Day late and a dollar short!

I've been in yearbook land again this week! It's coming together nicely, but man, it takes a lot of time to get it how I want it to look! I'll be snapping a few more photos as I discovered yesterday, some of my classes were missing group class shots! My deadline is fast approaching, so this weekend will hopefully be when I'm all done with stuff!

Anyhow, I did both my weekly favorites which are Sparkle's Christmas Challenge, and Danni's Flutterby Wed. I even made them on the right days! Sadly, no time to post them until today. I'm posting them together, because I have a thousand things to do, before sitting back down to go over the yearbook again.

For Sparkle's, she gave us a layout to use this week. (I didn't see Sparkle's challenge for this week, so the link is for a week ago, but it has the layout on that post.) Very fun layout! I used images sent to me by Linda. Thanks, Linda! I can just see Gabi on the girl card! I should have made her hair darker to make it look more like Gabi. I cut out her legs and the bird house with a crafting knife before I put them thru the nesties. I like how they stickout some. I covered the snowman in pixie dust shimmerz. Cutie pie is covered in pink shimmerz on her top. I added fun flock to both, red to my snowman scarf, and gloves, and my mixture of glitter and white on Cutie pie's fluffy part of her outfit.

For the butterfly image, I finally mounted a stamp I had gotten in a grab bag from TAC. I believe it's a retired stamp. Such a big bold butterfly. I used a layout off SCS, SC120. Pulled out a favorite paper line from TAC called Genevieve. I think she had a challenge listed last week, but I forgot to peak before I began stamping at 10:30 last night. (Just went to copy the link, and saw it was to use orange and yellow! I'm way off the mark on that!) My main image, and punched butterflies are covered in pixie dust shimmerz.
Supplies: TAC paper lines-Genevieve, and Merry Wishes(retired), primas, Martha Stewart butterfly punch and scallop punch, snowflakes from Target shimmerz-pink and pixie dust, stickles, Koh-I-Noor pencils, DCWV cardstock, fun flock-red and white, nesties, dewdrops.
