Our November winners and more December inspiration ...

Welcome to our mid month reveal and the announcement of our November winners. Some gorgeous pages amongst our entries last month - thank you everyone for playing along with us.

We'd also like to thank our sponsors this month - Time to Create and Shop and Crop.

Time To Create is a family business. We share a passion to create, share and develop the best that we imagine!  We only stock products that we use and believe in. Our stock is always priced at the keenest costing we can do. We support Australian manufacturers and many Australian suppliers and try to have as wide a variety as possible.

As a family business Shop and Crop  strive to bring you all the latest from the Scrapbooking and Papercraft Industry, all our staff are very experienced and talented scrapbookers...We pride ourselves on great customer service, with a quick turn around of your orders of instock items.  We cater to both the online customers and through our store front at 10/335 Hillsborough Road, Warners Bay.  We love nothing better than for everyone to drop in, have a coffee on us and browse and enjoy all the great scrapbooking products.

Congratulations ladies.

Could the winners please contact me at with their postal details.  Don't forget to grab our winners badge from the sidebar. 

Our Creative Team highlights from last month (yep there are tow of them) go to  Di and Lizzy who went above and beyond with their pages.  They will receive a little something from me.

And now some gorgeous inspiration from our remaining design team using this wonderful inspiration
To wish you a happy Christmas and New Year  by  Ethel Spowers.

Criteria is to use this colour palette - your entry does not need to be Christmas themed
 (unless you would like it to be).

I chose to do an altered project this month - a Christmas bottle dress. A perfect Christmas give-away. I have decorated with a lot of chipboard coloured with Inca-gold.

We have a holiday break over Christmas and New Year. The children have their big school holidays, and it's a very relaxed time of the year for us. Last year we went camping with friends which was lots of fun. So I decided to scrap these photos for this Christmas challenge.
I kept the papers simple and used background stamping and embellishments to dress the page up.

I went with both the colours and the Santa theme from this month's are inspiration.

For my December layout, I have used the colour palette to scrap a 'one-time-only' photo of our son, aged 17 months. He was not impressed with his first encounter with Santa.
I have used Pan Pastels and Distress Inks to colour sections of the background.

Now it is your turn ...

 Remember we happily accept all forms of paper crafting for your entry including digital and encourage international submissions.  All we ask is that you create a new entry for our challenge although you are most welcome to combine with a sketch and/or colour challenge if you wish.  You have until 11.55pm on the last day of the month to submit your entry.

We don't have a guest Designer this month as it is so close to Christmas.
