Critter Challenge #38

Well.. is time ever flying by fast. The challenge at Critter Sketch Challenge Blog this week really made me realize just how fast it is going.. before we know it, Christmas will be here. I really need to get shopping!! I'm normally done by September, but since the boys came that just doesn't seem to happen anymore!

So.... in case you didn't catch it.. our challenge to you this week is to use the theme of Christmas.... here is my layout.. "Christmas with the Keehn's". We are spoiled at Christmas, as my husband's side of the family does their big turkey dinner on Christmas Eve and then we do a big turkey dinner with my family on Christmas Day... usually at my sister's house as it is the biggest. Of course since I'm the one taking the pictures I'm not in there.. but I managed to get everyone else.. even Tequilla the cat joined the festivities... although she wasn't too impressed with having to wear the paper hat that was in the Christmas cracker!

I'm really not sure why all of the squares look crooked.. I painstakingly measured and lined them up.. I'm thinking that maybe it is because of the inking... they don't look crooked in real life!

The green paper is all Jilly Bean Soup - from last year. The dark brown is Bazzil and the base is Kraft. I cut the title from my new Gypsy (that I won), and used the Gypsy font.
