3 Scrappy Boys 12 Days of Christmas Crop {Lily Bee sketch - Durban Christmas Time}

Hiya girls!  Just sharing the layout I created for my 
day over at the 3 Scrappy Boys boards where we 
are having a "12 Days of Christmas Crop" - I hope 
you register on the boards & come & join us!

Seeing that this is all I had left of my December kit 
(which you can see in my previous post) I tucked
into the rest of my Lily Bee stash to create this page

The challenge ends tomorrow so I thought it would be the
perfect idea for the 3 Scrappy Boys community to create
a layout using some of their Lily Bee papers from the
December kit & enter the challenge alongside me!

I made the sketch my own as you can see!

 For that embellishment up top I combined 7 Lily 
Bee stickers and a ribbon-cut piece of paper.

I cut the blue woodgrain sticker in half so I 
could use it on either side of the title and 
matted the one with checkered paper.

 I made the flower embellishment using my large scallop 
punch, a doily & my circle punch to add a border around the
"So Hot" sticker with couple of leaf stick pins to finish it off.

It's 1.30 a.m here & I'm heading to bed.  Just needed
to get this post linked up to the Lily Bee Blog so I don't 
miss the deadline.  I have a houseful of teenagers at the
moment so it's been busy & noisy for a few days!

Wow! You certainly made the most of that kit!

This is a gorgeous take on the sketch. I love the idea of being able to wear a bikini at Christmastime! That is so different from Christmas in Minnesota.
