Believe - December SwirlyHues

Hello Everyone,
I'm still working on my 2012 goals, and couple of my goals were to get caught up on my 2011 scrapbooking, and try new techniques. So, I spent today working on a layout for the December SwirlyHues Challenge at the Swirlydoos Blog.   This is a color and sketch challenge, and we have to use one of the technique tutorials on the site. I used the Paper Distressing tutorial found here.

 This challenge gave the opportunity to do a layout of my son's picture with Santa that was taken at school. So one layout down, and at least 10 more to go.

Here are the colors.

And here's the sketch.

I created the background  paper with a large jewel stamp by Stampendous, and then distressing the paper with Tim Holtz Distressing ink pad. All the papers were distressed with a pair of scissors. I made the poinsettias, trees and swirls with dies by Spellbinders.

Thank you for stopping by today. I'll see you again really soon, I'm hoping to get some more crafting done this week.

Have a fabulous day, and blog with you later.

My 2011 Goals Journal with Glass Flowers

Happy New Year Everyone,

Today I have a different type of project for you. Some of the ladies and I over at the Swirlydoos  site decided to create Journal to keep track of the goals we set this year. So I created this "Goals Journal" to track my progress.
