Movember

Hi everyone! I'm sure by now you are well organised and have everything ready for Christmas!  Eeeek! I am so behind... Time is running away with me this year. Hopefully our tree will be up after the weekend...
Just want to quickly share my take on Handmade by Suzanne's December Sketch Challenge.  It's another beautiful sketch designed by Shell. Love her sketches. :)
Just to remind you what the sketch look like:
And here is my take on it.  DH decided to play along with some of the guys at the office and do the Movember thing in 2009.  I always wanted to scrap these pics and when I saw the new Echo Park 'Times and Seasons' collection, I knew it would be perfect. 
 A close up of my title and that cute little moustache that was included in the sticker sheet.  Used the Crafter's Workshop 'chicken wire' template for my background. :)
You've got until the end of December to get your entry in. There is a $30 store voucher with free postage up for grabs and the winner gets determined by random draw. I can't wait to see your take on the sketch!
That's all for today! Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful weekend! I'm off to make a list of 'things to do before Christmas'.  Lol! It's going to be a loooooong one!
Until next time.

Love this LO Marelize! I've just used these papers for my HBS LO too! My hubbie threatened to go the Mo this November but decided against it. They always remind me of those bad 70's cop shows lol xoxo
