The List, SOUS 12-24-2010

Well, can you believe it?! December 24th! Christmas is nearly here! And after that,  the beginning of another new year!  So, while many of you are busy for the next few days and maybe having a family vacation after that, Stuck on U Sketches is having our last reveal and challenge for 2010.

Our sketch today is done by the lovely "Charlotte" aka Suepup.  I have been saving this sketch since last year and am so glad to finally get a chance to use it! You can visit Charlotte's blog Here
This is a look at her gorgeous sketch:

Gorgeous, huh?

Okay, so my favorite part of this page is this cute photo of my dd Danielle posing for me while we were shopping on our annual Girl's Shopping Day with her sisters.  She is so patient (usually) to give me my much needed photo ops!  But here you can also see the crochet doily that I used. Picked it up at JoAnn's .. love those things!

My papers are a mix of Bo Bunny Noel and My Minds Eye Holly Jolly.  I love to layer pp so this was lots of fun. And of course, I really love using my Zutter Distress it all to distress my edges.  Those evergreen leaves you see are from a garland that I picked up at Michaels a few weeks ago. I thought they would look great on some packages or a scrapbook page ... I've done both and still have lots of it left.

The gorgeous velvet Poinsettias are Petaloo and came from Floren's store. She was so good to tell me the minute she loaded them so that I could snap them up quick!  

The round chipboard piece is from the Bo Bunny Noel collection and is also from Generations Crafting.

Almost forgot to mention the matching ribbon from the Bo Bunny Noel collection.  The berries and pearls are from my stash. Sorry for the shadows but there is so much dimension on this page that it was hard to not have shadows somewhere.  I have a great place in my sunroom to take photos but right now there is a humongous Christmas tree occupying that spot, so I've had to make-do in other locations.

Here I've used a diecut from Creative Imaginations IOD Night Divine. 

Just a last look at those scrumptious Christmas papers! I am such a sucker for Christmas paper.  Not even gonna tell you how many collections I have for this year!

That just about wraps it up for today! Hope you will find time to visit us at Stuck on u Sketches  and play along this time. You will have 2 weeks to upload your layouts.

I want to wish you all a wonderful holiday season!
