Christmas is coming

Its Friday and that means I should be posting this week's latest pages. Mercifully, its been a somewhat slow week. The holidays are busy for both designers and CT members so I haven't minded the slower pace this past week. That being said, I still have not started my Christmas shopping. What in the world is wrong with me?!

A few weeks ago I posted an "In search of" thread at one of the larger digi sites. I really wanted some wintry frosted leaves. One of the replies I got was from TDC's very own Jennifer Labre telling me she would have some for me the next week. Well, she didn't disappoint, and she put them in a gorgeous purple and plum kit to boot! Purple is one of my all-time favorite colors and this kit does not disappoint! I absolutely love the variety of leaves, branches and flowers she has in here too. My daughter was very obliging one morning before school, she let me snap five pictures of her out in our tiny garden. Thankfully 4 out of them turned out pretty good.

I also got a very pleasant surprise from this little mini kit by Studio Gypsy. She calls it a mini, but there are still ample papers and elements to make some seriously gorgeous pages.

I made a few more hybrid Christmas tags, this time with Studio Gypsy's adorable vintage Christmas tags.

And finally, a layout I made a few weeks ago for the December 9th "Play it Again" feature on The DailyDigi blog.
