Challenge #150 at Sketch n Stash

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.

I need to start my post with an apology for not being about much this weekend.
Saturday was a day of mixed emotions - I had my two beautiful Grand-daughters Lola Arizona and Ruby Mae for the day - the first time I have had them together on my own and it was so lovely to see them play together - I am truly blessed to have a beautiful family.

But on Saturday I also heard from my beautiful bestest blogging buddy that her DH was rushed into hospital and they have been given some devastating news - I know a lot of you know who I am talking about and are praying for them both. I cannot even begin to imagine the pain they are both going through at the moment and I just feel totally helpless.

Anyway I am here to share a DT project that fortunately I had made earlier as Mr Mojo has taken off - in fact all my DT makes this week I made a while ago - which is just as well. 

So today we have another fabulous sketch to play with over at 

and here's what I did with it:

Another quick and easy Festive make to add to the box.

Here's what I used:
Design Papers: LOTV 'Simple Joys'
Spellbinders: Labels 18 & Floral Ovals
Retro Flower Punches Small & Medium
Adhesive Pearls - The Hobby House
A touch of Glossy Accents added to the berries in the image

Our sponsor this week is:
offering 1 lucky winner $10 to spend in their online store

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

Challenges I would like to enter:


Thanks for calling by to see me today.
I really do appreciate all your continued support and encouraging comments.

Before I go I would like to leave you with a couple of photos from the weekend - unfortunately they are a little blurry - so difficult to get little ones to keep still for just a minute :o)

Have a wonderful day.
