more good gifts

Hope you're all hangin' in there this holiday season! Does it seem like time is flying by this last couple weeks? I feel rushed to bake cookies, wrap gifts, decorate, buy last minute presents and go to various festive functions. But I am also trying to keep up with my own December album and make a few handmade holiday cards, and I am excited to finish a couple other quick craft projects I've started. What about you? Is there anything special you can share with us?
Speaking of special, look at Team B's layouts. I think you'll love them as much as I do. Keeping with the "best gift ever" theme, they did a bang-up job!
Fantsastic, right? Please remember to upload your layouts here!!!

The best gift...

Happy Holidays!!  Are you all baking, shopping and crafting your hearts out? We've seen so many lovely and inspiring holiday ideas across the Internet ( hello Pinterest, I see you.) and in magazines. There are SO many awesome ideas to steal, I have been racking my brain how I could incorporate some of them in my holiday home decor.  If any of you have anything fun and festive to share, please leave a comment here, we'd love to take a peek!

In a few days we will announce the winner of November's challenge, and one lucky person will get a package of Amy Tangerine's fabulous washi tape!  So come check back!

And now, to announce one of our newest lovely team designers, the uber talented Alexandra. She has a gorgeous, fun style and we are so excited she's decided to join us here!  She's a Franco-American Chicago-ite, crafty mama and wife and she has a blog here, please stop by and say hi.   She'll be revealing her rad layout here with mid-month's team B, please come see.  We will also be announcing a couple other talented people joining us, whoop, so much to celebrate!

We are so excited to share this month's craftiness with you!  The prompt this month, keeping with the holiday spirit, is "the best gift ever..."  Is it those Manolo Blahnik's on sale?  The vacation cruise with your Honey?  That beautiful ring you'd been eyeing for ages?  Or something more sentimental like time with family, a poem written just for you, a surprise visit from a childhood friend?

Here's what Team A came up with...



Please play along with us, tell our your best gift ever!!!  Remember to leave a a comment here, but also PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE upload your project here in our Flickr group!   Happy holidays!!
