Tis the season to be Merry & Giving

Hi all! I am back with my second LO after an over two month scrapbooking hiatus...hope I can keep it going. I know Christmas is over but I did not complete any during my hiatus and this will be the one and only for the season. We were at the mall and my son donated a new bear for the children in the hospital. 

I really wanted to complete the last couple of challenges at Creative Scrappers because, sadly, they will be the last. It is one of the first scrapbooking challenge blogs I 'stalked' and played along with before I started my blog. Kristine Davidson gathered some of the most inspirational scrappers/sketch designers through the years with versatile styles and I will miss seeing the reveals. Anyways, this LO is based on sketch #285. 

I also played along with Scrap Our Stash challenge #22. You have to include an item from your stash for each letter in the word T-W-I-N-E. I used twine, of course, for the T. Wood embellishments for the W. I inked the edges of the papers to make them pop a bit for the letter I. The naughty and nice stickers are for the N (naughty crossed out for being so nice to donate). And lastly, enamel dots for the E. I love their stash challenges, so fun. 

Thanks so much for looking!!
