Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

Happy Saturday my fellow crafters!

Yes, it's December, Christmas is coming soon! Do you have all your Christmas projects finished or are you still working on some? If so, perhaps you'd like to participate in our monthly challenge @ CCAYR, themed "Santa Claus is Coming to Town". I've taken a contemporary take on this theme, using up some of my SMIRK decoupage.

* Create & Craft CS
* SMIRK Christmas Decoupage pad & mini topper from SMIRK Christmas Paper Pack
* Studio Light Christmas tree
* Numbers from local store (HEMA)
* Letters from my stash
* Eline's Winterhuis stamp set, stamped in silver and black ink

Where will you take this theme, will you also take it in a more modern direction or more traditional and vintage? There's plenty of options with the main man in red!

* Crimbo Crackers (Anything Goes)
* Dream Valley (Non-Traditional Christmas)
* My Sheri's Crafts (T'is the Season)
* Little Claire's (Christmas)
* SJ Paper Crafts (Christmas, optional Mix those Alphas)
* Sparkles Forum (Christmas is Coming)
* Wags 'n Whiskers (Christmas)
* Love to Create (Non-Traditional Holiday Colours)
* Lexi's Creations (Christmas)
* The Scrapbooking Queen (Christmas)
