African Christmas Layout - Scrap Around The World November Moodboard by Tiphanie Barbreau





Hello everyone!  A pinch & a punch for the 1st of the month!!

Welcome to November's mood board at Scrap Around The World!
You  can see the post at SATW HERE along with all the beautiful
projects from the Design Team as well as from Tiphanie herself, who
is sadly no longer on the team as she resigned some time ago due to
sickness.  Fortunately she is fit as a fiddle again & agreed to Guest for us!!


Yes it is a Christmassy/Holiday mood board!  But we are only in November!!
Indeed, that is true, but with December just around the corner now we are
 hoping to a) get you into the holiday spirit &
 b) help you get your 2014 Christmas photos scrapped 
so you are up to date!  You see - there is
 indeed method in our madness!!!


Truthfully I created this layout many moons ago!  Earlier in the year I worked like
a trojan to get ahead of myself this year & good thing too as since June I've
 suffered quite a series of setbacks, so my advance planning really paid off.


I've really enjoyed stash-busting on my SATW projects this year.

That is truly my FAVOURITE part about challenge blogs - having total
freedom to create using whatever you like!  My Christmas tree cameo,
rose trim & layering papers all come from Webster's Pages,my "merry"
 title from Heidi Swapp & my base paper from Kaisercraft.  My flowers
are  from Prima & my wood-grain overlay from Studio Calico.


I tucked in some pretty paper from Dear Lizzy by American Crafts
& some really cute Christmas Bauble flairs by sadly defunct 3rd Eye.


I hope you will be able to play along with us at Scrap Around The World this
 month! We have all our usual TWELVE prizes - details of which will follow tomorrow!!

I love your page and the background is so awesome! Your layering is wonderful and the family photos, including kitty, are lovely! Thanks for sharing!

An African Christmas looks very much like an Australian Christmas. It can be 40+C, so shorts and Tshirts are the dress code for the day. We have seafood and a cold lunch, but save room for a serve of hot Pudding. The brick background looks great and I love the Prima letters. I have hoarded sheets of those :D
