Creeping Christmaswards....

Agggghhhhh October happened and with it's arrival came the realisation that Christmas isn't actually so far away - especially if you've only made a grand total of 3 Christmas cards and you also intend to make at least some of the presents you want to give.

Anyway, one of the gifts is the Baby scrapbook - my first foray into scrapbooking. So far there are only two pages in it - I've shown both on my blog. Two pages does not a scrapbook make, does it?

So I've spent the better part of the last couple of days on my first double page jobbie. Not sure I've managed to do as I'd pictured in my head, but never mind eh?

The first page uses a lovely printed cardstock, the second uses the same design but the vellum version, I decided to tear strips and place them on plain cardstock, then I used a small piece of the vellum over the same words at the bottom of the other page to bring the two together. The little "booklet" on the right opens to reveal a concertina of paper with journalling about the pictures and how Sam resembles his older relatives in some of his expressions.

Right, my next task is my own 10 Card Challenge on CBC- the challenge is to make one Christmas card from each of the 10 templates that we've had so far. Doesn't seem quite right to set a challenge then be so lax in rising to it, does it. Gosh, I do guilt so well.

I'll get back to you with the pics if I manage to complete the 10.

There's a little bit of webworld whispering going on, something's afoot and you need to keep coming back or you might miss something exciting.....

You can run, but it will catch you. You can hide but it will seek you out. You can cover your ears, shut your eyes and sing la la la but it will come up behind you and poke you with a sharp stick....
