Nativity or Menorah at BBTB2

DT sister Susan asked us to make a Menorah or Nativity project this week at BBTB2. Here is my Menorah card, it's almost the same as hers (hers is prettier), weird huh? 

I used elements from the Family Album image set to create the card. It's supposed to be a scrapbook layout but I resized some of the elements and removed others. Here is a link to the DS file if you would like it. Everything is in the subscription so you should be able to cut it if you have that.

I have very little Christmas shopping done and nothing mailed. Everyone is going to be out of town so they'll get it when they get back. We have to go to school through Wednesday and it has thrown off my normally late timeline. Now it's just ridiculous! I hope everyone has a peaceful holiday season.

Christmas Wording at BBTB2

This week at BBTB2 our DT sister, Caroline, chose Christmas wording as the theme.  I made this free box from Dreaming Tree and added the "Happy Holiday's" ornament from the Merry and Bright Cricut image set. 

The box was really easy to create and is a pretty good size. It's about 4.5" tall so it could probably hold a candle or a demitasse cup (or of course candy) fairly easily. It's getting crazy busy in my world with Christmas and basketball season so I may be hit or miss for a while. I hope everyone enjoys the Holidays!

Here is my project:

 I used this cute, free files from Digiplayground to create a few little nifty gifties for the Christmas season. They whip up pretty quickly and are adorable when they are done.

They hold exactly 6 Andes mints perfectly and will be great little "thinking of you" presents without going over the top. The paper is all Recollections and the image is from the Teresa Collins "Deck the Halls" Cricut image set.

I know it's beginning to be really hectic in most people's lives at this point, but take a quick break and play along with this fun challenge! Have a happy holiday season!
