Boutique cybercropping

The December cybercrop at Scrap Boutique got me scrapping LOTS... I think it's the first time I've completed every single challenge:

Making a list and checking it twice...

The December cyber crop at Crafting in Style had a quasi-Christmas theme - "Making a list and checking it twice", and I enjoyed creating some projectss for the fun challenges.

Laura's challenge was to use transparencies:

I'm so much in love with teal at the moment!!

My OTP challenge was to create some gift boxes or gift bags using a template from packaging at home:

The Challenge-the-DT challenge was an unusual one, but I did manage to put together a layout I'm happy with. The criteria: dark red with one other colour; mesh; and something from the bathroom. I don't have any mesh but I used a piece from the garage to stamp a background for the photograph, and I then I grabbed the bathroom plug and stamped with that too :)
