  1. 🎄 Continuing in the spirit of the season this week we’re scrapping Christmas trees 🎄🎄. Is your Christmas tree already up, let us see! If your tree isn’t up yet, maybe you have a favorite photo of another year’s tree. Or maybe a special Christmas tree tradition. And if you don’t put up a Christmas tree you might show us your favorite ornament or even do a photo-less layout and journal a Christmas Tree story. When you are finished, please post your layout in the Tuesday Challenge Gallery for all of us to see. I can’t wait to see what you create! Don’t forget to post a link back here in this thread and remember to credit your layout supplies to be eligible for the Weekly Layout and Weekly Challenge prizes. Every Tuesday and Saturday in December, a new Holiday challenge will be posted in our Forum. Everyone who participates in that challenge will have a chance to win a $5 gift certificate (GC); participate in all six challenges throughout December and you'll be automatically entered in the drawing for a $20 GC. Merry Christmas to YOU! Your 6 layouts must be posted by December 28th. Here’s my layout: Kindergaren Tree Drawing
  2. My Christmas tree is normally not up until closer to the Holiday so I went in a different direction for this challenge. My Mom had saved this drawing I made in Kindergarten. It was stapled to another drawing to make an “envelope” and apparently a gift for my Dad as she noted on the paper. Jody drew that Santa for me a few years ago. For this layout I used: SG Christmas Morning Kit 2 SNU SS Styles: All Lit Up MRE SS Emb Temp Stitched Frames BMU SS Paper Templates: Edgers Biggie SNU SS Styles Shadow Me Jody West - Santa

    This is such a pretty page and I really like the background you chose and your Christmas cluser is so festive. I really liked looking through your photos and reading your journaling.

    2018 cookie swap_cheese star biscuits

    I remember you talking about making them and they sounded so good so I am happy to have the recipe! I love cheese and the biscuits look so pretty cut into star shapes. I just might have to leave out the cayenne since I don’t do well with spicy things. I love your card, Jane - it’s so pretty!
  16. My friend Terry makes these and they are SO yummy, I love them! She usually makes two batches, so do I. This is one of the 3 recipes I sent into the swap. For this recipe card I used: JCO Jif Plus Santa’s Sleigh SNU SS Styles Shadow Me KMC Christmas Party Special

    weekend wildcard_weather

    I like your poem but I DON’T like that weather! It seems there is rain, rain, rain all around; here too it has continued from summer and seeing sun is a rarity. Your page is really beautiful Jane with lots of special touches, it almost makes rain look pretty!
