Walking in a Scrappy Wonderland...!

A couple of months ago, Linda (Bon Scrapatit) asked if I would be interested in joining a Christmas themed blog train with herself and Dawn (Snowsmoon's Design) and would Mel be interested in joining in too! Of course, Mel and I were very up for it and so the four of us joined together to ride the blog train! LOL! We all chose a swatch of 4 colours - everyone except me put together a bright palette - mine was a little more grungy! I had an inspirational moment and thought of the name "Walking in a Scrappy Wonderland"! And so, our creative juices started to flow and we decided to do a two part theme for you. Mel is in Durban, South Africa and Dawn is in Florida - they have done a tropical themed Christmas. Linda is in Northern California and I am in England where it's cold at Christmas and we have done a more traditional theme for our kits! Let me show you the entire preview.....

What do you think? You are going to get all of this scrappy goodness for free!! Woo hoo! My contribution to the collab is in two parts - first, there is a kit called "Shabby Christmas" and then a kit called "Bright Christmas". Today, you can have the papers for Shabby Christmas - you will have to wait until next Friday for the elements. Then, two weeks from today, you'll start to collect Bright Christmas. There will be some goodies in between from each of my fellow collabers - be sure to check them out during the week for those. Before we get to the download, I wanted to show you some CT LOs using my part of the kit - all the girls have done me proud as always! Thanks girls - I love you all! There will certainly be more to come!




So, now it's time to visit all the lovely ladies blogs for their parts of the kit:

Linda - Bon Scrapatit
Dawn - Snowsmoon's Design
Mel - Mel's Lightbulb Moments

Remember to leave some love for them all. Click the links below the preview to download my papers and check back during the week for more!
