...JuGs ChaLLenGe 100...

Here was the JugS 100 Challenge...a SkEtCh...

AwEsoMe right??? 

 I looked at it and thought...It'll take me  40 minutes tops...all I need to do is figure out WhAT is going in that oval....hmmmm....ok...Wow...all those shades of blue sure look pretty....maybe halloween?  I never use about the  CozY Cottages set I just got?...those blues are really gorgeous...a paper smoOches set?  Good golly...I should use BlueS!! ...what images go with blue? about the reindeer in this Taylored Expressions set sitting right here on my desk???  In case you were wondering what my thought process was here...LOL! :)

And honestly, 30 minutes was all done except choosing the background paper and ribbon...which took another 30 minutes and made a ridiculously LaRGe mess!!!!!  Think a 20 men, 3 days to clean up mess...backhoe required mess....holy shedoobie I have A LOT of paper mess!!!

ok...enough it is

I rarely do pretty...and when I do, it's almost ALwaYS a struggle.  This just came together really easy!  Except the background paper...I must have tried 30 different papers before I decided to give up and make my I heat embossed white snowflakes onto enchanted evening blue cardstock...should be good right???

 To quote my son...EpiC FaiL!!  

All you saw was the stinkin' reindeer!  I pulled out ANOTHER paper that I thought didn't have a prayer and saw this ledger paper...not a very Christmas-Y choice...but It was the winner!!

I do truly LOVE this set!  I hope you like it too, because  I'm sure I'll be using it a ton this holiday season!  

Thanks for looking!

Have an AmAZinG Thursday!
