Kaboodle Doodles' Challenge #147 is "Stripes and/or Polka Dots". You could submit any project as long as it fits the challenge theme. Winner to be drawn randomly with sponsor prize of 3 images from Pink Gems Tues, December 4, 2012 at US timezone. Participants have until Sun., December 2, 2012 to link their entries at the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog.

I made use of polka dotted cloth as my gift wrapping and a striped red & green ribbon as finishing touch for this week's challenge at Kaboodle Doodles:

I thought of coming up with Christmas treats or should I say gifts to my Filipino scrapbooking team at FSCB.  They're cute and adorable items some made from China & the pop tapes from UK found at Rustan's.  This came with a challenge to make use in their LOs for next term with FSCB.  I hope they like my small token of welcome and greeting of Christmas with these small scrappy gifts.  Please don't tell.  =)
