That's right! This month the sponsor is US!!! And in keeping with the spirit of Christmas, our team is playing "Secret Santa" for this month's winner. Our lucky winner will receive a variety of happy, scrappy, surprise gifts. Doesn't that sound fun?! (Maybe if you are all VERY good, we might post a few sneaks during the month to tempt you.)

Now here is some inspiration from our team to get your creative juices flowing...

Embellishments from Rainbow Splendour, Charms Creations, Burdy's Embellies, D-lish Scraps
