Christmas fun and lovely news

Good morning Friends! I have been playing along with the My Scraps And More 12 days of Christmas challenge. Audrey came up with fun prompts for a total of 12days, such a fun way to scrap the holidays. I want to share two fun layouts I made from these prompts.
The prompt was to use a grey background. I have been waiting for the perfect project to use up the Pink Paislee Die Cuts I got a few weeks back, They were great for this layout. Last year we tried to get a photo of the girls and Chester Blu, but like a typical shoot with small ones, each photo had one looking off. This year Chester was the most difficult to keep still, but we FINALY got one, and crazy Little A had to make a face. I love the perfect capture of the attempt at a nice photo almost as much as it would have felt to get the perfect photo!
The other layout I made with a recipe prompt of using triangles, stars and numbers. My stars are a bit hidden, and I always add my date, so BAM, challenge met!
I love working with patterned paper in unique ways. I had this paper from my stash that had a chevron pattern that I chose to fussy cut and fold down, backing with glitter paper. Nothing screams "the magical feel of Christmas" like glitter papers!!

And speaking of My Scraps And More, I was asked to join the team for the upcoming year, starting in January. I came across the forum when directed on facebook to a recent  pinterest crop, and fell in love with the group. Seriously, if you are looking for a genuine, sweet place to mingle and play, this is it!!
I hope everyone has a great end to their week and nobody is too stressed with the shortening time before Christmas day!!
