The prize this week is 3 Punky Teen Christmas Images.
I decided to go totally non-traditional this year and I made "placecards" persay however, they are more like greeting cards in nature. Except for their interior which holds a piece of legal paper stamped with the words "give thanks". Each member of my family (my hubby, myself and our two children) will have a cool skull and crossbones pencil at their place along with their respective card. Before we eat, we will discuss and write down what we are thankful for. Clearly this will go into the scrapbook!! =)
They are all different, yet the "structure" if you will is the same. Each card has 2 large scallop sections on the right hand side, two fern skeletons on the left, and some kind of specific embellishment to represent or coordinate for each person.
I used a different image for each family member from different lines that SBS offers.
I used the following:
My first card was done for my daughter, Kendall. She is a TRUE artist...I can already see it in her. She is a free spirit already at the tiny age of 6. I just ran with what my artistic voice told me for each member of my family. Here is my creation for Kendall.
My darling four year old son, is just a CONSTANT giggly, dancing, pirate and dinosaur-loving, exuberant ray of sunshine. Snuggly and sweet and lovey beyond words. Here is my creation for him:
My husband...who could not be more supportive, nurturing and loving. I need not say any more. This is my creation for him:
And for me...
I was sent that AWESOME skully paper umbrella from one of the fab girlies that I'm on the DT with over at Smeared Ink and I've just been WAITING to use it!!!!
This was a FABULOUS exercise in creating specifically for my loved ones for a most special holiday that we celebrate together JUST the four of us.
I hope you have enjoyed and been inpsired!!
