So I just love this fun line by Jillibean Soup, it's Christmas Chestnut Soup. The fun little sprouts that go with this line are a must have also. I added a little marker action around the outside of the sprout on the green and drew a line around the card, did a little inking on the paper, used my fabulous Kreaxions Circle Cutter to cut out some patterned paper in the middle of the circle, a Stampin' Up sentiment and my Xyron adhesive and I was done.
So I guess I can say one card down and a million more to go :)
Happy creating everyone,

Wow....thanks so much for this Linda, for nominating me for this blog award!
According to the rules, I am supposed to list 3 things that make me unique, and then nominate 5 other bloggers with attitude….
1. I freak out if i'm running low on adhesive! When I mean low....if I don't have at least 4 refills i'm freakin' thinking i'm going to run out!
2. I always have to sleep with socks on :)
3. I do everything left handed...even grabbing things out of the fridge has to be with my left hand.

Well I have the cover of my book done, so check it out!
I'm so excited with how the cover turned out and I can't wait to get the inside pages done to share with you. When it's someone's birthday that you know, do you ever wonder what is their birthstone, or what is their sign. I have created little tags in front of each month with that info on it. They look super cute just hanging in there. I also have tabs at the top of each month which you can kind of see in the picture. All of the fun tabs and tags were made using the cricut.
Well ladies this is super fun and easy to make. Why not start you new year out with a new occasions book!!
Supplies used: Teresa Collins: Freestyle paperline, chipboard cover, & chipboard elements, ribbon & fabulous fun blingage, and the super cool stamp set!! Can't forget the foam pop dots, and glossy accents.

For this project I used a foam green floral wreath that was 10" in size. I cut out a bunch of different leaves out of the fabulous Teresa Collins paper, then inked the edges with black soot distress ink. Next I grabbed my hot glue gun and started putting down the base leaves. After that I just filled in the spots I thought needed filled in. On some spots I used foam pop dots to add a little dimension to the project. The finishing touch was the candle in the middle which pulled the piece together.
This paper line your can grab at The Scrapbooking Studio.....also don't forget to reserve your spot now for this coming weekends classes with Teresa Collins in person!!!!!! It will be totally fun!!!
