Not a Creature was Stiring

Didn't I just finish telling you how I wanted to document some of the Christmas traditions that are so important (and that just might be unique) to us as a family? And then comes along the new Once Upon a Sketch challenge which must have been reading my mind.

Because along with this marvellous sketch the journaling criteria just so happens to be to document the traditions of how you spend December 25th. Of course here in Australia that's Christmas Day, but I didn't realise that in other parts of the world Christmas is celebrated on different days.

So in our household we just try and make sure the kids don't get up before the sunrise, and then it's present time! As a Christian family we don't have Santa Claus bring our children presents, rather they receive their gifts from us directly. But the stocking still remains a rather convenient way of 'wrapping' them all!

Lots of little fun details on this layout I think. Like that Imaginarium Designs chipboard branch which I figured could pass as holly, and needed a bauble hung from it :-)

I'm in love with those alpha stickers from Fancy Pants and want them in every colour. Certainly teal is the perfect place to start.

And a sprinkling of star confetti on textured cardstock. How cute!

Now onto our fabulous sponsors for the current challenge, and a little insight into what you could win if you play along .......

Papiers de Pandore is a French manufacturer who are offering one lucky winner two complete paper lines!! You've got to go and check out how beautiful their blog is. 

As is our custom, Imaginarium Designs will give away a prize package stacked to the gills with yummy chippies. 

And then my good ol' favourite Handmade by Suzanne will send someone not one, but two Tim Holtz embossing folders!

Check out all the details on the Once Upon a Sketch blog here.
