Busting at the Seams!!

No, not from eating too much at thanksgiving, although I did ;) I have been dancing around in excitement waiting for the announcement at Elle's Studio so that I could share the news that I made the design team for the January-June 2011 term!!

When I got the email I literally had to re-read the first line a couple of times to make sure it was true! I have loved and used Elle's designs for a while now so being on the design team is really a dream come true. I can not wait to get started! You can see the announcement and the rest of the team HERE. What a line up huh?? I am completely blown away to see my name on the list--thrilled beyond belief!!
Speaking of Elle's Studio, I do have a layout I haven't shared yet here, which includes an Elle's Studio journaling tag:
I debated on whether or not I "needed" those cloud punches, but you can see how long that debate lasted lol. The papers are Echo Park's Everyone Loves Christmas line with a smidge from Walk in the Park. I love when I can use holiday papers easily for non holiday layouts.
And if that isn't enough to make me really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here...
The stockings are hung:
The tree is up...
OK, that is SO not a good picture of the tree. I need to take a full tree picture on Friday when the Bobos (watched GoDiegoGo! lately anyone??) are at school so they are not trying to touch the camera or play with the ornaments. Speaking of the monkeys, they are pretty excited about Christmas and the impending visit from Mr.C.
We made a gingerbread house:
And Little Miss got all gussied up for her Christmas Music Performance:
And speaking of Christmas preparations, we have been doing a 12 Days of Christmas crop at 3 Scrappy Boys including links to projects, ideas and inspiration. I posted a couple of cards today that I made with the December Trio. You can see each day's offerings on the forum HERE.
And last, but not least, a couple of a cards I made for my LSS Scrapbook Barn with the cute Doodlebug Designs Christmas line:
