my crazy kids and the december challenge winner

Good morning my Scraptastic friends!
So, what are your plans for the weekend?
First on my agenda is getting my house back in order from all the Christmas celebrating.
Second is hanging with the kids.
And last is fitting in some scrappy time
: )

Well, enough about me...let's get to the winner of the December 2011 Blog Challenges.
Chosen by winner of the December 2011 Blog Challenges is lucky number
which by my calculations is...
Anna Pettit
Congratulations Anna!!! Please email me your address to
And I just wanted to thank everyone for taking part in our blog challenges. I loved looking at everyone's take on the challenges! Great job ladies!!!
Don't forget that the January 2012 Blog Challenges have started, you can find the links at the top right of the blog. The prize for this month's challenges will be a $20.00 Gift Certificate to the Scraptastic Club Store
Now, onto my crazy kids...I've been dying to jump into the Button Box Kit and Add-On, (there is only 1 kit and 1 add-on left) so today I went through all of my pictures, looking for the right ones to jump out at me and say "pick me, pick me...I'm the perfect pictures for this kit". And low and behold, I finally found them...

I'm so happy with the way it turned out. I stole Juliann's idea of painting my alphas with my red paint dabber from the August Summer Star Kit. I needed more red to make those red glasses really pop. I did some fussy cutting to make my banner, and I matted those pieces on the blue cardstock from the kit to give my banner an extra pop.
That's all for me today...I hope that you all have a fabulous day and a fabulous weekend!


  1. Love it, and all of that dimension! Good luck returning your house to its former pre-Christmas order...I did that yesterday. It was awful, but it's over! (All except for the giant pile of crafty stuff and board games. Apparently this was the year of the board game/craft kit, and I have about 4 stacks of them all piled up in my kitchen...and nowhere to put them.) Have a great weekend, it's full of basketball for me. :)

  2. It's a super cute page, Jessica!!

  3. Congrats to Anna!

    I love your page Jessica. I was wondering where you all got the red letters from. I didn't even think that you'd painted them. LOL
