I can't believe I just said that!!!!!! I don't really want Christmas to come quickly however after having to head back to work this week I realised that Christmas is really not that far away!!!! Time will fly as it always does when you are with children!

Have Jo and the DT girls got you thinking and creating yet for our Christmas in July challenge? I know when I received my pack in the post from Jo I really had to start thinking!

Besides the fact that I had to think about Christmas so early......I also had to think NON TRADITIONAL and use Monica's gorgeous sketch! Hmmmm....great challenge!

Here is my layout......

I was so very lucky to receive the brand new Kaisercraft 'Little Toot' collection to create with.....if you love it - why not grab it from here?

I turned the sketch one rotation.....which was perfect for my landscape photo.

This photo was taken on Brayden's very first Christmas Day.....he was absolutely spoilt rotten! I often find titles hard to come up with but after a little brainstorming...I got there! I didn't want to state the obvious....Spoilt Rotten or First Christmas....I wanted something different! Song Titles/Lyrics are great as titles.....all I did was changed one word!

Here are a few close up shots.....

Materials: Kaisercraft ‘Little Toot’ Collection - Sticker Sheet - Die cut Sheet, Bling, white Bazzill cardstock, Tattered Angels - Glimmermist: Denim, Versa Mark Ink - Pinecone.

I have also created a set of three cards. What makes them a set you might say?

Well I again used Kaisercraft’s Little Toot Collection…...and they are a little bit more interactive than some you may have received over the years! I wanted something different and maybe something that would interest the little ones out there:)

1. Fancy Trifold Card - Hey Santa! Please Stop Here!

2. A Present card - A Gift For You!

and it even opens up!

Finally a Double Easel card!

I think that is all for now….I have several other projects to share with you…..but some of them I can't and I think this post has been long enough!
