This week, we're being sponsored by

Creations by AR is owned and operated by Adela Rossol, a stay-at-home Mom of two teenage daughters.  Her shop includes digital stamps and cut files, alterables, and a HUGE assortment of unique templates.  She's even got a challenge blog and some freebies for those of you who would like to give her goodies a try.

The team and I were lucky enough to play with some of her amazing templates this week.  Our challenge is "Jingle All the Way" - Use jingle bells on your holiday project.

Here's what we came up with...
Becky used the 3D Fireplace template and put jingle bell images on her sentiment. 

Lisa used the Brownie Box template and added metal jingle bells to her ribbon.

Kerry also used the Brownie Box template but used a jingle bell stamp.

MacKenzie (that's me) used the Haute Tote template and added mini jingle bells to the handles.

Now it's your turn to "Jingle All the Way"!
