Just for the record I have been updating this post with each page as I make them, each update doesnt change the date of the original posting...
PAGE ONE - SCRAPMUCH
My first mini album (8x8) is for my youngest sister, who also loves scrapbooking but simply does not have the time between her husband and young child. Below is my first page, which will take a 4x6 and 3 2x2 inch photos.
This page was inspired by the latest Sketch y Friday challenge over at Scrapmuch
PAGE TWO - STUCK SKETCHES
My second page is a stretched out sketch from Stuck?! - which was just perfect for the double page spread. You can enter at http://stucksketches.blogspot.co.nz/2014/12/december-1st-challenge-and-gdt-call.html
PAGE 3 - SKETCHES IN THYME
My third pages also stretches out a sketch - this one I found over at Sketches in Thyme this month
PAGE 4 - MY CREATIVE SKETCHES/ ARTASTIC
This page was inspired by this months sketch (below) over at My creative sketches: http://mycreativesketches.blogspot.com.au/ Whilst they don't accept entries into more than one challenge Im sure they will appreciate seeing another interpretation of their sketch anyway...
I also used the Artastic colour challenge criteria (below), although I pretty much stuck to the traditional colours with a yellow tag and both blues in the santa and reindeer picture. You can enter their December challenge over at:
PAGE 5 - LASTING MEMORIES HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
I made this layout to fit with The Lasting Memories theme for December of Christmas traditions. Whilst the layout is for my sister and is therefore photo free, it is about the Christmas tradition of writing a wishlist for Santa. My kids love to write letters to Santa including all the gifts that they want!

PAGE 7 - RED CARPET STUDIOS DECEMBER CHALLENGE

PAGE 8/ 9 - PAPERCUT LABS
I am entering these pages in the 12 days of Christmas blog hop over at Papercut labs
There are 12 different challenges and a whole lot of prizes, as well as a free December class....
FINAL PAGE - KAISERCRAFT DECEMBER CHALLENGE
Since the Kaisercraft December challenge was very much a one pager I decided to make the finalpage of my album using their criteria. I mixed elements and papers from Twig and berry, Turtledove and Be Merry Christmas collections. I originally stuck down the tickets, but then remembered the photo needs to go there! The tickets will go back down once my sister adds her photo....
