CASE STUDY CHALLENGE #168 Christmas

I'm going to keep this one short - first of all it's Thanksgiving so I hope you are spending your day with family and have a HUGE meal planned.  I see lots of cooking in my near future - in fact it's already begun and the bird is in the oven!    I've been without telephone or internet service - today is day 3 - and no I don't have a smart phone so I think I will begin haunting McDonalds for their free wi fi soon.  Apparently the "server is down" in my area.   So I am a bit late posting for the CASE Study Challenge this week.

This month our muse is Keisha Campbell from A Bit East Coast!   Here's the inspiration photo.  Wow!  Can I tell you again - I adored just about everything about this - except for the neutral colors.   I can't help it!  You wouldn't know that from visiting my house - lots of neutral colors there - but my paper creations are like flowers - full of color.   I switched up the theme to Christmas making the die cuts ornaments, and the tag a poinsettia.  Inside the die cuts are little images of Santa, poinsettias and even a nutcracker! I hope you find some time after all your black Friday shopping tomorrow to unwind and play!
Thanks for stopping by - fingers crossed I'll be back in action soon.  I look so funny with my lap top, remote hard drive loaded with pictures and my spiral notebooks with all my "ingredient" lists!  Have a great day!

I love your take on Keisha's card! The rich red and soft pink is just lovely and I adore all those images behind the tiny die cut ornaments!

Have a fab Thanksgiving and I do hope you get your connection back soon!

Not sure how I missed this card but it was worth waiting for. The colors are bright and beautiful. I love all the sweet little scenes behind the background paper, just perfect.
