It is that time again to announce December's LOTM, and can you believe it is almost a new year as well? Time sure does fly. I was browsing through Funky Playground Designs Gallery and there were so many LO's to choose from but the one that really stuck out and I thought was just so awesome was a LO by our own CTM Adriana. It is titled Free As a Bird and I just love how she has her daughter in several different poses in the same scene. I just thought it was so unique. Here it is:

Here are a few questions to get to know Adriana (drica) a little bit:

Please tell us where you are located in the world. What is your favorite thing about where you live? I'm living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil since October. I love the Brazilian hospitality and all the beaches.

What is a 'must have' item you put on your pages? I'm in a splatter face. I can always use some glitter too!

What program do you create with? How long have you been using that program? I use Photoshop CS5, since August.

Adriana used Misty's kit "Tweet, Tweet" for her lo.

So please go and browse Adriana's awesome LO gallery at Funky Playground Designs.

Wonderful Wednesday Freebie

Ciao girls!
Another freebie to share with you all, Wendy here to bring you some word art for this holidays, I used the so cute kit and alpha of Misty O'Brien"Let It SnowFlake" available at the FPD store.

Download HERE

I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas wherever you are, and wish you an amazing new year! Buon Natale e Buon 2011, Feliz Navidad y Feliz Año Nuevo 2011


2 Freebies, One Mallow Idea...and a partridge in a pear tree.

Christmas is just a few days away, and I'm scrambling to get everything ready. It doesn't help that it is 83 degrees outside (no, I'm not kidding)- but I'm pretending like it's cold and making homemade hot chocolate and dipped marshmallows as gifts for all my friends. Speaking of gifts..... :-) I have one for you! Actually, I have 2! Bren has made 2 beautiful quick pages for you using Misty's "Everyday Happenings" kit. I've included an example of one of them below.  If you click on my layout, it will take you to the download link for the quick pages!

Also, for those of you who are also freaking out about last minute gifts, I will share the source of my inspiration: Dipped Marshmallow Pops!

There- that's actually THREE freebies for you! I'm sure you want to show your appreciation, so leave a comment with a 'must download' Christmas music idea for the rest of us! (namely me....)

1. What is a 'must have' item you put on your pages? Ribbon or Ric Rac - I can't live without it!!
2. How often do you edit your pics you use to scrap with and do you think it's important? I edit almost all my pictures in some way, whether a simple color boost or just cropping. I'm not a great photographer and I find that editing the photos can make them appear better then they actually are.
3. Do you use templates? YES YES YES!! I love templates. I think they are great when you are trying to get something done in a hurry, or if you have trouble with clustering, templates can be a great help.
4. What other things you do besides digiscrapping? Other then digi-scrapping, I read alot. My favorite authors are Kristin Hannah, Jodi Picoult, & Nicholas Sparks. I also spend a lot of time with my family playing games or watching TV and movies!
5. How do you think you've improved since you started digiscrapping? I've improved on my journaling capabilities for sure. It used to frighten me to have to journal and now I love it, whether it is a few sentences to a few paragraphs. I still have a long way to go though!
6. What is one part of digiscrapping that you would like to improve on? I would love to improve my clustering. I love layouts that have a lot of clustering and white space but I have to work really hard to achieve that look and I still struggle with it.
7. What is the first LO you've ever made? 
This is a layout I made for a Speed Scrap when I first started. Kit is Beautiful You by Digi-Designs by Nicole and Jacabean Designs.
8. What are your favorite three LOs ever made?
 Kit used: Fall Festival by Misty O'Brien Designs and Ruby Lane
Template: Survivor Templates by Pretty in Green


Thank you Kimmy for sharing more about yourself with us!

Glynis here with a fun challenge for you this week. Does your family have a fun activity that they love to do this time of the year? Where I live the weather is cold and my family enjoys playing the snow. Maybe you live somewhere 'down under' and you're ready to head to the beach. Do you like to stay inside and bake Christmas cookies or snuggle up by the fire and listen to Christmas music?

Whatever it is, we'd love to see a layout about it. So create your beautiful page, link back to it here in the comments and we'll enter you in a drawing for a $5 gift certificate to Misty's store. And as an added bonus, if you use Misty's products in your layout, we'll add your name TWICE! And just for participating, you'll receive a fun quickpage, too. Don't forget to leave an email address so we can contact you, or check back here next Monday (December 13) to see who the winner is!
