I've got another surprise for you today and one that I've been working on a little bit each week. I made this journal page using Welcome to a Sweet Christmas by Magnolia and a sneak peek of Saffron from Little Miss Muffet Stamps!

I realized after this project was finished that I never had a plan when I started. I first had Saffron colored and ready for a winter scene ... and lucky for me I found the Magnolia door! I don't know why I colored it black and white but I think it turned out great - the contrast between the two images is perfect.

Here's a close up of Saffron which is going to be a freebie over on the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog coming up soon! You don't want to miss out on her so keep and eye out for that to happen. But I'll give you a hint... all the fun will start with the next LMMS Challenge. ;D

Some other fun items on the page are first, the poinsettia flowers I picked up at the craft store today. I *almost* wish I hadn't because now I need to go back for some more! LOL Lastly, there are some gems and at the top corner is a chippie from Make it Crafty. Hope you've enjoyed it and Happy Holidays! :D

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
