Jolanda said...

Stunning creations by the DT. I thin I'll pass this one, making X-mas decorations is not my kind of thing :) but I am looking forward to see what everybody will create :)

mandysea said...

Thanks so much ladies for your lovely words!! Its all about everyone sharing ideas!! We love it! Jolanda, you can make whatever you like! Xmas decorations is just one idea. LO's are just as lovely - it could be a pic of a scene, the birth of Jesus, -a Christmas hymn/carol or story or Xmas list! The menu for Christmas dinner, or a photo of everyone around the table! soooo many ideas! Or a card, box, gift wrapping!!
Hope that helps anyone who needs some ideas. If you dont celebrate Christmas - what is it you celebrate the equivalent of (if there is one) or what do you do on Christmas Day celebrated by others??

We truly cant WAIT till we see your creations!

Julie said...

Great work by the dt and a big welcome to the team Timea.

Jolanda, you don't have to make a decoration. It can be a layout or even a card.

Jolanda said...

Thanks so much Mandy en Julie for your comments en explanation!! I might give it a go after all.. and if not I shall be happy to play again in the future LGS challenges!

Toni said...
