40 Days Until Christmas!

It's National Button Day today.  I love using buttons in my LOs so I like to add 3 or more to my kits.  I bought a lot of buttons at Jo Anne's for my hybrid projects.  When I was paying for them all, I was sure wishing my mother had been like so many others and started a button jar.  But she didn't, so it cost me an arm and a leg!  Are you a button-lover?

Keystone Scraps has a brand new 'outside the box' holiday kit that focuses on the craziness of the season!

 Merry Mayhem, is a light-hearted kit themed on the chaos and endless preparation leading up to the holidays. This kit has 20 patterned papers in bright, zany colors, along with 9 coordinating cardstocks. Merry Mayhem is perfect for scrapping all your Christmas and Holiday photos, gift wrapping adventures and the general chaos we seem to be surrounded in when all the gifts are opened and the papers are strewn across the floor! This fun kit is jam-packed with 67 fun unique elements including a tree, snowflakes, stamps, star, flairs, flowers, frames, decorations and "to do lists" as well as 4 fabulous "Mayhem Monsters" to create a little mischief on your layouts! It is available at Scraps-N-Pieces for 30% off thru November 22nd... plus you will get this fun 'Cookie Chaos' Add On FREE with purchase! (You can also pick it up separately!)


 I was thinking that the days before Christmas are hectic for us, but what about dogs? So I checked a public domain site I like and found these photos of dogs dressed festively. I thought they looked pretty humiliated -- kind of like how my dog looks when she has to wear the Cone of Shame. And that's how I came up with this LO:

  1. My DH won't let me dress my Rosie girl up so... I love the layout you did though. It would make a great one for a shelter to encourage folks to adopt a pet instead of buy :)
