It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!! Unscripted sketch # 36

As it should be with only 6 days left til Christs Birthday! Today wewill be visiting yet another Santa through Bills work, it's the Kids Christmas Party courtesy of Pfizer. Before I get to Unscripted Sketch I want to share some pictures with you. Last Sunday we had a wintry fog it was really bizarre, it did however create the most beautiful white glistening trees ever! These photos are several days later but still stunning to me!

It was pretty cool taking these because it was warming up and you could hear all the crackling of the ice as is was falling off the branches. I also want to share my families snow man it's not a fat rolly polly fellow it's a long stretch out fella!

My kids were proud and apparently Igor (our dog) was too! I bet he can't wait to add some color tomorrow morning!!!

Ok now onto this weeks Unscripted Sketch # 36, again by the brilliant mind of SarahKaye! I made humble thank you/Christmas gift this year for all the kids teachers, they deserve way more! Here is one of the bags I decorated using the sketch, it's a wretched photo but I wasn't used to working with something so tall!


 I created my own handles for the first two bags then after that I decided the twisted whatever-you-call-it looked ok after all! I really lik this tree, it's from a very old long since retired Close To My Heart set called Designer Christmas. I had fun with this sketch and wish I would have photographed all 6 bags but I lost to father time! I hope you have time to play along this week too! Beth aka BR-T

You've made some great pictures of the snow there. And did Igor colour the snow man yet (LOL)?
The hand bag is beautiful and I bet the teachers liked it very much. And you're right about the tree; it's a beauty.
We finally have some snow here too and just on the right time, because the kids have now 2 weeks x-mas holidays :-)
Have a nice weekend,

Hi Beth,
Thank you for sharing these beautiful photographs.
Your bag is fabulous, the teachers will love their gifts.
Yesterday the snow settled here for the first time this season. There's still a bit left this morning.

Thanks for posting the wintry photos. The trees are incredibly beautiful. God is so good! The family looks like they're having fun with the snowman. I'm sure Igor will too. ;) Love that bag you created!

Hi Beth, amazing photographs and I love your long, tall snowman! Great work guys! Love your gift bag, I must photograph the ones that I have made this year as they look quite nice, but not as stylish as yours! Take care my sweet friend, and have a magical Christmas, DJ x

Wow to the photos. It really brought back memories when you mentioned the ice crackling in the trees. Oh how I miss Virginia. I at least put snow on my blog. The snowman is wonderful. This could have been a Christmas card photo if you were in it.

Your gift bag is really neat. I wish I had seen it two days ago, I would have lifted it for sure. You really can't stamp on bags, no matter how hard you mash. At least I have your design for the next bags I make.
Have a blessed Christmas.

First, those pictures of the trees are so beautiful. And what a one of a kind snowman that is. I've never seen one so tall and skinny. I like it a lot.

Second, your gift bag is darling. I'm sure the teachers will love it.

Your snow pics are gorgeos, Beth! It snowed here too. I meant to go take some pics, but I guess I was too warm and lazy inside the house! lol
Your bag turned out awesome! Love how you used the sketch for it! The teachers will love it! When I am finally through school, I look forward to that kind of stuff. You know, the kids and parents who REALLY appreciate everything the teacher does!
Have a great weekend!

These are gorgeous photos Beth. While I don't love the cold, the winter scene is so gorgeous and I love looking out at it. Nothing like fresh snow and ice on the trees. TFS!

The bag is perfect for wrapping that something special!! I bet the teachers loved it. Merry Christmas to you and your family. May the peace and joy of the Christmas season be with you at Christmas and throughout the new year.
Big hugs and blessings,

I love your winter pictures and the snowman is just adorable. The long skinny ones are the best in my opinion because those are the only ones I can really make. LOL.

As for the bag, I really like that tree stamp. I can just imagine how awesome the other bags turned out just from looking at this one. Hope your holidays are magical!!!!
