Christmas Organizer

There is still time to join in the Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop and don't forget to leave a link on my post to be in with a chance to win one of Meljen's Designs new rubber stamps from Whimsy!

I was so thrilled to have won the 
Spoonful of Sugar Challenge last week so I absolutely had to play along again today!  Still trying to decide what to spend my voucher on at BunnyZoe crafts! So much to choose from!  
This week the challenge is Winter Wonderland!
So perfect as I have been meaning to make myself a 'Christmas Lists' book for a while, well probably years!  I always have one but it has never been 'altered' before!
I found this notebook in a Yard Sale for pennies and love it, it has lovely old paper inside and the outside wasn't too bad but not at all festive.  I soon sorted that out!
I love it even more now, it  is one of those books that feels as good as it looks!

Paper Sundaes challenge is all about changing seasons and as the snow and festive season will soon be upon us I thought this would be appropriate!
Bah-Humbug Christmas challenge asks for Favourite Cuties!
This one is certainly one of my favourite Cuties!  I even coloured the dog to look like our little pooch!
The stamps I used are
Lily of the Valley ~ skating along
Whimsy Stamps ~ 'Newsprint Ads', 'Holiday Ticket stamps'
Cats Life Press ~ Merry Christmas
Stampin up ~ post card and postcard

The paper is one of my favourites, Basic Grey 'Figgy Pudding - Pepperberry', I have used this every year and the year before last bought heaps of it but it is now sadly dwindling away!
Thanks for dropping by have a great day!
