#61 Winner!

And the best tags were...okay. I admit it. I loved ALL the tags submitted this week. I could not choose on merit, so I had to go the random route, and JudyGal is the winner. Please email me your address ( and I'll send you a box of holiday goodness. And thanks to those who made such beautiful tags this week.

Challenge #62

In the spirit of the holidays, I challenge you to do a non-photo layout about "What's on your list". Most of us have a wishlist during the holidays, whether it's toys, a new tv, a diamond ring, or even something more of sentimental value. It can be your list, your childs list or even your spouses list. Also, let's use up some of those holiday embellishments & pattern papers that we've all been stocking up on and/or maybe even hoarding.

Have your layout or project posted here or to the link on 2 peas by Friday, December 14th, for a nice RAK that will be sent gift wrapped!!!

Post your layout on 2peas and link us to this thread here:

Have fun! Can't wait to see what you create!!!

#61: Ten tags.

So. I have piles of leftovers all over my desk. Not from Thanksgiving, but from various projects I've been working on. And I tend to toss them in some little bins I keep just for that purpose. And I really should try to use them up, don't you think? Well, the challenge this week is to make ten tags from leftovers. These tags can be for your holiday gifts or other gifts, or they can be made as journaling tags for future layouts. So get cracking! I made mine in about an hour, with breaks for phone calls, emails and a visit from a four-year-old vampire princess. You may be able to do yours faster in a less challenging environment. Good luck. And remember to link your creations here. I'll be picking a RAK winner next Friday.
