Sunday Scrappin'

We'd love more people to join us for Sunday Scrappin'! If you do any sort of scrapbooking or paper crafting, come on over!
My Ta-Da's this week include the following:
My first ever handmade Christmas card. Not happy with how the paper turned out after inking. I like the stocking okay. I made my own pattern and cut it out then stickled the edges of the white part. You can't tell in the picture, but the white paper is textured. I stamped a sentiment on the inside. It's too plain. Still thinking about how to go about my next attempt.

Next is a "to/from" tag for Christmas. Very simple. Just a stamp, some ribbon, and a cute penguin cut out.

I made a two page Halloween layout (not from this year's festivities). I used the fuzzy papers for photo mounting and embellishments that I recieved in a goody package from Stamps, Scraps and More. The paper is from my stash.
And I used Smilebox to make two digital pages, one of my son playing baseball and the other of my daughter at her recent band concert.

My To-Do's"
Check out the challenges and sketches at Sunday Scrappin', 52 Sketches, DRS Designs, Dreamgirls, Pagemaps, Stamps, Scraps & More, Papertake Weekly, and Friday Sketchers. I won't do them all, but I will get ideas. I wish I could create like those professionals!
I hope I get at least four pages done this week. I need to print some digital pages, too. And I'd like to try another tag and Christmas card.
The Sunday Scrappin' challenge last week was to use ribbon. I used some red ribbon on my tag. This week's challenge (and I read this AFTER I wrote the post) is to use a sketch found online to complete a layout or a card. Amy has a few links up at the SS site to help us out. Happy scrappin'!

P. S. Day 2 of NaBloPoMo!
