Friday Challenge - My Favorite Things!

Friday, December 20, 2013



Hi everyone, it's Katie here again and you know what that means, time for a new challenge!! It's my turn to host, and I've come up with a fun way to incorporate one of my all time favorite Christmas songs! Are you familiar with "My Favorite Things" from "The Sound of Music"  movie? 


Raindrops on ROSES and whiskers on kittens,

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen MITTENS;
BROWN PAPER  packages tied up with STRINGS;
These are a few of my favorite things.

CREAM-COLORED ponies and crisp APPLE strudels;
Doorbells and sleigh BELLS and schnitzel with noodles;
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their WINGS;
These are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with BLUE SATIN sashes;
SNOWFLAKES that stay on my nose and eyelashes;
SILVER-WHITE winters that melt into springs;
These are a few of my favorite things.


When the dog bites,When the bee stings,

When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my FAVORITE things,
And then I don't feel so bad. 
So the challenge this time is to use any combination of these words as part of your layout or project, at least 3 must be used.I have underlined 12 words since it is the 12th month of the year. For example, the color cream, Angel 'wings' and roses. I can already think of some yummy combinations!! Have fun and we can't wait to see what you create! 


Here is the layout I have completed for this challenge. It was fun to use some non-Christmas y papers and turn them into a festive winter layout with a non traditional color palette.  I also took a lesson from Sundays with Sandee and did some handwritten font for part of my title :) I hope you will join us this time and share your project s on our facebook page too, we can't wait to see what you create!!! I have some close up, detailed photos on my blog!
