May your Holiday Sparkle and shine #2

 Hi Everyone!
Hope you are planning for your weekend! We are getting out of town and enjoying the Northwest food and wine festival - can't wait :)
I wanted to share a card that was inspired by my pal JESSICA love her creativity:) She recently posted this beauty HERE and I was so inspired by the colors.  So I had to whip something up and join the challenge.
This week the challenge over at The Kraft Journal is:
Use Any Sketch so I picked an old fav of mine. I already made one card with this sketch but I really LOVE the sketch. I didn't add one of the elements as I just wanted to have the ornaments be the focal :)

Fall Family Layout

Hi Everyone!
How are you? I have been so busy working ughhhh. I had some time late late last night to create a little something that I never make.  A teeny tiny layout :) I really wanted to join some of the AWESOME challenges going on so I created this for quite a few of my favorites.
That's us! My little family :) Every Fall we take our family photo and use it for our Christmas card.  This year I thought... you know I'm going to make a scrapbook of the past years so I started with last years.

I started by using the photo/color inspiration 

Next my layout was based on Family and in the October SKOTM PKSC-22 was the perfect stamp!

Paper - My Minds Eye
The flag die is from Lil inker designs
Label Die - MCT - Curly Label Die
Leaves - Piles of smiles
