Holidaze...

It's crazy around these parts! Last Sunday was J's birthday, so we are currently STILL celebrating and will continue to through the weekend! With that, getting ready for normal holiday festivities around the house and all that goes on at school during these couple of weeks, I'm desperately in need of a vacation! It will be very awesome to spend time with the family and just relax (and of course try to squeeze in as much crafty time as possible!) so I'm also praying for a healthy break!

It's also reveal day at Sketchabilities! This was another awesome sketch, and the timing was perfect to be able to use my new kit from PersonalScrapper! When I saw all those yummy buttons, I just knew what I wanted to do for that tree!

Here's Karan's sketch...
And my take...

patterned paper-Fancy Pants Traditions; cardstock - American Crafts; flowers, buttons and brads - 7 Gypsies/American Crafts; alphas - American Crafts, Paper Trunk


I had quite a bit of fun with this one! It's really making me extra excited to spend some uninterrupted time scrapping! Wish me luck making it through 2 more days of work (yeah, I know, totally shouldn't be complaining!) 

~Til next time
