Meelleek , You have love in the gallery. I love what you have done with your December album. BTW, when is your anniversary. Ours is Dec 20. Beautiful anniversary page.
Thanks so much! We got married at midnight on New Years Eve so technically our anniversary is 1/1/13. I made that page as the final one for my December album. I had to have my daughter snap a picture of us yesterday so I could get it finished up!
elaynef, these pages are wonderful. I know how much fun you had with the grandchildren and it shows in the photos that they were having a ball. I love the grid design and the vellum with camera beneath. The name pages are wonderful. I love the photos of the boys having fun together. Love the little tree on the name page. Great job.
Awesome New Years’ cards, Linda! I especially like the ones with the masks.
Your pages are beautiful, elaynef. Those kids look like they were having a blast. I love your use of colour: the blues perfectly echo the water and the boys’ clothing and the reds and oranges add a dynamic quality to your pages.
Happy anniversary, Meelleek! Loved the DD pages in the Gallery.
I have to explain this page. For the last few years I have been working on writing snippets of my life for The History Project class I took years ago. In Nov each year my DGD writes a novel for Nanowrimo and I write on my history and we encourage each other. This year she was too busy with school to do it, so I didn't either. I am hoping to get a few done in the next couple of months.
For this LO I used the 'Blended Autumn Days' template by Miss Fish, elements from the 'Summer Nights' kit by Cathy K Designs, paper from the 'Summer Skies' kit by Kimeric Kreations. I was very excited when I found the paper and the flair that matches the sunset almost exactly!
Points: 1 for the LO, 1 for sharing, #15 Dots, #21 Sparkle, #23 Manufacturer mix-up (3 designers), #25 pre-made words (Summer Nights title), #26 Photo Crazy - blended photo, #31 Multi Photo, #34 Sexy Hexy, #37 Journalers Badge, #45 Tie One On - string, #51 Mix It Up - inked edges TOTAL = 12 points
Three pages finished so far. I shared these first two in the January Bonus challenge thread, b/c they each have buttons (my chosen stash to bust this month). Am sharing them here as well and will list the challenges and add up the points here: January '20 by Gramma Dee, on Flickr
Points for this one: One page created & shared (2). Bonus (buttons) (1). Stash challenge (specialty paper, handwriting, and doily) (1). #1 (1). #3 rectangular photo (1). #4 Square page (1). #8 two generations (1). #19 (a museum) (1). #21 sparkle letters (1). #23 three manufacturers (1). #39 first page in my 2020 calendar (1). #45 twine (1). #57 bow (1). 14 points.
I am done with my Christmas album and in typical fashion the very last thing I made was the cover. Tomorrow I'll unpack my kit and put everything away/toss the bits I'm not keeping then I'm finally ready to move onto other scrappy things.

linda - gorgeous colours on your cards! I especially love the glasses, very chic...very new years...although I'm not sure why! And yes, curry is amazing...I'm disappointed you didn't share the recipe AussieMeg - stunning, wow, those colours! elaynef - great job with all those photos/memories. I love the slight angle on the top photo, to keep it from feeling all too square! nylene - I love love the story. Growing up, we too saved wrapping paper, and we still do keep big pieces although I don't iron, I just cut off taped edges I do it from a recycling point of view now; it makes my toes curl with the waste! Gorgeous design and colours too. Chinagirl828 - your DD is beautiful (everyone should go look at the pages in the DD thread!), reflects your regular style, and is done. I love the title. WTG! grammadee - 3 really lovely holiday layouts. I love your layers and textures. I love how these 3 layouts are all holiday but completely different colours! Great cluster
I myself am a little anxious about my productivity this month. I have 2 christmas gifts to finish before I can start my own creating, and I'm going slow on them because I'm bored! But I can't put them aside either - they need to be done.
This is a LO I did for challenge #1 Happy New Year.
