Getting into the spirit, and finding a little mojo.

It's been a while since I've had time to work on projects just for fun, and a while since I've done a Christmas layout that I was happy about. It took a silly package of bakers twine in the deal bin at Target to make me do both...

A page I did using Sue Sykes Sketch for Canadian Scrapbooker December Sketchy Challenge.

See that Gingerbread man? well, when he was laying in the bin at Target, he had a bunch of red and white bakers twine wrapped around his middle. I had absolutely no need for anymore twine, but couldnt resist his little face, and knew I could use him somehow. His sweater and boots were added out of necessity to cover packaging information, but they were the perfect addition to tie him in with the "ugly christmas sweater" feel of the ribbon strips on the left.

Not only did I get part of last year's Christmas events scrapped, I also found a bit of Christmas spirit!
