Guest Designer and a New Challenge!

This week I have the pleasure of having Nita T of  Nita Notes as my very talented Guest Designer.  Please visit her blog and see the amazing projects she makes  She writes:

I'm a Canadian girl through and through. I live in Calgary, Alberta with my husband and our 2 children, Abigail (age 8) and Luke (age 5). I'm a stay-at-home Mom and also a Homeschooler, so I keep pretty busy. I have always been "crafty"; cross-stitching has been my hobby since my teenage years, but a couple of years ago I began dabbling in scrapbooking. My Cricut Expression arrived in March of this year as an early Mother's Day/Birthday present from my family. I thought I would use it mainly for Homeschool projects and Birthday party preparations (I LOVE a good Birthday party!). Then I discovered card-making, and a new addiction was born. I love being able to create something personal for someone, to be able to say "I made this with you in mind."

Thanks so much to Linda for choosing my challenge idea! I love Christmas. My family would tell you I'm a bit of a Christmas maniac. So I thought a Christmas in June Challenge would give me an excuse to use my Christmas Cricut Cartridges and my Christmas stamps. :) "

As Nita said, our challenge is CHRISTMAS IN JUNE.  Create a project ie: card, scrapbook page, tags, gift wrap - anything with a Christmas theme so we can get a head start on our Christmas projects!!
Here are Nita's beautiful projects:

I'm a bit of a Christmas fanatic, too. I love to decorate for the holidays, but Christmas requires digging out lots and lots of boxes to do it right. And my sweet fiance, well, can I just say Clark Griswold! LOL I had a ton of fun staying up late to get this challenge completed! Wonderful idea and Thanks!
