Christmas Presents - ColourQ #163

Good evening bloggers! Whew,, where is the time flying?? Is it really
almost Thanksgiving?? Who is ready? Not me for sure!

Since it is Tuesday it is time for a new palette at ColourQ and 
this weeks colors were perfect for the Christmas photos I wanted to scrap.
Yes,,, I am just now scrapping my 2004 Christmas photos - yikes! I have used Bazzill cardstock for my base, MME patterned papers which are probably almost as old as the photos!, Creative Imaginations rub-ons, Prima flowers, Sizziz die, Fiskars punch, Basic Grey stamps and some random bling. 

I love these Basic Grey stamps,, I bought them so long ago and I always forget I have them. I layered bits and pieces of scrap papers along one side of my photo strip and added some lace to the other.

The snowflakes are CI rub-ons, and I added a bit of bling to the centers.

My title is another rub-on, and I covered the whole piece of paper with a glaze. The star punch is from Fiskars, and it is from some time ago, I don't think they make it anymore :o(

Here is a look at the colors for this week,,,
