A Vintage Christmas..

So how is everyone doing?    Are you ready?
It's getting close.  And I think I am finally ready for the for the fun to begin!

The hubby and I  will be headed to Arizona for the Holidays.
  It is always fun to spend some times with both of our parents. It is so nice
that they only live about 45 minute from each other. That makes it easy for us!
And then back here the day after Christmas to Celebrate with my Family,
here at our house..   So what are your plans for the Holidays? 
Are you off to somewhere fun for the Holidays,
or are you going to stay home and enjoy the season?

This week over at City Crafter Challenge Blog there is a new challenge going on..
Kirsty is our host and she is taking us to Aspen for a Vintage Christmas.

Here is what I came up with for this weeks Challenge..
So the challenge is to create a Vintage Christmas project!

The cute little image in the background is from our sponsor this week
If you play along with us this week you might get a chance to win some
Vintage Images from Cassi's Creations.

This beautiful pin is from June who will be our sponsor next week.
Thank You June!

So if you get a chance you should come along and play with us over at
CCCB!  Or just take a look at what all the other talented

I really do appreciate them..

Hugs, Linda

How wonderful that both of your families live so close together and you can spend time with everyone. Our family is spread out and so it will only be the 3 of us (4 counting kitty!!!) which means a nice quiet Christmas.
