We had the most wonderful Christmas!! Check out Meaghan Hannah and Paige
Challenge#7 is up now at LET'S GET SHABBY Feel the sunshine by interpreting this INSPIRATIONAL picture however you choose with a SUMMER INFLUENCE
(totally scrapable!!!)
I was completely taken by the colour and beach scene!
So with this in mind, I created this little beach house taking the umbrellas from the pic and transforming the green and lemon ones into flowers, and you can see what I did with the big one!!
Who wouldnt want to swap places with the beach girl under that umbrella right now!!
Rush on over to see the other Design team and Guestie's creations and check out the prize
The completed December Daily!!
(sorry about the flash points in the photos...twas getting dark!)
21st -Our little garden bandicoot comes out every night for scraps!
Cosmo (17) and Blacky (12) taking in the festive preparations!
Blacky is actually fast asleep propped against the kitchen chair.
22nd- Paige and Hannah cook with their Dad in the kitchen every year together!
23rd- ornaments that Grandma creates fully decorates our tree!
24th - All is quiet- Paige! 25th- It was such a chilly morning I had to remove the stockings and light the jolly fire (pardon the pun!!) Diggin into those santa sacks!! Ahhhh - the squeals of delight!
Boxing day! Grandma and Grandpa with all the grandkids on our back garden stairs Yay! The end!

I so love your little Christmas mini book. What a great idea to remember what a wonderful time of year it is. The little house you did for "Shabby" is very cool. I love the colors and that you incorporated the inspiration picture on your little house....I have to say I much prefer the hot over the cold....It is so cold here right now. Hugs to you, Amy
