Admitting Defeat...

I have been so good about completing all of the challenges on Apron Strings Birthday Celebration. This week I must admit defeat for I only got three out of the five done. :( Although I did combine those challenges with challenges from other sites so at least I was multitasking!
The first layout was for Birthday Party Day #16 to add your scrapbook version of balloons by incorporating round items; at least two pieces must be larger than 3 inches. This layout, done with a sketch from Sketch Inspiration has plenty of circles. Four three inch ones and two that are smaller.
Santa Was Here
The next layout is of the girls on Christmas Eve in front of Grandma's tree. This one was for Birthday Party Day #17 to incorporate a box, or block, on your layout. This layout, made from a sketch found on ScrapFit contains a large block in the middle in which I placed the photos.
Santa Is On His Way!
This last layout is a "makes my heart feel good" layout. This is my dad patiently building a gingerbread house with my girls. Such a sweet memory. This one was for Birthday Party Day #15 to create a layout using at least three different patterned papers. Using a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays I used pieces and bits left from the October Afternoon Very Merry collection. It was one of my very favorites!
Building A Gingerbread Home For Christmas
 And last but not least a card - a rarity indeed! I do make them all the time I just rarely throw them up here! But here is a card that I made for Amory's little friend who is budding bug scientist! I used a sketch from Cardabilities and a challenge to used a stamped sentiment and scallops on a card from Paper Variety.

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Look at all that great work. Don't you just love cirlces on layouts, and I don't mean in the cut every photo and paper on the page kind of way. And I adore the OA Very Merry line and your use of it with your gingerbread photos. . .perfect! You may not have hit all the challenges this week, but you were a success nonetheless!
