There are so many

challenges out there nowadays.  Noel Mignon has one on her blog called the Sugar & Spice challenge right now, good through January 22nd.  I saw the requirements and instantly thought of this one photo from Christmas that wasn't that great, but yet portrayed everything about what Samantha asked Santa Claus for. She asked for all things pink, jewelry like necklaces, rings, bracelets. Girly girl things like a purse, wallet, new dress, etc.  Santa brought quite a bit in her stocking this year, and after we opened presents she wanted to get dolled up. ;)  She was even wearing her new pretty pink scarf with her blue headband.. it worked!

  The back story to all the photos looking like the suck... (I have very few that turned out well) is on Christmas Eve, every year, we go out and get a hot drink, (or a cold frap from starbucks) and look at Christmas lights.  I took some photos while we were out that night. Came home, took Christmas Eve photos before we went to bed.  Woke up, and chaos. My camera setting was still on nighttime. :(  A lot of them are either blurry, or overexposed.  The photo in this layout, is way blurry... but my girl looks CUTE, and by golly, I decided to scrap it.

Everything Nice

Supplies used:
PP: Heidi Swapp, Ki memories; Cardstock: Bazzill; Chipboard: Cosmo Cricket; Stickers: Doodlebug, Love, Elsie, Glitz; Felt: Michael's; Ribbon: American Crafts; Stickles: Ranger; Bling: Prima; Brads: unknown
Thanks for the great challenge Noel!
