Christmas is coming!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Christmas is coming like a steam train! It seems to be coming so fast! I love Christmas but this year I seem to be so behind! Having had this cold for nearly four weeks hasn't helped much either. Everything seems to have gone to my sinuses now so I have got banging headaches and I keep feeling dizzy! Nevermind last day of work tomorrow for two whole weeks yippee!!!!!!!!! Time to rest? not on your nelly! Pay day has arrived at last so I can now start the Christmas shopping and get the house ready and the decorations put up (very late this year!) Haven't yet made a single card! OMG got to get them done! Second of my Christmas meals out tomorrow after work! Hope I can taste something! my taste and smell have deserted me and I am getting a bit fed up of eating cardboard in various disguises!

It's snowing! Very pretty but bloomin freezin!!! Ah maybe we will have a white Christmas this year! (Iiiii'm dreeeeamin of a whiiiiite chrissssstmaaaaaaaaaaaaas, just like the ones i used to knoooooooooooooooooow!) not sounding too good at the moment won't torment anyone with anymore.
Don't forget you still have time to enter the challenge at from Screen 2 Scrap
there have been some fantastic entries again this month so pop over for a look see and get in the Christmas spirit and maybe have a go yourself!
Bye for now!

Oh Christmas Tree

Here is my submission for this months challenge at
From Screen 2 scrap

I finally managed to get a picture to upload!

I loved the bright Chritmassy poster we used for our inspiration and I love christmas trees so this was what I had to do! I look forward to getting my tree every year and always go out with the intention of getting a slightly smaller tree but I always end up coming home with the biggest one I can find and we have to rearrange the whole house to fit it in! I have actually thrown away an armchair this year in preparation for my tree! Christmas just isn't christmas in our house until the tree goes up!

The criteria for this month were ;

1. Use a Christmas Song title for you layout title - Oh Christmas tree

2. Use 3 or more Christmas embellishments stars, candy canes,snow man, presents etc... - Chipboard trees

3. Lots of colourful bling - Gems added to trees, Glittery title and ribbon, Shiny red and gold brads

Papers and embellishments are from Die Cuts with a view

My rainbow

Your rainbow is strongly shaded violet.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You appreciate beauty and craftsmanship. You are patient and will keep trying to understand something until you've mastered it.

I am Blue- it's not as bad as it sounds

You Are A Blue Girl
Relationships and feelings are the most important things to you.
You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.
If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.
You try to heal the ones you love with your kind and open heart.

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
