Scrap Africa Challenge #24

Hi everyone! No I haven't vanished from the face of the earth... just finding it very difficult to juggle all the different balls at the moment.  I have to apologise for being so 'blog absent' at the moment.  I am hoping to have a big blog catch up soon.  Wednesday will be my last day of work for the year and on Thursday my DD and I are going to try and get our last Christmas shopping done.  Nothing like leaving it to the last minute hey?
Scrap Africa has a new challenge and it's very appropriate one for this time of the year.  Create a layout, card, tag or OTP project using Glitter, Snowflakes and Masking. For more inspiration, check out the post on the Scrap Africa blog here.
Here is my example.  I've used papers from the Kaisercraft 'Christmas Carol' collection and a mask from Prima with some texture paste for the background.
I've cut 3 different sized snowflakes from silver glitter cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo and layered them.  The gem in the centre is an old one from Prima... I think. :)

 I've also cut the word 'joy' from the same silver glitter cardstock.
I hope your holiday program will allow you a bit of time to play along with our challenge. :)  I also hope that I'll have time to do one more blog post before Christmas, but in case of the unfortunate event that I don't, I want to wish you all a very blessed and happy Christmas!
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful week.
Until next time!
