My oh my I have had an outpouring of creativity and it sure feels good.  Scrappin Sports & More challenged us to step out of the box with a shaped layout ands some cards and (after some initial pouting) here is the outcome:

I had so much fun with that circle layout I made an extra one!

I almost forget to mention that I got some cool new toys to play with from Canvas Home Basics and Mark Richards!!  Check out this Christmas in September box that arrived on my doorstep!  I used the string of crystals on the Tea Party Layout and the "Thanks" Card.  Fun and Easy!
