Twas the night before Christmas :)

Hi everyone! :)

I wanted to share a few layouts I made today, two of which I am entering in the latest City Crafter Challenge which was to use a vintage boy and/or girl on your project :)


 

 


This next one is also for the City Crafter challenge :)

 






And this one was a 'just because' layout :)







Lots and lots of goodies on these -- Basic Grey, Crate, American Crafts, Pink Paislee, Little Yellow Bicycle, Simple Stories -- some from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com -- some RAK'S from Melinda and Debbie :)


Also today I wanted to share 14 Valentine's Day cards I made for Winter's "Cards from the Heart Card Drive"!!!  Winter sends these cards to Children's hospitals for the kids to have Valentine's :)


See her post linked above to learn more about it :)









Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
