Just Us Girls Anniversary challenge #104...{merry and bright}

Click here if you are looking for my Want2Scrap and Eclectic Paperie blog hop post!

Hello friends!  It's a TWO year anniversary for the JUGs girls!  SO very exciting to be a part of such a talented group of ladies for two whole years!  Time truly flies when you are having fun!  This month we welcome the talented Maureen of Buttons and Bling as our guest deseigner and thank her for designing this week's challenge, an amazingly cool sketch!  Check it....



I got some Christmas on using fun papers by Flair (striped) and Papertrey Ink (bitty dot).  I could not resist adding the white pom poms to the ends of my banner and gussying things up with Want2Scrap baby red pearls, silver tinsel trim and red bakers twine!


I stamped the ornament using stampin up!  certainly celery and then painted it with Citrus Creative Inspirations paint plus stickles glitter on the stripes to give it some *shine*.

Speaking of sparkle and shine, be sure to check out the JUGs girls for lots of sketch inspiration and then join us for this sketch challnge, won't you?

Thanks truly for stopping by today!

Hello Dana!!!
You are making me want to head into my scrapping cave for the day! I am feeling so inspired by my fellow JUGS projects this morning! I love your white smudged edging and that awesomely decorated ornament! Fab job with the sketch girl!

Christmas....wowza, time is just speeding by! But, you've made me think of Christmas hot mint cocoa with mini marshmellows floating on top in our clear, holly jolly glass mugs we have. So, I'm smiling. As always, love your use of mixed fibers and sparkle! :>

Super SWOONALISCIOUS crafty work, lovely Dane! The layers and amount of completely delicious crafty materials are making me dizzy and joyful in a pre-holiday, everything sounds magic and full of possibility - kind of way! THIS is Paper Daydream PERFECTION, and one piece of gloriousness - {almost out of adjectives!} A keeper for SURE! Way to inspire JUGS into year three! Bravo!
