Merry Xmas **TCR 88 - Scrap That! **

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE SCRAP THAT! BLOG HOP GO HERE!


Happy Sunday everyone! WOW only 2 more weeks until Christmas…and it is gonna fly by, it does every year! Funny story behind this photo of my daughter and grandson on Santa’s knee. It was supposed to be just my grandson but he did not like Santa at all…so mommy had to sit on Santa’s knee too hehe…and just look at him, he looks so sad in this photo. BUT check out the Santa…holy we think he was the real deal…he sure looks like the real Santa to me J I hope Kenzie told Santa I have been good too …hehe J Ok so on with my layout! I have used this weeks palette from The Color Room and the Pion Design papers are from Scrap That! I did lots of masking, distressing, machine stitching, and inking on this one.


I just love the Dusty Attic chippys that I used and made them look like snow covered trees with molding paste and then I added some stickles to them.

Here you can see the machine stitching, and gorgeous Prima blooms mixed in with more DA swirls. I have used more molding paste on the chippys to make them have more dimension.  Just look at that sad face awwwww!

 I did some masking and lots of inking on this layout. Here is a close up of the distressing and stitching as well.

Ok well that is it for now. I will be back a couple of more times this week to show you more projects that I have done lately..including my first time at altering a canvas! Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic week.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J

Mr Santa sure looks the genuine thing!! I think it says it all; waiting and longing to meet Santa but then everything becomes soooo overwhelming. Good thing Kenzie got to sit on his knee :)) Wonderful misting/masking and love your beautiful chippy treatment. This really is such a pretty page Shona!! xoxox
