Allsorts ~ Monochrome Christmas Sketch

Good Morning

It's Saturday again so that must mean it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts. This week it is Brenda's turn to set the challenge and she has chosen 'Monochrome Christmas plus a sketch'. Monochrome can be black and white or different shades of a single colour.

Image & Sentiment ~ My Craft Studio 'A Classic Christmas' CD
Papers ~ Bearly Mine Designs 'Designer Extreme Vol. III' CD
Embellishments ~ Snowflakes K&Company 'Swell Noel' Layered Accents and Kanban Gems

This week our sponsor is Nikki at Bunny Zoe's Crafts and the prize is this super cute Bildmalarna stamp ~ Tossa on Ice.

We are going to have a busy day today because we are taking the children and a friend to Planet Zoom which is an indoor play place and then tonight we are going out for a meal to celebrate my birthday. It's just going to be the 2 of us because Chris' mum is coming round to look after the children. It feels strange to go out without the children as we do lots of things together and to be honest I always feel mean leaving them at home but I am sure they will have a lovely time with Nanny.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
