blue christmas...

Another fun challenge over at the jingle belles challenge site!

This week the guest designer is the wonderful June Houck of Simply Elegant Paper Crafts...

Use Blue as your Main Color

I especially love this challenge because I'm a huge fan of non-traditional holiday colors...


All my paper is MME...the bloom is from my bloggie friend Sherry!  The alpha is Sassafras...

Thanks for all the inspiration ladies...and make sure you check out today's blog candy that I have...it's especially with the Jingle Belles in mind:)

Pssttt...
