4th Layout

Here is the fourth LO for my sister...I used a piece of DP from GCD Studios called "Droopy Vines" from the Rose Coloured Glasses Collection. I really like the pinks. The light pink is SU Pink Pirouette...such a pretty colour. I Kindy-Glitzed the stems on the page but you can't really see it in the photo. I added some flowers and a leaf and some ribbon and lace.
I am a bit over the Christmas shopping at the moment. I only have four presents left to get, but they are all hard ones. Honestly, I could so enjoy Christmas if presents weren't involved...I know some people really love opening presents...but I could do without it...maybe just a thoughtful, hand-made gift, but all this running around, stressing over what to get somebody...what is the point? They probably wont really like it anyway, and would have preferred to buy themself something else.
Sorry for that burst of negativity - but it is just being with family that is important and sharing a meal, having fun...presents aren't a necessity for me.
The ladies over at Creative Inspirations and Creative Card Crew have been leaving me some lovely comments for all my entries in their challenges and here is another one! After I re-work my first layout I will not be bothering them again! Hope they dont mind another visit : ). I am also entering this in Quixotic Challenges - Lace.
I am sending good vibes out to everyone who is Christmas shopping today...I hope you find the right gift within the right price-bracket and before you know is wrapped up under your tree and you can forget about it!
Take Care...
(The jaded Christmas shopper lol)

I understand how you feel completely girl, I feel the same way!! I like to buy gifts for people all year round, and don't like to feel like I have to!

Your layout is great, I really like how the flower pops out from the page!

Peace and Luv,
