Christmas wishes in December ...

Oh gosh 24 sleeps until Christmas !!!!   Welcome to December.

This month we are taking a bit of a step back from our formal challenges and issuing you something simple, easy and stress-free for the lead up to Christmas.

We have a Wordle for you.  These are great fun to produce - kids especially love playing around with them so steer them to the blog and let them create.

The idea this month is to let a word or words inspire you to create your page.  You don't have to use the actual word on your project (unless you want to) but please let us know in your post which word(s) you used as inspiration and why.
Inlinkz will be left open until 11.55pm on January 5th, 2014 to give you ample time to create your pages.  Snatch a few minutes for yourself over Christmas and enjoy some crafty time.
Now it's time for some delightful Christmas inspiration from our wonderful creative team.
 I used a number of the words to create this page about some homemade Christmas cards I have created.
For us the holiday season is all about being together as a family and enjoying time together.
My layout was inspired by Peace, Love and Family.
I hope no matter where you are, no matter how you celebrate that the festive season for you is filled with the wish for peace and the love for friends and family.
Don't forget to keep you camera handy for those perfect photo opportunities too!
The inspiration words I used are Snow, Winter, Children, Present and Toy. The photo is of my nephew driving in his new Christmas present, an electric car on Christmas day in the snow. There was no way he was going to wait for the snow to disappear before he tried it.....
I have been inspired by the words gifts, presents and children - showing my daughter delighted with what she received on Christmas morning.
This layout is one of my family and I have hidden journaling behind the tabs at the side of the picture.  It was a wonderful day full of love, family and 'Christmas Joy'.
A layout about Santa, gifts, a beautiful Christmas tree and festive celebration.  Merry Christmas everyone.
 Christmas to me is all about love, happiness and being together as a family.
Please upload the DIRECT link to your actual entry with the link tool on the LEFT by 11.55pm on January 5th, 2014. We'd love to see your paper, digital, or off the page submissions.  Please no back-dated submissions.  You may combine with a sketch and/or colour/technique challenge.  
Karen Findlay is our Guest Designer this month - she makes the most delightful cards so please call back on the 8th to see her take on our Wordle challenge. We will also be announcing our November winners a bit earlier than usual this month as they will go up on the 8th as well.
