Merry Christmas! (Pion Design/Green Tara)

A few little "Merry Christmas" tags I made with some of my Pion Design scraps from the Waiting for Santa 2 collection. I thought these would be cute for my boys this year. The beautiful red roses, white buds, silver stars and red bead string are all from Green Tara. Make sure you head on over to both of these manufacturer blogs and follow them. There are so many wonderful projects being presented by all of the talented ladies on these DT teams (especially this magical time of year). I am amazed at the creativity and can't wait to see what 2012 will bring!

Wising you a very Merry Christmas!

Adventure Layout (Pion Design/Green Tara)

I couldn't resist making this layout for a few reasons... TCR palette #89 was perfect for use with my brand new Pion Design "For Father" papers  - so I knew I had to squeeze some creating time into this busy week. It was also a really good excuse to use The Dusty Attic December sketch and some gorgeous Green Tara flowers. This layout just seemed to fall into place in no time at all!

This layout is of my sons during a camping trip in the mountains two years ago. I am fortunate that all 3 of my kids love the outdoors. There is a mix of Pion Design papers (For Father and Studio of Memories), Dusty Attic and Tattered Angels Chipboard, plus I've layered some gorgeous Green Tara flowers on here. Sometimes on a boy layout, a little "flowering" goes a long way. Here I have used two layers of the new Green Tara white petals and a cream cherry blossom to create each flower.

Here is the gorgeous TCR palette this week:

And here is the DA sketch this month:

Thanks so much for taking time out of one of your busiest weeks of the year to visit me today! BTW I will have the new DA releases in my Etsy shop mid to end of January :)
