Pile It On #47 - Non-traditional Christmas

Welcome to a new challenge at Pile It On! Our theme this week is Non-Traditional Christmas, either non-traditional colors (no red and green) or a non-traditional image (use a frog instead of Santa, for example). It would be nice to see a mix of both but not required just an idea!

Sponsor is Pink Gem Designs and the prize is 2 regular digis (no sets or custom digis).

Here are the fabulous samples from our team.
