New challenge up at Method Playground

Beleive it or not ladies - i do not own any FLOCK - the new challenge up at Method PLayground is to show us your ideas using flock. I had to improvise because i still haven't recieved the order i placed forever ago for flock. So i used a piece of Making Memories flocked paper and cut it out. The red flowers and vines on the layout are flocked. I used stickles around the edges to make them pop. Come over and play - and if you don't have flock - still play!! Then i made this little journal for Mason - I used a Fancy Pants Storybook and then all of the papers, chipboard, ribbon, and rubons are all from Fancy Pant's new line 'All Fall' - Super cute colors that work with almost anything! I kinda made Ethan feel bad - so its on my list to make him something next. Mason reads SO MUCH - i thought it would be a great idea to keep track of all the books he reads and how many pages.

FInally got our tree decorated last night - its beautiful. Kindof a strange one - its almost like 3 trees in one - so we're not sure where to put the star because there are 3 tops! I will show pictures soon. Hope every one enjoys the holidays . I'm a little overwhelmed because i have 9 christmas parties between the 5th and the 18th and that doesn't include Ethan's birthday on the 10th - does that sound like to much - it feels that way. I will attempt to put on my Santa hat and enjoy it!! Ho Ho Ho............

Wow, your blog is amazing, Brenda! Now is the time I admit that I've actually clicked on the link from Laura's site before...but I didn't put 2 and 2 together yesterday. I'm so glad we got to meet at lunch! And now I'll be checking in on your blog regularly :o). Hope your Christmas party went well!

Boy, December sounds jumping for you! Don't get too partied-out!

Your flocked layout is just beautiful... the red and pink combo is so pretty. I have some brown flock that I have yet to use and I should do some experimenting!

I like the "My Book/Journal" too!
