*Anything Goes*

Good morning! Can you believe it?
It's our LAST challenge of 2011!

We're going out with a bang this week...

We know how busy this time of year is! Carve out some time to create - a gift tag, a layout, a last minute holiday card or gift.  Link up one project you've made this week for a chance to win:

An Echo Park "Dots and Stripes"
Christmas Collection Kit!

Christmas Dots and Stripes 12x12 Paper & Accessories Kit 26pk from Echo Park Paper ~ Save 15% 

Here's the final project from our fabulous Team B designers:

Sometimes I get tired of scrapping Christmas projects all December so I thought I'd do something different for this challenge :)  Thanks TPV for an awesome DT experience!!! 

This is my favorite Christmas card I've made so far this year! The snowflake background was created with my Silhouette, and the paper and stickers are Echo Park. It has been a true honor to be a part of the TPV design team. Thank you Abby and Suzanne for the opportunity-I have enjoyed it tremendously!

Being part of the design team here at The Paper Variety has been one of the best experiences I have had in the last several years.  Abby and Suzanne are awesome to work with and it has been a pleasure to get to know and be inspired by my fellow DT members.

Here is a Christmas Gift for my in-laws that I wanted to finish early! I thought what else could be more perfect than making them a nice picture tray! Sad as well to upload my last challenge to TPV it was an honor being on this team! Thank you ladies!

I wanted to create a scrapbook page for this anything goes challenge, but alas time has being slipping through my fingers at an alarming rate recently and I haven't found time. Instead , I decided to create this Christmas card for my form tutor. I have used a paper from the gorgeous My Mind's Eye O' Christmas Tree pad. I LOVE this pad, and decided to use the poinsettia paper, making a panel and then cutting three of the flowers out to shape and layer together. It's so sad that this is my last project for TPV :( I have really enjoyed my time with the team and looking at all of your fabulous projects. Keep up the great work this week :)

It's seldom that I have pics of just my pup and I - I'm always behind the camera. But the hubby captured these gems 2 winters ago.. hanging out at the front door watching the snow plow go up and down the street. Let it snow!! :)

You have a few days left to apply for our 2012 design team! We are accepting emails through Friday and will notify people on Saturday. Abby and I get so excited, we won't be able to wait :) Don't miss your chance!!

Have a great week!
