Guest Designer: Sketchy Thursdays - 15 December 2011 - Bear-y Christmas

Can you believe it, we're counting down to the last 10 days before Christmas??  Wow! The days do whiz by when you're having fun! :)

So, I am here again for another Sketchy Thursdays LO post.  This is the third one for my December GDT stint with them.  And I am really enjoyed creating this one.  The sketch is really versatile and I hope you'll have as much fun playing with it as I did! :)

I titled it Bear-y Christmas.  Here it goes...

The photos I used were taken over the weekend at an early Christmas Dinner with some of our dear Cookie friends at The Fullerton Hotel here in Singapore.

Here are some close up shots for  you...

Are you liking the "ribbon Christmas tree"? I thought that is a cool idea and very much fitting for this sketch! I glued green and red ribbons back to back and just went zigzag when applying the strip on my LO.

Here's the title and journalling...

The journalling reads...

"The Fullerton Hotel just has the most adorable Christmas display this year.  The huge tree they have on the lobby entrance is adorned with their signature Teddy Bears!  We just couldn't help but snap some photos of it.  And of course, we had our photo taken with it, too!"
