December Challenge - White, Gold & Silver

Hello all and welcome to December
 Firstly I want to tell you about our DECEMBER CHALLENGE
I thought it would be nice to have a little colour challenge.
Now it doesn't have to be a Christmas layout as such but most of us have done Christmas ones.
Now onto our Guest Designer for this merry month.
I would like to introduce you to the very talented
Janice Nicholls

 Hi there, I’m Janice Nicholls and I live in a small country town in Cummins, South Australia.
I started scrapbooking in 2006 and my 2 beautiful children and family all feature in my work. My style is ever changing. At the moment I love double photos, grouped and layered clusters and white space.
I also like to add layers to my background using stencils, gesso, mists and inks.
I scrap mostly 12 x 12 layouts. I enjoy trying new techniques, not always successful, but it is fun trying.
I have been very fortunate to have been on some fabulous Design Teams and have had my work published in magazines.
I am honoured and thrilled to be Guest Designing here at Orange Paperie & Co for December.
 A big Thank You to the very talented Kim Ewins for inviting me.
Kim’s theme for this month is Gold, Silver and White and being December I chose to scrap about one of my favourite times of the year…Christmas.
Here is what I have created.

I hope I have inspired you to join in the fun here at Orange Paperie for December. Remember to link up your layout and share it with us…we would love to see what you create.

A truly GORGEOUS layout Janice
I know you have inspired me!!!!
A HUGE THANKS to Janice for being our DECEMBER guest designer.
Make sure you pop over and visit Janice's blog to see more of her truly beautiful work.
Now here is my layout using the
Colour Combo

{Peace On Earth}
My layout is about the 20 minutes of peace as the children put the decorations on the tree that is until they start arguing about who gets to put the star on the top!!!??

Hello again & welcome to December and the last Challenge for 2013. Kim has set us a lovely colour challenge this month - WHITE, GOLD, SILVER (it doesn't have to be a Xmas theme). So here is my version:

I know it's a really busy time for most of you, but I do hope you can join in this month. You may have a fantastic photo you want to scrap of your Xmas celebrations or just a special photo that you've taken over the Xmas period of your family & friends. Can't wait to see your creations!  You can see closies over at my blog HERE. Until next time.....Jo xx

Mary Here, 
I have chosen to Scrap a Christmas Photo of my two Grandchildren using the gorgeous Colour scheme for the month. Hope you can join us.
