Last Saturday was the last crop of the year at Papermaze.
It's always packed with Christmas extras including a challenge kit, stash bingo and this year - 2 make and takes.
I thought I'd be brave and have a go at the Altered art note pad as demonstrated by Carol.
So, with kraft cardstock, paint, ink, stamps and chipboard butterflies we all set to work. I have to admit it was lovely to try something new and I was pleased with the result!
The Christmas crop kit had suitably Christmassy papers from Crate Paper and a lovely mix of embellishments. I added a few little extra bits of red and black.
I usually take some sketches with me on crop day and this one caught my eye on This Blog, designed by Sue aka MiniOwner on UKS.
and here's the layout - rotated and converted to 8.5 x 11 format.
When the girls were small we always had a family photo taken so we could put a photo in with the Christmas cards...this one was taken in November 2000 !
I'm hoping to get a group photo this year.....ready for me to scrap in a few years time!
Thanks for stopping by
Wishing you all a very jolly Christmas and a happy New Year,
