Once again, just sharing my page from the Challenge.

Here were the items that needed to be included.

Sketch

Patterned Papers

Stitching

Bling

Quote – “I have one desire now – it is to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord, putting all my energy and strength into it.” Elisabeth Elliot

Chipboard

Something Messy ( I used beads)

Lace or Ribbon

1 Flower (oops used more ) :(

Rub ons or stickers

Buttons

Butterfly

 

Here is my page with everything except as I just noticed while writing this post, I have too many flowers!!

 

 

I do have to say I LOVE IT!!

I did not have a picture of me to use, that matched the phrase.

I used my daughter because right not in her life, she still thinks it is wonderful to talk about Heavenly Father and Jesus.  She loves to tell me when she feels Jesus in her heart.  If I can just figure out a way to keep her feeling those feelings she has now, wouldn’t that be wonderful?

 

Without further ado, I am announcing my BLOG HOP winner.

Sorry this post is a little late.  I have been down and out with a doosey of a cold!!

I had 29 comments.  I used RANDOM.ORG to generate a winner 1 through 29.  The winning number?

 

So, Tere…if you are out there.  Please use the contact me form on my BLOG and give me your info, so I can mail out your prize.  Thank you ALL for playing along with the MY PAPER TREE HOUSE bunch.

We look forward to having lots of thing for us all to do together in the upcoming year!!

Big hugs to all!!

 

My Paper Tree House – Blog Hop Challenge

19 Dec Blog Hop Page

First I want to say, thank you everyone that stopped by for the blog hop.  I think we will announce winners tomorrow and hopefully you have had time to create a layout or the challenge.

I have been sick, sick and more sick.  Doing a traditional layout just was not going to happen.

So I defaulted to digital for this challenge and managed to still get all the required elements in.

We had a sketch to go on:

 

We also had random items we collected on the hop to add to the page.  Here were the items:

A lost tradition, found.

14 Dec

Before my mom passed away, she used to buy all my kids a Christmas ornament for the current year. As my number of children got higher in numbers, she still carried this tradition on. For awhile, she handmade each one, customizing them to the grandchild’s current likes in life. I have acorn angels, popsicle stick Santa’s, Pooh Bears, Blues Clues and Baby’s 1st Christmas ornaments for almost all my kids. She also added to my ornament stash every year. While she was alive, I got a new ornament from the earliest time I can remember, she did this for me.

As I was thinking of what to make this week, the thought hit me that my youngest 2 children will not have the privilege of receiving that special ornament from Curly Grandma each year.  So, I need to start, or restart, this tradition for them. When they are older, I will be sure to tell them where this tradition started, when it ended and when it started again.

I only had time to make 2 ornaments to show, but I will be making more for the rest of my children.

Believe it or not, I only used 1 die set. The set I used was: Scalloped Oval – LST103

I took an idea from one of those fancy magazines, no one can afford to buy from.  They had these lovely paper ornaments.  So, I used their idea for my own.  The main body, of the ornaments are made out of vintage piano books that I had lying around.  They had already started to yellow, so I did not need to do much distressing :)

Here is the ornament I made for my youngest, my princess, my joy…yep, I LOVE HER~

 

This next one, I had to make just because I wanted to see if I could.  If one of my older daughters loves it as much as I do, she can have it be her 2010 ornament.  If not, it is MINE!!!
Again, I only used the Scalloped Oval dies on this.  Made all from the same vintage sheet music and embellished with supplies I had on hand.


These were somewhat time consuming, but well worth it.  Part therapy, part mom love.  I think I will enjoy doing this for my kids every year.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Pretties.

Be sure to go over to The Cheery Lynn blog to see my other team mates creations.

We all work so hard to make things for you, I know you will enjoy what they have to share also.

Also coming up this week is the Blog Hop for http://mypapertreehouse.blogspot.com/.
