Busy day on my blog...

Today is the newest sketch for Merry Monday!


Check out this week's sketch:


Here's how I was inspired:


I don't have a whole lot of holiday paper.  All but the large green polka paper is from October Afternoon's Woodland Park collection.  The die cut and the green polka are Making Memories....yup, I just had to add the wooden embellie and layer a SRM sentiment!

How about you...do you have tons of holiday collections or do you tend to work with what you have?

I love the smidge of pink! This is perfectly fun :)
I have tons of Christmas paper, and I am constantly using Christmas for 'every day' and vice versa. I just like making it work for things other than it's meant for.
