I hope you have been following along with the Last 12 Freebies of 2012 over on Kelly's Blog!  The team has some amazing freebies for you every day until the end of the year.  Today is my day and I have a cluster frame freebie to share with you.  Kelly is showcasing her favorite kits, counting down to the one that is her favorite! I chose the kit Sleepy Beauty because Aurora is my 4-year old daughter Sarah's favorite princess.


I hope you enjoy the frame, it makes a good word art too (that's how it started out, but then grew!).

 I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Go on and make some memories!

 Hard to believe that this is the last blog challenge of the year!!  Thanks for participating month after month.  December's theme is all about celebrating parties, holidays and events throughout the Disney Parks.  Here's all the rules and instructions to play:

  • Scrap a page that showcases a holiday or special event held at Disney. There's so many special events like Star Wars Weekends, Food and Wine Festival, or Flower and Garden Festival. You can scrap holiday decorations from theme parks or resorts, characters in holiday costumes, even holiday parades from MNSSHP or MVMCP or any other holiday. Don't forget your own family birthdays and anniversaries.  There's so many possibilities.

  • Since this is the last challenge of the year, there are no rules!!  You can use as many photos as you want and include as many elements and papers that you choose.

  • Layouts should be made with 100% Kellybell products or freebies (you are allowed to use a template from another designer).  You are welcome to submit more than 1 layout.

  • Post your layout into the Challenges Gallery at Kellybell Designs by midnight EST December 31st

  • Two winners will be selected and announced the first week of January.  One winner will be chosen at random so all participants have a chance to win. The second winner will be selected as the most outstanding layout. Both winners will receive a gift certificate to Kellybell Designs store.

    You might want to look at some of these kits below or ideas to use for scrapping your challenge layout.
