Treasured Scrapbooking Reveals and ScrapFIT Workout #10

Hey guys! Can you believe it is the 15th???!!! Christmas will be here before we know it!!! Today I wanted to share my 15th reveals for Treasured Scrapbooking. First, here is my layout. Everything you see was pulled from the kit with the exception of the stitching and the buttons. This is Carter and Caressa on Christmas Eve 2007.


For my altered, I decided to create a paper topiary for Christmas. I have been wanting to do one of these for over a year and am so glad I finally got to. I followed directions I found on Splitcoast Stampers for the project. Here they are if you would like to make one of these also:

This was so fun to make!! I purchased the ceramic pot that this is sitting in from Michael's. It was 60% off and I got it for like $2!!! Whoo hoo! I added some spanish moss to cover up the foam. Then I pulled 2 pieces of paper from the kit at Treasured Scrapbooking. Accidentally, I ran out of paper with about 1/2" left on the styrofoam cone. So I trimmed it off, added some ribbon and red tinsel from the kit. Then to cover up the green styrofoam that you could see, I added some glue and sprinkled on some of the gold glitter that also came in the kit. Here is my paper topiary. I hope to make another of these soon!! So fun!

Next, we have a new a new challenge at ScrapFIT. Our sponsor this week is Cosmo Cricket. If you would like to play for the prize and to see the other DT's pages, go here...
For the challenge we have 2 requirements....one, you must use Cosmo Cricket in your layout. Second, you must choose a word that has something to do with Christmas and relate something in your layout to each letter in the word. For example, I used Cosmo Cricket patterned paper for this page. For my word, since He is the reason for the season, I chose the word 'Christ.' So in my layout I have:
C-Cosmo Cricket/Cutwork
H-Handstitching (I used a Bazzill In Stitchz template and stitched the flourish)
T-Torn Paper
This page is of my nephew Carter. He is out enjoying the breeze on a warm Spring day.
'They Call Me The Breeze'
Up close of the hand stitching and cutwork.
I just love this pic. He was outside playing by his playground and the breeze was just blowing his hair. He always loved the wind as a baby. He would giggle and grin everytime it blew.
Do come on over and join us for the challenge!!! We'd love to see what you can do too!
ALSO....ScrapFIT is looking for it's next DT!!! Why not tryout?!!! The search begins Wednesday, December 16th and will run through January 5th. Here is the link to the forum for all the details:
Good Luck to all who apply!!! Can't wait to see who the new team will be!!!

That's all from me today. I hope you all have a beautiful day and Happy Scrappin'! As always, thanks so much for stopping by!!!!! Merry Christmas!
