CBC weekend challenge 6

'This fab challenge is one from Carolyn

'You must make any kind of scrapbook you like ready for photos, but it must have 5 Double Sides and be a Christmas theme.'

I've covered chipboard tag shapes with papermania papers (some of last year's that I'm trying to use up) and sanded and inked the edges with chalk ice jade:

'I want you to make your very own delightful peg fairy !'

I've taken a little time out from getting ready for Saturday (I've made quite a few more cards - might show some later - to do another challenge just for the sake of it:



Sympathy cards

Three I made last night (terrible, out-of-focus photo, but in a hurry):
