MTME Pretty Pattern Sketch

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone is having a wonderful time today with family and friends! It's time for another MTME Pretty Pattern Sketch Challenge!

Thanksgiving reminded me that tomorrow is "Black Friday", so I decided to make a Christmas card for the official start of the Christmas season.
Digital paper is from The Farmhouse Fresh Collection. Isn't it delicious!
The sentiment and images are from the Beautiful Baubles Collection. The sentiment was digitally colored, and Copic markers were used for the rest. I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge! You can link your project HERE. Sketch Keyword is MTMEPPS37. Need more inspiration? Check out the blogs of the amazingly talented DT. Their links are in my sidebar. The paper and images plus much more are available now in the My Time Made Easy Store. Check it out! 
If you're shopping tomorrow, Be Careful Out There! LOL  I plan on staying home. Now is a good day to work on decorating the house. I have a good start on my shopping already thanks to some pre-Christmas sales and discount coupons. Plus everything that I bought is wrapped!
Happy holidays!

It's a Pixie Dust Twilight Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Pixie Dust Twilight Blog Hop! If you arrived here from the talented Jess Marin's Blog then you're in the right place. If not, start at the beginning at the Pixie Dust Challenge Blog.
Kathy has done an amazing job on this set of images for "Breaking Dawn".
I chose Forever for my first project.
Every bride and groom needs a cake, so I "baked" Bella and Edward a Paper one! LOL
Close Up of the cake topper.
A side view
The back
I flipped the image, and glued them back to back before placing the topper on the cake. The back needs to look as good as the front!
I used Bazzill white textured CS to make the cake. I found some Paper Studio pink pearl frosted CS and used a MS punch to make the "icing"decorations. It doesn't show well in the photo, but sheer pink organza ribbon has been glued to the top of the border deco on each layer. Tulle and pearl stems were purchased in the bridal section of Hobby Lobby. The flowers were found at Hobby Lobby too. I cut them apart and hot glued them to the cake.

Next, I chose Bella Baby Bump.
This is another page for my "Never Ending Twilight" book. As Kathy makes new images, I make more pages.
The sentiment is from the book Breaking Dawn.
Here are Pixie's four new Breaking Dawn Stamps!! You can find them all in the STUDIO!!
