Lets Get Shabby Challenge # 5 DT Layout

Challenge Number 5 is open today!! yay!!

*This months challenge is to make something must be obvious on the layout.

* It should be the focal point on the layout apart from the photograph.

*You can make more than one handmade embellishment if you wish.

(I think mine is obvious because you certainly wouldn't pay good money for it! lol!)

Here is my take on it: I made a Christmas Tree!

I cut out a tree shape from cardboard and added fringed layers to it, then I applied various types of fake snow...some better than others!! The enamel star at the top is from one of Georgias broken hair clips!

Papers are by Bo Bunny and I white washed the bottom one as it was too bright and not nearly Shabby enough!!

I am sure I'm not the only Mum who loves going around Garden Centres at Christmas to look at all the pretty baubles.....the only difference is I bribe my daughter with a visit to Santa if she behaves! So each year that makes about 4 Santa visits.......ooops!

However the lovely sweet Santa at Pennells remembers her every's a bit spooky! She thinks it's because Santa knows all the children....I wondered if it had anything to do with my Kiwi accent? Maybe it's just the magic of Christmas and we will never know!!

I am chuffed to bits to have scrapped a Xmas layout because my Xmas photos are famous for being rubbish so it's a good job someone else took this Polaroid..although I did have to pay for the privilege..worth every penny!!

Please come and join the fun at Lets get Shabby there are so many talented layouts to view and all the entrants are wonderful scrappers just like you.

PS: You should see the beautiful prize on offer!!

Love and pine-cones

Ruth on first looking the tree hits you, I first of all before reading thought you had been using lolly sticks but on the close up can see the layers very effective and dimensional. Never though to white wash a page to calm the colours down, you always have such good tips.

I saw this on the other site, and fell in love with it!! It's amazing, love all the little details you put into it!! Ih, and before I forget, I use scalloped scissors on my circles, then punch the holes with this tiny little punch I have!! With the scissors, you can draw a line then follow pretty dran close with the scalloped edge!! And on the xmas lo, I used the new Prima lustered leaves, and cut the holy out of one of the Bo Bunny papers!! And thank you so much for the sweet comments!! Wish I didn't have such long hours at work so I could surf the blogs more......I miss doing that so much.........
