Bellaidea's page 'Letters To Santa' was the winning entry in this fortnight's 'Celebration' Challenge. The idea was the show us how you celebrate Christmas... either using the word 'celebrate' in your page, or documenting your celebrations, or just turning your page into one big celebration!! lol
I love Bellaidea's misting, colours and the overall dreaminess of this page.

It is my turn to set the fortnightly challenge at The Boxx and how could I ignore Christmas? I know it is a busy time for all of us, so I have made it pretty simple. The theme is 'Celebration', so I'd like you to feature one way in which you celebrate Christmas. For me, whenever we spend Christmas Day with my family, we start the day with champaign! Yep, it feels terribly wicked and indulgent.... but I just love it nontheless! :)
I hope you will join in with my challenge this month. Just pop over to the Boxx and upload to the challenge thread in the forum to be in the running to win a $10 voucher in the Boxx Shop.
Cheers for now,

first up.. "Lifes Dreams"
and then some closies.......
some simple punched butterflies ... made from the pattern paper that i used for the border strip...
so thats me signing off for another day...
The lovely Helen Wallace is our Featured Member this month, and was lovely enough to provide both the sketch and the inspiration layout for us. I'm sure you will all enjoy the benefits of her hard work and will agree with me when I say that it most definitely paid off!!
The deadline this month is midnight on Saturday 31st December, so don't miss an opportunity to get your entry featured in the gallery for the month of January! Just upload your layout into the Sketch thread in the Boxx forum.
The lovely Wendy Kaye was charged with the difficult task of selecting a winner this month. Whilst it was not an easy decision, Wendy says she kept coming back to the same layout every time. Understandably too!
Congratulations Janice Nicholls on this fabulous page, which will be featured in the main gallery for the month of December.
Stay tuned for the next sketch challenge.

I had the great pleasure of the uplift challenge this month and I picked not ONE but TWO layouts by the incredibly talented HEATHER JACOB
I have been awe inspired by her work ever since she joined the BOXX just recently and I just love the clean lines and small details in her layouts - oh well I really just love them all to be honest.
Here are the 2 layouts of Heather's that are my absolute favourites -
So........Since christmas is upon us I chose to go with the festive theme.
The following products that I have used can all be purchased at the BOXX shop
- LILYBEE Designs Christmas range
- MANOR HOUSE Creations incredibly gorgeous flowers
- KAISER Sparklets and
- AMERICAN CRAFT Thickers
And here are my uplifts -
For close ups you can visit my blog
Last but not least I did a few simple cards out of some of my leftovers -
I would like to wish you all a very merry christmas and may your mojo follow you all to 2012
Be merry but stay safe

The Next Book of You installment is all about....
The kits are out and, for those of you who have them and are keen to get busy, the instructions are now available to all kit subscribers in the Book of You Kit Group at The Boxx. A lovely blend of 7Gypsies Off the Wall, Basic Grey Out of Print and Bo Bunny Forever Fall papers, not to mention the AWESOME Prima resist canvas shapes. The 7Gypsies Rubbings, Pyramid Brads and Carolee Creations alpha stickers finish this kit off just nicely.
I tried to look past the obvious things that would be common to all of us and really thought about the things that keep me going when everything around me seems to be falling apart. The things that make me realise that my problems are only fleeting and that there are so many more important things to focus on.
I believe wholeheartedly in the power of laughter. I laugh a lot... at almost anything! I think my children have inherited the giggles from me and their joy is most definitely music to my ears and one of the things that I could never live without.
Layout two is totally predictable, yet unavoidably true. It is all about the one person that I couldn’t do without. My best friend, my sounding board, my comforter.... my guy.
I am totally in love with the December kit and can’t wait to start playing with it!!
Cheers for now,

Michelle here with my first official DT post! Oh I hope I live up to the brief..... What is Hot Right Now in the Scrapping world????!!!!
Well after much research ie prowling the net....( under the guise of fulfilling obligations that's what I have been telling DH anyway!)
Art Journalling! I know it has been around forever but is making a big surge of late. Scrapbookers are tuning into this, I think, due to the fact that making our own backgrounds (another "in" thing) is totally hot and probably will be for a long time yet.
Art Journalling is a great opportunity to try out all those new techniques on a smaller scale. I have wanted to start one for years and have finally given it a go and I have to tell you, it is really fun to play and let the juices flow! You start with something then it turns into something completely different.
Keep Happy Everyone,
