Blog Challenge Theme: Holiday Children

It's that time of year again -- time for gratitude and joy, food and family, tradition and celebration, thankfulness and hope. Autumn leaves, holly berries and mistletoe, turkey and pumpkin pie (and pecan pies at my house!) and then later cookies and candies, gingerbread and peppermint, the smell of cinnamon and evergreens... yes, I love this time of year!

For many people, one of the best things about Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah are our memories of childhood celebrations and the fun of seeing our own children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, enjoy the magic of this season. It's wonderful to see the holiday season through the eyes of a child. So let's have fun creating with images of Holiday Children.

There are so many wonderful vintage images of girls and boys. We have hundreds in our collection of Victorian and Edwardian era holiday postcards -- for Christmas and New Years on Victorian Holidays One and for Thanksgiving (and Halloween too!) on Victorian Holidays Volume Three. I've used a few on some charming digital collage sheets for holidays. The Lunagirl Moonbeams Design Team feature some of them below.

Here are the guidelines for this challenge:

  • Any craft or medium is OK.
  • Limit of 3 entries from one person in each challenge, please.
  • Vintage style is encouraged.
  • Use a Lunagirl image or element and your entry will count twice in the drawing!
  • Remember to link to this blog and to on your site if you have one.
  • Prize:  Winner will be selected randomly to receive a $15 credit at!
  • Challenge ends at noon CST on December 7.
  • I love it when you use Lunagirl images, and I hope you'll go take a look at my collections... but that's not a requirement!  But do remember that if you use a Lunagirl image, you will be entered TWICE in the drawing! I welcome everyone and every style but also want to give a little something extra to my wonderful customers! Most important is have fun, get creative, enjoy vintage. 

    And don't miss the creations of my Design Team below, for your enjoyment and inspiration!


    Isn't this a lovely tag by MICHELE STORMS?

    The little girl image is from the Lunagirl digital collage sheet Victorian Christmas. The Christmas birds are from Christmas Birds & Holly.

    VICKI ROMAINE created these two cards with a straw background ... the first one, which is a "gate" card with the image attached to the left side of the gate, is for our Holiday Children theme. But I've included the second one (a stand-up card) to show how she created two entirely different-looking cards with the same supplies! (The vintage images are from Lunagirl Thanksgiving digital collage sheet.)

    1. Great design team samples. I love the images the ladies chose to create with. Thanks for the holiday children theme this week. It will be so much fun to play!

    2. Beautiful job ladies. I'm so glad that I have the opportunity to enter into your current challenge. If I time it right, I might just get a second entry in.
