Papertake Weekly - Pick Of The Year!

Good Morning!
I can't believe it is Christmas Eve already! Even though I have been planning it in my head for ages it feels like it has crept up on me really quickly! Today I need to Marzipan & Ice the Cake, make some Gingerbread Men, labels some gifts and most likely remember something I have forgotten about at the last minute! Tomorrow should be interesting too as I am cooking the Christmas dinner at my house for both me & Andy and my parents for the first time!

Onto something a little calmer and this week's challenge at PAPERTAKE WEEKLY is Pick Of The Year! All you have to do is simply pick your favourite theme from 2013. I have chosen one from all the way back in January called Baby It's Cold Outside! As you can see I have also used one of my favourite colour combos at the moment.
I also used the technique of Sticky Embossing Powder & Distress Glitter but as usual the photograph didn't pick up the sparkle very well at all!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
ALLSORTS - BROWN WITH BLUE
INKY CHICKS - CHRISTMAS
SIMON SAYS STAMP - BLING IT ON
DEEP OCEAN CHALLENGE - SOMETHING OLD
(Old - Rubber Stamp & Distressed technique used)
SKETCH SATURDAY - SKETCH

Penny Black Stamp
LOTV Papers
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Glittered Snowflake
Cheesecloth, Ribbon, Wooden Heart, Dew Drops & Glitter
Ranger Glossy Accents & PVA Glue
Tim Holtz Paper Distressing Tool

Thanks for popping by, I shall pop by again tomorrow to say Happy Christmas and to share the delightful Christmas Cards I received this year along with some festive snaps!
