The Creative Stamper, Guest Designer Day 1

Hi all!  Today is my first day as Guest Designer for Peachy Keen Stamps and I am SO EXCITED!  I am so honored to be chosen as one of the guest designers for the year.  I absolutely LOVE Peachy Keen Stamps as I am sure that most of you do too!  I also love the fact that they are made right here in the midwest not too far from where I am outside of Chicago.  It's always good to support product that is made in the USA!
  
Anyway, let's get on with my first project.  So last week I was out with a friend at a local mall and I literally gasped (!) when I saw the Christmas decorations and Christmas trees in the windows of Macy's.  Didn't we just end summer?  Is it technically even Fall yet?  I couldn't believe what I was seeing!  So as I started thinking of what I wanted to make for this week I thought all I would make would be Fall themed project to keep with the season BUT I just got the CUTEST little elves stamps (Lauri and Skip) from Peachy Keen Stamps and thought I HAD to use them in a project!  I hope all of you aren't too shocked to see a few Christmas projects from me this week as I was to see the Christmas trees at Macy's.  I just couldn't resist doing something with these!  The photo is one of my adorable children from a few years ago.  I love how this scrapbook page came out:-)
Supplies Used:
Paper: All the paper used is Stampin UP!, Old Olive, Real Red, and a retired Christmas DSP
Ink: Stampin UP! Real Red for shading around the ornaments
Cricut Lyrical Letters for the wording
I colored the cute little Elves with my Copics

In honor of my week here at Peachy Keen Stamps, PKS has generously donated the Make a Monster Face Assortment set as a giveaway.  


All you have to do to be entered to win this set is to comment on this post and also pop on over to my blog, http://thecreativestamperspot.blogspot.com/ and make a comment as well.  I will be posting every day this week and the more you comment, the more chances you have to enter!  This set is perfect for all those fun Halloween projects.  I just might have a project coming up using this very set soon:-)  Take care and thanks soooo much for visiting me!
