Joy,.Les Papiers de Pandore and OUAS

I am a bit behind with my blogging lately!
Those of you who are frequent visitors here will know that it is due to my PC acting up on a regular basis.

Last period I was not required to make a lo for Once Upon A Sketch,
but I loved the sketch so much I had to give it a go anyway.

There is a new sketch up as of today and I will get back to that one in my next post,but decided that first things come  first and I will start with  my lo for Dec 1st. I already shared the sketc in a previous post.

Yesterday I could only share a sneak and this is what the whole page looks like:

 Don't you just love the beautiful new collection from "Les Papiers de Pandore"?
It is called "En Attendent" ( Waiting ).
For those of you who live far away from France and don't know how to get hold of it I have some news.
Julie is sponsoring the current challenge over at OUAS.
Go over there and check out what you have to do to be eligible to win no less than TWO whole  collections from "Les Papiers dePandore"!! 

We were supposed to journal about what we love and look forward to in December. 
I chose to write about spending time with family and seeing the happiness shared by my children
 enjoing time together.
This holiday will be precious as Alexandra is coming home for the first time since going away 
to University in the UK.

 The cute flowers I made using a die from Marianne Design, a Dutch manufacturer. And the doilies were made with a die from Cheery Lynn Designs.

I love the little cut-outs and journalling spots from "En Attendent".
Together with the gauze and felt snowflakes they add a lot of dimension to my lo.
I chose to only add glue to the center and thus have the possibility to keep sticking things underneath  
(and on top...) as my lo evolved.

I hope you enjoyed a little Christmas Joy here and that you also will experience a lot of that in your lives!
Thanks for dropping by!
