Tuesday Throwdown #176: What Christmas Means To You

Here we are, my friends! It's the last Tuesday Throwdown challenge for the year and .... I want to say something profound meaningful but all I can manage right now is "Aaaaargh! Where has the year gone?!!!"

What's it like in your home? Peace and  Joy? Or, as it is in our home: Panic and Mayhem. If it's the latter, a little creative interlude may help. Why not play along with us. Our theme is: "What Christmas Means To You".  Our sponsor is MelJens, the purveyor of the cutest festive images. You have to check out their on-line store: MelJen's Designs. For my project, I'm using this adorable image called Christmas Star Snowman, the greeting is called Let It Snow and the sentiment inside is called Looks Like Christmas.

I'm using scrap papers from Papermania's Animal Frolic. This 8x8 pad has been in my stash for 3 years or more. It's probably out of print now!  SB Circle and Scalloped Circle to cut out the image and SB Label 4 for the greeting. 

I coloured the snowman with Promarlers and applied lashings of Icicle Stickes... what else?!

Sticking with all things trad on the inside too.


I'm taking Frosty to these challenges:

Make It Monday #170: AG
Fashionista #4: Winter
Paper Playtime #25: Winter Fun
Make My Monday: A Frosty Theme
C...is for Challenge #12: Traditional Christmas
Incy Wincy Designs: Let It Snow
Lexi's Creations #105: Snow
52 Christmas Throwdown: Pick Past Challenge - August Theme: Carol / Hymn
Use It Tuesday #69: Finale - Winter Holidays - hoarded patterned paper.

That's all from me today. Why don't you head on over to the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog and take a spin around the rest of the DT for ideas and inspiration. I hope you'll play along with us. There's plenty of time because you can link up your entries until 3:00pm (PST) on 31 December 2013.

Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see what you some up with. Stay warm everybody!

Beijinhos!

  17. Panic & mayhem...at least I never decorate until after the kids finish school, and even then it's pretty much limited to the tree! So that means I don't really have to clean until then, right? Right? My husband volunteered me to bake for several people, and a potluck, so I guess that's on the list now too.
    I love the image - and how you did the rays of the star! So cool :)
