A time for TOGETHERNESS ...
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #41}

Had a busy weekend with teaching a scrapbooking class on Saturday as well as Sunday, but enjoyed every minute of it..

This week our theme for Challenge #41 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is ANYTHING GOES. I used the Xmas Kitties image from EUREKA.  You can find it here.   Love this cute image - each kitty seems to have its own quirky personality.

Surprise, surprise - its not another centre stepper, but my very first Twisted Easel Design.  I had a serious flop before this one, but in the end its quite an easy design.  I love this design as its folds down nice and flat to go into an envelope and one can add a personal message on the inside.

The image and sentiment were coloured with H2O's and dry chalks. The design papers are from BasicGrey and the circle embellishments were created with circle punches.  The sentiment is a free download from Create with TLC.

I really do hope you will play along with our Anything Goes challenge this week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner.




So at last our little Xmas tree for 2012 has gone up.  Its at the end of our entrance hall.  Not the best photo, but here it is:


So I am off again to join some challenges with my Christmas Kitties:
Thank you again to all my lovely Followers, old and new, for popping in here and leaving so much kindness.  I always endeavour to return the favour.

  6. What a delightful image Desiree and it looks gorgeous the way you have kept the colouring to a minimum and lifted the card with the red.

    Your tree looks so pretty as well.

    As you are a runner, thought you may be interested in my post just before the weekend about Alex's achievement. We are so proud of him, as parents are !

  39. Hi Desire,
    Deine erste Twistet Easelkarte kann sich sehen lassen. Sie ist wunderschön in ihrer ganzen Gestaltung und auch die Farben gefallen mir sehr sehr gut.
    Das Katzen Motiv ist so süüüüß.

    Dein Weihnachtbaum gefällt mir sehr gut. Wunderschön. Ich habe gestern auch einen Weihnachtsbaum gekauft der wird aber erst am Sonntag bei uns im Wohnzimmer aufgestellt und und mit bunten Kugeln geschmückt.
    Ganz liebe Grüße sendet Dir Carmen :)
