Classic Christmas part 3

First I want to thank you all for taking the time to leave a comment, here, on 4 shared or in my new shoutbox, I love reading them all and comments keep me motivated to make you more freebies.

This weekend I managed to get all the christmas decorations and the tree up (with the help of DH, getting all the boxes from the attic, lol) and I even found some time to make a little add-on to the ~Classic Christmas~ kit.
With Christmas only two days away, ......

I want to wish you and your loved ones a
Merry Christmas.

Another Challenge!

You all know I LOVE the DSO color challenge, it's just the BEST.

Over at DSO there are many other challenges (click link) and I've tried another one this month. The Doodles Dares Challenge! It was hard but sooooo much fun. You had to put a lot, and I mean A LOT of elements on a 2 page layout.
This is the layout I made, in DSO December colors!!! (what else)
Thank you so much DoodleLT for this great challenge!
Ok, I know you also want a freebie, so I split the layout and made 2 QP's, and I included the tree and the presents as seperate elements. The text is not included, you can use this space for your own journaling. I had fun with this, I hope you have too.

Quick Page +

First message for Jan J
Sorry no plans to cross the ocean, lol, but you can always join a forum like DSO. Its a great forum and very helpfull or online tutorials, there are many of those on the www. Good luck and keep on trying....

Today you can download another QP + I made of a layout featuring ~My Guys~ (DH and sons)
The frame might look familiar and you're right, I used the 3 ring frame for Amanda aswell, but instead of the flowers I used stars on this one. In the zip you'll find background, border, frames, keycord and tag. Hope you find it usefull, enjoy and happy scrapping.

I got another award. This one was given to me by Sam. Thank you so much Sam for this honour.

The rules for this award are simple. I need to tell you seven things that I love, and then pass the award on to seven other blogs.
Last week I got the same award and the seven things I love haven't changed, lol.
The seven blogs will have to wait until I can find some time to bloghop again.
Next on the agenda:
Makeyesup send me an email about things going on, at 4 shared(illegal files) and I am so grateful for those emails and the fact that 4 shared deletes the files so quickly.
Just for the record, here's a part of their text:

4shared strives against spread of illegal content and will cooperate with law enforcement, owners of copyrighted products, and third parties in order to remove inappropriate files from 4shared site.
We will take steps to ban the publisher from uploading these files to 4shared service in the future.

Thats it for today. :)
