Holiday Cheer

the second in a series... this Ms. Holiday Cheer is showing her little tushie in faded denim jeans. I used a waterbrush to dilute the ink and make a wash to fill in the jeans. The hat is done with the ever popular and easy to use Stickles product . The Rhinestone frame and Jingle Papers are both by CTMH .

I was out shopping for tombo tonight at the LSS (local scrapbook store) because I am going on a scrapbook retreat with my sister in law and good friend Peggy on Nov. 13. I got some new blades for my Fiskars trimmer, and then started to browse through the store. Lo and behold, I found 12 inch styrofoam cones on sale. So what , you ask? Omygosh I cant wait to make Tracey Mason's paper tree ( ) with Peggy and Bernadette at the chalet in two weeks!

It is an eclectic multi paper tree that reminds me of Tim Burton a bit with the curly tips. You can use leftover paper, it doesnt have to be Christmas themed. I am going to do mine in deep aubergine, browns and golds. I might throw in some olive green. I got 6 cones so I will share with the ladies and make a few extra for gifts. Going downstairs to sort through my papers. See you soon!
