Dec 2015 – Layout Challenge


This is my first designer challenge so I am excited! Hope you have time to participate during the Holiday season!

Here is how it works

  • Grab a kit from your stash (or visit my shop)
  • Create a layout showcasing someone else’s pet
  • Post layout to challenge forum here
  • At the end of the month, via myMemories Forum mailbox, I will send you something sweet for participating

Here is my layout showcasing my friend Barb’s newest addition.


I used my newest kit called White Christmas



I am dreaming of a White Christmas


My all time favorite Christmas movie is “White Christmas”. I never had a White Christmas growing up but I did grow up watching moves on the A.M.C – American Movie Classics (if they still have that channel). I recent purchased the DVD version a couple years ago but I used to dust off the VHS and pop in the movie, after I sat there rewinding it. Now with the DVD version, fast forwarding to the end where Bing Crosby sings White Christmas is awesome, too.


SO those that have a white Christmas – enjoy! I will be enjoying a brown Christmas just because we need to save on water. Enjoy the Wilma4Ever blog train.

Here’s how it works:
  • Wilma4Ever post the monthly color scheme HERE in their forum
  • Every month on the 15th Wilma4Ever Designers publish their goodies on their FB page or Designer Blog
  • Each Designer will provide a special link to download their contribution to the blog train
  • Designers will post the blog list of participating designers – Current List located HERE
  • Please note: Depends on each designer how long their goodies are available
  • Click here for my portion – please note its available till the end of the month and then its gone!
