The Latte Lounge Christmas Celebration

It's time for the Christmas Celebration at The Latte Lounge! There are going to be challenges, chats, and lots of fun.

I'm sponsoring the Christmas Candy Challenge. Your challenge is to make a project that is inspired by Christmas candy. There's a lot of room for interpretation in this challenge. Make sure you read to the end so you can see the prize - it's yummy!

My first project is an Advent calendar for Peanut. I followed a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers. I made the numbers and the sentiment using my Traditional Christmas paper pack. The other papers are from My Mind's Eye. Each tin contains a piece of chocolate - Christmas candy!

If you'd like to make this yourself, I'd be happy to share my numbers and title with you. Just send me an email at jljdesigns at cox dot net.
I'd like to enter the calendar in the following challenges:
1. Lothian Crafts #9 - for someone special - Peanut is very special to me!
2. Stamp with Fun #87 - advent
3. Really Reasonable Ribbon #13 - anything but a card - winter - it's hard to see but there's a beautiful red ribbon with snowflakes holding up the calendar.

My second project is more literal. I used Cherrie with a Candy Cane from Tickled Pink Stamps. I won the Cherrie Christmas digi release in a blog hop - yummy! I made a little folder to hold a paper pad that I got at Michael's. The papers are My Mind's Eye and the stickers are Jolee.

I'd like to enter this project in the following challenges:
1. P3 - to do list or organizer
2. Top Tip #12 - anything goes

Finally, Peanut has a card. She's used a digi from The Greeting Farm - two mice with a candy cane. I think all the glitter and jewels she's used remind me of yummy candy too.
So, you've made it to the end and here's the prize. Stickers, ribbons, and papers in the Christmas candy theme. The challenge is open until December 10th.

We hope to see you at the Christmas Celebration at The Latte Lounge!
