http://52cct.blogspot.com.au . I used a light green cardstock with the poles and lamp cut from an old Sizzex 12" die "Flagpole with Lantern" I used black glitter paper to cut these our with a left over yellow piece of cardstock for the centre of the lantern. I used green sparkle cardstock for the pine leaves and the Merry Christmas sentiment, and I drew a faux stitching around with a white gellypen from Sakura. Hope you all like it.

http://52cct.blogspot.com.au I used a deep purple cardstock and used a piece of Bo Bunny scrapbook paper for the Mistletoe, because I don't have a stamp or diecuts of a mistletoe, all the Christmas stamps and die cutters are all holly, so I am glad I found this paper for the challenge. I stamped and heat embossed the wine glass with Tim Holtz embossing ink and Zing white embossing powder, I like the plain look of this card, so I hope everyone else will too!!

http://52cct.blogspot.com.au I used a cream cardstock for the base and gold corrugated card and also a creamy paper which I embossed with Sizzex embossing folder "snow flurries", I cut the ice skates with Tim Holtz "Mini Soldier and Ice Skate" Movers and Shapers cutting die out of Silver card Stock even though it came out black with the scanner, they are silver, and white Pointsettias with gold centre,, from Mariannes creatables cutting die. I also took a photo with my camera and the skates came out brown and silver, it is a mystery how to get it right!!!

http://gloriadesignschallence.blogspot.com.au I used a piece of packaging for the background and tore off one layer so that the corrugated core could be seen, and then I painted it all with white gesso, and when that dried I added an old map of Australia that I found on the net a long time ago, thinking that I would use it eventually, and it suits this layout perfectly, I used a black arrow to show where the family is on the map. I shaded the edges with "Vintage Photo" ranger ink pad, and used a little cut out that has also been in my stash for ages "our story" on the top left hand corner, a doily from the IGA supermarket for underneath the photo, also shaded with the Vintage Photo ink pad, I used a magnetic image from a TIm Holtz stamp set, "the Journey", this is also an old set. The piece of photo negative is also quite old and is my last piece from a gift from my friend Meg, I used greenery from Cheery Lynn dies and for the flowers, small ones punched from left over Graphic 45 paper, with liquid Perfect Pearls for the centres, the metal gears I got from China, and the small caravan and campervan are from a Quickutz cutting die, and the numbers are from an old Cuttlebug lettering die set "Typewriter", the paperclip on the right hand side is an old office paper clip with a Tim Holtz piece with a bead wrapped around it in the manner of a buoy that holds crab pots etc in place, I could find my jump rings so attached it to the top part with an old brass safety pin.
