Another week closer to Christmas

We had a lovely Thanksgiving with hubby's family and I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving as well. However, Thanksgiving weekend did not equal scrapping time. I'm not sure why but every time I thought I could sit down and scrap 5 minutes later I was interepted for one reason or another so this first layout was sitting on my table for days just waiting for me to get a chance to actually scrap. Memorable Seasons has a great sketch this month from the Nov happy hour sketch, but you have til the end of the month to complete it and be eligible for a prize.
Earlier in the week I was interested in scrapping these photos and I couldn't find where I had put them, luckily when I saw this sketch I knew it would work with these pics. Glad I found them!
I pulled out Best Creations travel collection and then added Making Memories Passport collection papers and Rubons from October Afternoon Boarding Pass and the sticker is from Crate Paper.

I saw this sketch from Creative Scrappers Sketch #183 and it was the perfect starting point. These photos are from Disney's Lion King show in the Animal Kingdom park. I had no idea what papers I wanted to use and ended up choosing a number of old supplies that I have had for ages!!! The base paper is from Stemma and was a halloween paper, the cardstock block I embossed with a cuttlebug folder and the script paper behind that is from Bo Bunny's Cambridge collection. The strip under the photos was in my scrap pile and its from ages ago its DCWV, the black scallops was a scrap from a Pink Paislee die cut piece. The only thing that is not ancient on this layout is the Foam Thickers that matched so perfectly and the buttons are from Graphic 45, and they are the only Graphic 45 items that I own. I also inked and distressed all the papers.

I received another great prize over the Thanksgiving weekend. This prize was from the Scrapping Nook in Sept and Oct they had a Bo Bunny contest and I WON. This prize is soooo fun, look at all these wonderful goodies. I received this adorable apron, the measuring cups and spoons, spatula, the nice reusable bag, the leather purse plus of course actually scrappy products too. The Bo Bunny Sweet Tooth Collection pack and matching chipboard plus a number of other goodies too. I love Bo Bunny products but somehow I don't have any of these goodies so that's a great bonus.
