"Eton Hotel" LO for Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #95: Bundle Up for Winter

Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #95 is "Bundle Up for Winter".  You could submit any project as long as it fits the challenge theme.  Winner to be drawn randomly with sponsor prize of 3 images from Wax Fruit Tues, Dec. 6, 2011 at US timezone.  Participants have until Sun., Dec. 4, 2011 to link their entries at the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog.

This must be the last LO I'll make with Nikki Sivils' Something for Everyone paper line for I've used up all the 12x12s in the collection kit.  It's a fairly simple LO.  I have to admit I wasn't able to wait for the images from the sponsor and was in a haste in finishing the layout.  It's a fairly simple layout with emphasis on the big photo.  I would have added more details had it not for the busy schedule I've been having for weeks.  And I think, I'll still be busy in the remaining week of the year 2011 due to family matters. 

Without further ado, here's my LO entitled: "Eton Hotel".  This was taken at the hotel lobby on our departure from Shanghai going back to Manila.  By the time we were leaving China, winter was already upon us, thus, I considered the photo apt for Kaboodle Doodles' challenge theme which is "Bundle Up For Winter".

Here's hoping for an enjoyable Christmas Season up ahead . . .!

"White" Card for CropStop Challenge #46: White as Snow Card

It's the 3rd challenge for the month of November at CropStop.  This week's Challenge #46 is "Create a White as Snow Card".  It's your chance to win a $15 gift certificate from CropStop's online store.  Come and join us!


It's my month's off at CropStop, but I'm submitting a project for this challenge.  It was hard for me to create a predominantly white card.  I found myself sinfully adding embellishments of pink colors with an idea of coming up with a sunny glistening frosty image.  At the back of mind, I'm thinking that I should have added touches of glitter on my pink flowers.  Anyway without further ado, here's my "White" Card:

"White" Card's FRONT
"White" Card's INSIDE

SUPPLIES:  Cardstock: Papermania, Flower: All About Scrapbooking, Gemstones: UBL, Thread: DMC, Other: Ribbon, TOOLS: SewEasy Hearts: We R Memory Keepers.

"Thanksgiving" LO for Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #94

Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #94 is "Thanksgiving".  You could submit any project as long as it fits the challenge theme.  Winner to be drawn randomly with sponsor prize of images from A Day of Daisies Tues, Nov. 22, 2011 at US timezone.  Participants have until Sun., Nov. 20, 2011 to link their entries at the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog.

I've been dilly dallying on what to submit for this challenge, as we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in our country.  Although, we occasionally celebrate milestones or accomplishments by having our own thanksgiving meal with loved ones with whom we wish to share our own triumphs and joys.  Thus,  my submission below is a double pager with my young sis celebrating with the family her accomplishment in her career.  I'd say it was a feast that the family had.  Congrats young sis on that well-deserved triumph!!



Inspiration Sketch

SUPPLIES: Paper: Echo Park, All About Scrapbooking (Hallmark Inc.), Alphabet Stickers: Doodlebug, Buttons: All About Scrapbooking (Hallmark Inc.), Sketch: Sketch Inspiration,  TOOLS: Border Punch: Martha Stewart.
