Ah Monday, my childless day. It's so lovely to have a day to yourself to do the things you enjoy doing without little hands trying to "help". So nice, and then so nice to have them back again this afternoon :)

Today is the last day to get your entries in for the CC at CIS. Have a go at my sketch challenge and all the other challenges the girls put up.

Next weekend, from 19 December till 22 December, we'll be having a Chrissy inspired CC at Scrapboutique. I'll put up a thread very soon where I'll be asking for 3 ingredients for the Sunday Roast...

Last night I put up the last sketch for the Christmas Album that was part of our Christmas workshops at ScrapBoutique. It was full on but so much fun!!

I took this photo last weekend. It wasn't easy getting them all to smile and look at the camera at the same time. This one was the nicest one, I think it's very cute so I've turned it into our Christmas card for this year. :) I also used the photo to show case some of the gorgeous K&CO Christmas papers for ScrapBoutique. The papers are so yummy, lovely glitters and shiny bits and the corrugated card is so so nice!! All the Chrissy papers are on special so go and get yourself a bargain.
