Taking a Twist on Challenges

I decided that I wanted to take a twist on this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches and I wanted to join this week's There She Goes #34 - Baby It's Cold Outside! Challenge - along with a twist too.

Melissa and I were talking and I was going on about Jessica's Stampbook Saturday and how I was making two amazing 12x12 layouts of me. I told Miss I didn't want to make a card-I had spent the week making stockings for my students and just couldn't muster up another "holiday" card. As I was reading the There She Goes challenge I decided to make TMS a scrapbook layout and use it for my submission to TSG. I love the idea around TSG's Stampbook Saturday since many of my 12x12 layouts I use my stamps - it adds such a unique touch and doesn't make the album thick.

Of course as I got into creating, I ended up making two layouts - one 6x6 and one 8x8. I love them both! They follow the theme of the sketch and I hope that I meet the challenge for TSG. Their challenge was to create a non-holiday winter card - I know it's not a card, but the 6x6 could be a large post card!

Well, either way I love the layouts and I hope you do too. The children are my neice and nephew out playing with their Anky Karin in the 2005 winter blizzard in West Virginia.

I think they'll fit TSG's challenge - they're too perfect not too! They layouts are wonderful and so are those absolutely adorable children. Ahem.

Great job on the challenge Theresa.

Awesome layouts, Theresa, and they are even better with those adorable faces -- what cuties! It definitely looks like they are enjoying the snow!!

Now if only I could catch up on our scrapbooks....

Have a very merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
