12/15/14 - CPC: "Lite-Brite"

Happy Monday to you, my Bloggy Peeps!
I am in an amazingly great mood this Monday morning because... I am on vacation all week!
Whoo-hoo! ::proceeds w/ Happy Dance::
I always take a week off around Christmas so that I can get last minute Christmas stuff done as well as spend some time w/ my kids when they are on Christmas Break from school.  Well, this year only one is technically on "Christmas Break", the other is all grown up, graduated,  and a working man...but my being home allows me to squeeze in some quality time w/ him as well.
To kick off my awesome week, I am sharing the current challenge over at "Child's Play Challenges".
The inspiration for this challenge is the childhood toy "Lite Brite": 
I was inspired to scrap photos of the evolution of our decorated Christmas tree in 2013, which included lots of lights (click on image to enlarge):
"Cut, Fluff, Decorate, Done"
You have until the end of the month to link up a project inspired by this CPC challenge or the challenge we presented on 12.01.14.
Besides the "CPC" challenge, I was also inspired by the following:
"Use your Stuff" challenges require you to use stashed items: everything on my layout, except the alphas is over a year old ( all the papers are approximately 10 years old).

Now I need to bring the 'party down a bit by sharing a some bad news: this is CPC's final challenge.
The blog is closing down after this month.
It's sad when good things come to an end, but sometimes that's just the way it goes.
I hope you have enjoyed the inspiration CPC has provided over the years... I know I have and I will miss being a part of it.
