Yellow is My Happy Color!

AAAH yellow - bright sunshine, happiness, Christmas. Christmas? Yes Christmas - I used the color combo #23 from SPCC to create a gift bag and cards for a Christmas gift. Here is the color combo -
Not exactly the traditional colors of Christmas but I found in my very large stash of past Christmas paper a cute Santa on the roof top paper that was the not quite navy and a coordinating stripe that was all the colors of the combo. I also made some cards and I plan to do a Christmas planner but haven't quite figured out the plan on that one. The cards, tags made from scraps, and the Christmas planner will all go in the bag for an early Christmas gift for someone (maybe a door prize at a baby shower I am hosting at the beginning of December).

Continuing on the yellow theme I made a super happy layout of my dad - Grandpa Phil according to Amory and Phil is pronounced Feel with the appropriate southern twang - and the girls. The three pictures are all about just getting a picture of the three of them. In the first Amory is combing Grandpa's hair so he looks "pretty" - Dad just looks terrified! The next pic Amory has fallen down behind Grandpa and then finally a picture of all three.

This is a sketch by Julie Bonner (of 52 Sketches 52 Weeks fame) that is featured on the Magpie Club blog. She has a super cute kit club with prices at both ends of the spectrum! My end would be the credit crunch kit for $12.50! So here is the LO -

Another layout to show you simply because I can! Insert evil giggle here! I have been participating in the Use Your Stash Challenge hosted by My Sketch World and Dixie Pieces so I have been racking up the points by finishing up my Halloween layouts! Here are a few -
