2008 Christmas

The current challenge over at Noel Mignon's Challenge Blog, is a holiday theme with lots O' BLING! Unfortunately, I think some of my scrappin' mojo has left town......I fiddled with this LO for hours and finally had to say #%@!! it! Then on top of it, the lighting hasn't been very good for taking pics, so it came out a bit dark. In any event, the picture of my family from last year was at least a good one of all of us. Everyone is smiling and everyone looks good. I used Noel's Dear Santa kit. (sold out) For my bling, I used glittery paper, my homemade snowflakes, rhinestones, and little mirrors for the tree.
......and I incorporated a JustRite stamp into my title! (It was left over from another project, and I have a tendency to save eeeeeeeverything! Call it a sickness!)

My vintage inspired snowflake.......and a glittered heart.

Go ahead, don't leave a comment.....it probably isn't worth a comment anyway! LOL! MAke sure you check out the other DT gals though.....because their projects are Beeeeautiful! : )
***********************************
It's that time of the year at school again, for Santa's Secret Shop. You remember the place don't ya? It's where you go and buy those dollar store finds for everyone on your list. It's where I as their teacher get many earrings, necklaces, and coffee mugs. ( I have LOTS of coffee mugs!) So I gladly accept their sweet offerings and even put on those earrings........and remember what it was like to buy for those you care about. Picking out the perfect gift......even if it does turn your ears green! They are the sweetest........It makes me realize everyday that I picked the right profession. Love those kids.
Have a fabulous Thursday!

Carla said...

This was well worth the time, and clearly a case of you being too hard on yourself. Sometimes when we work with a project for a long time, we aren't reasonable about the outcome.
