Here is the "Winter Wishes" Sketch for December

My First Layout is based of this month's sketch

This layout is of sweet Alex... I used distressing ink and a distressing tool to created the distressed edges. Added a stamp sentiment, a few rub-ons  and I cut the flourishes using Spellbinder die cuts.

I love creating alter pieces, I found a unfinished wooden tissue box at a local thrift store.  I cut the papers, adhered them to the box, stamped a few flourishes, added rhinestone flourishes and paper flowers. This project is very quick and easy.  I usually give away most of my altered pieces...not sure if I will give this one away or keep it. I am thinking about placing it in my office. 

I used Spellbinders dies and embossing tools, added a few paper flowers to create this card.
I made this for a scrapping friend for her retirement gift. 
Another layout of Alex...I love this soft photo of him, he is growing into quite a handsome young man.
I distressed the edges with a distressing tool and distressing ink. I added many layers of fabric and paper under the photo.
