The "Christmas Movie Quote" Challenge

We are in the home stretch people!! Only 4 more days until Christmas day. WOW!!

We have a fun new challenge for you to work on over the next two weeks...and we are calling it the Christmas movie quote challenge. We all have favorite holiday movies, and of course there are always classic lines which you turn over in your heads throughout the year. So I thought it would be fun to use some of those quotes as titles, or journaling on your scrapbook pages! That is the only requirement...use a Holiday movie quote. :)

Check out the fabulous takes on this from the DT down below. As you can see, we ran the gamut of ideas with this one, from Michele spinning the "Yes Virginia" classic quote, to my use of a summer photo, with a holiday movie message. You can make this challenge your own and spin it how you like. After all, the spirit of the holidays should last throughout the year.

So have fun with this one...it is running today, through the 1st. Please be sure to add your link in the comments section, so I can find your work, and it would be great if you could also add what movie you are quoting, so I can add that to the slide show as well.

Virginia "It came" quote from The Grinch Who Stole Christmas

Michele "Yes Katie, there is a Santa Claus"...spin on the classic " Yes Virginia" quote

Michelle "If Things don't turn out the first time, you've still got to believe" Miracle on 34th Street

Noel "Smiling's my Favorite!"-Elf

Jana "Singing Loud for all to Hear" from Elf

Also...just wanted to remind everyone that the "Paper Doll" kit will be up for sale this Saturday morning!! I have already had a huge response to the sneaks...so this one will not last! Set your reminders to check the store at about 8am (PST) on the 26th, to get your kit!! See HERE for more sneaks!

HUGS and Happy Holidays to everyone!!

The Merry and Bright Challenge

Happy Holidays everyone!! Yes, it's that time of year again, and you know what, it snowed at my house last night. No biggie for a lot of you, but I live in California, so for us, it was a big deal, even if it was only a very light dusting. :) I am now officially in the Holiday Spirit, so let's do a fun challenge!
Jana had a great idea of doing a "Merry and Bright" theme. So the idea behind this challenge is to simply "bling out" your layout (that rhymes by the way)...or make it merry and bright. :) Use gems, glitter, stickles...etc, to add some "BAM" to your work!
This is running from today, through the 18th. So be sure to add up your links so we can all see you work, and create a slide show.
I know there are 10 million challenge sites out there these days, and our participation has dropped over the last year as people join other DT's and have obligations to their own teams, but I still love doing this site and coming up with unique ideas for scrapping, so hopefully a few of you will join in and make it fun! :)
Here are the DT examples:
