With the Holidays coming up, the next challenge is to create a lay-out about your favourite Holiday tradition. It can be any Holiday you celebrate and any tradition you like.
Here are some gorgeous examples from our DT:-
Every year it is a tradition in our houshold, to have a Christmas Photo Shoot with silly Christmas hats, reindeer antlers or elf ears.This year, we welcome Caden to the mix ! These are just some pics I did for practice. I am hoping to get one of both my boys together !
Our annual Christmas party, where my kids, their cousins, and a few of their good friends will gather on the staircase for a group photo. Nice way to keep track of how much the kids have grown year on year! The flower on the bottom right is actually attached to a hidden journaling tag behind the photo.
Muslims celebrate the festival of Aidilfitri, popularly known as 'Hari Raya' (Day of Celebration) to mark the culmination of Ramadhan, the holy month of fasting. On our 1st day of Raya, we usually go to my mum's house and eat delicacies such as 'ketupat' or rice cake and a meat cuisine called 'rendang' which are among the most famous cuisines that are served during this day. We normally had our makeup done there as it was the earliest hour in the morning and I really love this day!
Please upload your LO's to our gallery, leave us a link in the comments or e-mail them to Butterflycrafts1@aol.com by 30th Dec to be in with a chance of becoming our January guest designer.
We look forward to seeing your creations.

Just thought I would let everyone know a little bit about how the 'Butterfly Crafts' challenge blog will work.
We will be setting challenges on the 1st and 15th of every month (starting Dec 1st)and everyone will have until the end of the month (around the 30th)to complete their lay-out's and either upload them to our gallery, e-mail a copy to me at Butterflycrafts1@aol.com or post a comment with a link to your work.
After the closing date I will pick my favourite lay-out from the months entries and that person will become our 'Guest Designer' for the following months '15th' challenge.
Hope this makes sense, if not please feel free the send me any questions.
I hope you will join us on Dec 1st for the first challenge!!!

I've been scrapping for about 3yrs now. I got into card making first after making all my own wedding stationary. Then after the wedding I was looking for a way to show off all the wonderful photos we had taken, so while on Honeymoon to Boston I brought a US scrapbooking magazine and fell in love with it straight away. As soon as we got back I searched the Internet for scrapping sites and started buying stash.
My other hobbies include photography, reading and chatting with new friends online.
I'm so excited to start Butterfly Crafts and hope it with be a fun site for everyone.
Sue (AKA Sue Em) - Norway
I'm Sarah, and I'm 24. I live in the sunny (most of the time) state of California. Currently, I'm a student; after graduating from UC Davis with a double major in Sociology and Psychology, I've decided to go back to school to pursue a career in nursing. Scrapbooking has always been a part of my life since my high school days, but it has recently become an everyday activity (aka. addiction)! On top of being a hobby, it helps me relax and relieve my stress. Besides, the best part about scrapping is there is no right or wrong way to do it, so I can never make a mistake at something I love! If I'm not scrapbooking, I'm probably shopping for scrap supplies or enjoying the fresh air at the beach. I don't have any children, but I have two pets — Maui, a white Miniature Schnauzer, and Hoshi, an orange tabby. If I'm not scrapping my family or my friends, I'm scrapping my "kids".
I am passionate about scrapbooking, and I love trying new techniques and products ! I have been scrapping for about 4-5 years, and am totally hooked !
I love scrapping my boys, my friends and my family, and, I am particularly fond of heritage scrapping !
I am looking forward to my role here at Butterfly Crafts, and providing ideas and inspiration to scrap your passions !
Hello! I’m Victoria Murray, although no one ever calls me Victoria (except my Mom, when I was four and in trouble!)…so call me Vicki, please! I’ve always been a creative person; I even had my own jewellery studio until my daughter was born. I’ve recently started working part time a jewellery boutique. I live in Toronto with my husband, five year old daughter and our guinea pig.
I discovered scrapbooking almost four years ago at a home party and it felt like a match made in heaven. Scrapbooking is now my passion and my family is my inspiration. I love experimenting with new techniques and ideas. I work in traditional, digital and hybrid methods. I've been lucky enough to have been published a few times and have made some great friends, all thanks to this hobby. I’m so excited to be on the design team here!
Nina - PhilippinesHi! My name is Nina and I'm totally psyched to be part of Butterfly Crafts! I'm 30 years old, a stay-at-home to a four-year-old boy and living in the Philippines. I'm into scrapbooking, altered art and stamping. If you want to check out my blog, it's at http://www.creatinginsolitude.blogspot.com/. I'm so looking forward to having fun with you all!
Samantha - CanadaHi there. My name is Samantha and I own a scrapbook store in the beautiful city of Montreal, Quebec. I've been scrapbooking for over five years and have loved every moment of it. Here in Montreal I have appeared doing workshops on CBC, and Global TV's this morning live and have had my work published in Legacy and Canadian Scrapbooker. I look forward to sharing my work with you and being part of the Butterfly Crafts DT!

I'm a big fan of movie's so one challenge might be ' Design a LO using your fav movie as inspiration' so I might use a movie name as my LO title or the colours from the DVD sleeve, anything as long as it relates to that movie.
Hope this helps explain it a bit more?
