It’s been a long month and I am looking forward to the kid’s finishing school and getting ready for the Christmas break!  So what would December be without some Christmas fun!  I have decided to do a ‘Christmas page’ for my recipe challenge this month at Colorful Creations BUT I haven’t restricted it to a Christmas theme.  The recipe has some great ingredients you can use for any type of theme page – I just took the easy route and made a page from some of my Christmas photos!

I have listed a number of ingredients’ for the ‘recipe’ to get the creative juices flowing:-

·         Red AND Green papers ONLY
·         Numbers
·         Minimum 2 photos
·         Metal AND Brads
·         Border punch
·         Scrunched up paper
·         Decorative ribbon (I used a ‘snowflake’ one under the basket)
Here are my example:-

These two sweet cherubs are of my godson and his sister from Xmas last year.  They are showing off their gifts I sent to them.

-          I have used a little poetic licence and the page does show some ‘cream’ but majority of the page should be RED & GREEN
-          I used a strip of numbers down the RHS of the page
-          I have two photos of my very sweet Godson & his sister
-          I have used a metal sign that says Noel & a heart brad
-          I scrunched up some paper and it looks like some ribbon ruffled
-          My decorative ribbon is the ‘snowflake’ looking one under the basket
So check it out it would be fantastic to see your pages and join a group of fellow scrapbook enthusiasts!

PS. Just to entice you a little more – if you join in the fun at CC you will be in the running to win a RAK from me!!

I also have a TAG CHALLENGE at CC and thought you might like to join in the fun and see what you can create - especially since we are approaching Xmas and everyone will need tags on their presees. 

Here is my sample:-

This month I thought I would add a little ‘recipe’ to the tag and help you create one (or three).  How bout you add these few little items to your tag:-

·         Decorative ribbon
·         Flower/s
·         Metal brad
·         Felt
·         A Christmas or festive word
Enjoy Creating!

This month I thought I would put a little twist into my Tag challenge at Colorful Creations -just to make it a little more interesting.  I have created a Name Place Tag for your table setting that can be used for any theme – birthdays, weddings, thanksgiving and of course - I am getting in early - I have created one for Christmas!

Here is my sample:-

Then after you have used the name tag on the table you can then double up with the tag and hang it on your Christmas tree for decoration!  On the back of the tag I have written Reflections of 2012 – this way you can write down all the fun things that happened all year and then when you pull it out to decorate the tree next year – it’s like a little mini time capsule!

AND if that’s not enough – I have created a card with the Name Place ‘Plate’ when you are finished with it! Waste not want not I always say!
How simple is that!!

So head on over to Colorful Creations and get a head start on those Christmas decos!
