View Full Version : July 2012 - Christmas Letter Challenge

07-21-2012, 09:18 AM
Hello everybody, Feli here from Feli Designs to bring you a new challenge for your scrapping pleasure!

Well, here in Germany we have had a crazy summer so far - it lasted about a week in June ;-)) No, seriously, right now it rains and we are sitting at home in sweaters! Tomorrow morning we are leaving on a 3-weeks vacation to Austria, so I am guessing it will probably be even colder in the mountains!

So we might as well celebrate Christmas in July 8)

For this challenge, which will run until 31 July, I want you to write a heartfelt letter to Santa either from your child's perspective (if you have a child) or from yourself as a child!

I am looking forward to your amazing pages and when I return in August I will pick one lucky winner who will receive a $7.50 GC to my store 0:)

Here is a sample layout I created with LouCee's and my collab "A Christmas in Gold".


By the way, this new collection is 50% off for 2 weeks, I'm sure you don't want to miss it:



Please remember to post your layouts in the Christmas in July (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1269-christmas-in-july-60.html) category and return here with a link to your page, so we can go leave you some love!

Above all, have fun and ... Merry Christmas! :m

Absolutely fabulous kit.... and so much fun to play with.

My great-granddaughters visited with Santa last year. This is the oldest one's dearest wish now.

here's my try (i based the letter on conversations my little God-daughter has when she plays 'pretend Christmas' and is talking to Santa, and on the way she puts things whenever anyone asks her about what she wants from Santa):

In this times of shooting and violence it is my heartfelt prayer to have Peace. Please lets do this for our kids.
It is my heartfelt prayer that somehow the people in Colorado can go Beyond the Darkness and find healing.

Wow... how generous! Thank you so much. I know how easy it is to forget things when you are away on vacation. Hmmm... now will have to figure out what to get since I already have Potporrui and several of your newer releases. Always do love shopping, so will be spending time in the shop.
