Mint Condition (leaf) Squeeze Punches to make the poinsettia.

Noel ~ Flowerpot angel
I used to make these flowerpot dolls for craft shows ages ago. A little updating on an older craft and she turned pretty cute.

Bo Bunny: St. Nick collection
Fiskars: Butterflies 1 & 2 Shape Templates

Paper Quilted Ornament
I was inspired by the fabric and ribbon quilted ornaments I've seen. I did the same here but with paper instead.

Bo Bunny: 'Tis the Season collection

That's it....time for me to finish off the last bit of my Christmas shopping and tie up any loose ends. I plan on enjoying these next few days baking cookies, wrapping and relaxing with my family. I'd really love if it would snow again! It doesn't look likely so I'll be hoping the snow from this past weekend lasts a few days longer. It's been years since we've had a white Christmas!

I want to wish everyone a wonderful week with your families and friends! Be safe & I hope you enjoy every moment! Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

A layout...

Here's a recent layout I created as a guest designer for Debby's Dream Studio. Debby is a friend of mine from when I lived "down south" for a few years. She's a very sweet lady and an inspiration to many who love scrapping and crafting. She's asked me to create a handful of projects with Fancy Pants' Rough & Tough collection for her website that I'll be sure to share here over the coming weeks. I must say that I just LOVE this line!!! It's colorful with fun patterns and perfect for layouts and projects of my little guy. So thanks very much, Debby!

Title: 8 is GReaT!

A few detail shots..............

Fancy Pants: Rough & Tough patterned paper; Rough & Tough Cards, Rub-Ons & Buttons
Fiskars Americas: Twinkle Twinkle, Brick and Round 'n Round Squeeze Punches; Ultra ShapeXpress Tool; Tags 1 & Circle Shape Templates; Pinking and Wide Pinking Paper Edgers

Well, there's tons to do this week...more getting a head start on my wrapping (yeah, right!) and much more!
