Missed deadlines...Jillibean Soup fun!

Well, the story behind this layout is a bit funny. I was quite motivated to have this one done in response to not one, but two challenges! Enthusiastic much??

I just had the right papers to join in on the fun at Life.Paper.Scrapbook for their December color challenge. It was going to be fun! Then, I just had come across this great sketch from My Creative Scrapbook for their December sketch challenge. Perfect! It was all coming together.

Except life/work got in the way and I missed both deadlines! By about a day or so! But I had a great time creating this colorful Christmas layout with the Jillibean Soup Winter Tortellini collection and I rather like the result. Good memories for us.

This is a visit with Santa and Mrs Claus in December of 2012. The 2 older boys got some Legos (is there any better toy?) and the little one got an Oscar the Grouch garbage truck. The title is: "La liste des gentils"- it means of course The Nice List...

Here's the great sketch by My Creative Scrapbook:

Here's the fun color scheme, the December color challenge at Life.Paper.Scrapbook:

And here's my take:

So challenge accepted! but a bit late! better late than never- I still had a blast making this one. And someday, I'll have to explain that smirk on Mrs Claus' face... Hubby seems content enough... hee hee hee...
