My Pink Stamper's Live Challenge

I watched Robyn and Karlee over at My Pink Stamper last night and they wanted everyone to participate in a 30 minute challenge. I couldn't do it last night because I had a cranky baby and a sick child to take care of. I did however complete the challenge today. We had to use the colors pink, purple, and green. I wanted to play around with some ideas for my Christmas cards and this is one of the ideas (minus the colors). I really like how it turned out, but I think that it is missing something. It will bug me all night. Well I hope that you all like it.

Card is 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 
White layer is cut at 4 by 5 1/4 then ran through the Cuddlebug snowflakes folder
Penguin and all layers cut at 2 3/4 in
Season's Greetings Stamp from Hero Arts.

Thanks for sstopping by.

Photo Book for MPS challenge

Can you tell I'm working my way back on all of the challenges. See challenge here.
This is a quick album that I put together. All cuts are from Boys will be Boys( my fav for now) at 2 1/2 in. Chipboard cover and back  are cut at 6 1/2 by 4 1/2. All paper is from SU. I really love the colors that I used on this. I then sent it through the Bind it All. ( I love this thing). I then put about 50 photos in it so that I can take them to work to show everyone current pictures of my boys. I took them to the park last weekend and took great photos. I really like the way this turned out and it is a great way for me to store lots of photos before I can scrap them. I think that they will make great gifts. I have been in the craft room much more lately so I think that I will start working on the X-mas gifts that I want to make for my family. Can't wait. I will probably make more of these.
