Hey everyone,
Now that the craziness of Christmas is over, I have had a little more time to scrap.  I received three DCWV Stacks as a present from my in-laws, so I decided to make a page with them.  While I had DCWV on the brain, I went over to their blog and saw their December Scrap-a-holic monthly layout challenge was still open and used their sketch from Sketch Savy.

The DCWV stacks I used are Mariposa, Premier Photo and Brights cardstock.  I picked up the large gold ribbon from the Dollar Tree and the three dimensional butterfly stickers from Momenta were also a Christmas gift.  The roses in the corner are from Prima and the vellum quote is from Quick Quotes.  The ribbon trim around the circle is from Prima or Websters (can't remember which).  The pretty pins attached to the large bow are from www.shoeboxmemoriesdluxe.etsy.com.

As I type this up, Lara is busy getting in trouble.  She "accidentally" hit Nicholas in the face...with Nicholas' punching glove.  Hmmm, I think I need to explain what accidentally means.  

Nicholas was also pretty funny today. There was an advertisement for the Dr. Phil show about the murder of Kaylee.  One of his guests mentions duct tape not being a normal thing for a parent to use on a kid's face.  Nicholas then randomly comments that you shouldn't put duct tape on kids' mouth b/c then they couldn't breathe.  Then he said, "I wouldn't even do that to you mom.  We don't have duct tape."   If that isn't love...

Okay, I am entering a "few" challenges with my layout:

DCWV - Stack-a-holic December template
Flutterby Wednesdays - anything goes (must use a butterfly, fairy, or angel)
Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings - anything goes with ribbon
Lil Red Wagon - something new (my paper)
The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - anything goes
The City Crafter - Make the Cut (I cut around the butterflies in the paper and slid the large blue circle into the slits)
Creative Inspirations - anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday - anything goes
For Fun Challenges - use something new (paper)

Have a wonderful day!

Love this last, the butterflies go so well with the "imagine" theme, and Lara looks so cute in both photos! We are having some problems with the things that happen "accidentally" in our house, too! ;)
