This week at Totally Gorjuss we were challenged to create a
Childs Christmas Thing
I really wanted to make a 3D project but I seriously lost my mojo. My original project was going to have paper pieced snowmen or santa's. Problem being paper piecing and I really have a love hate relationship.
So..Instead I made a 3D box and embellished it with a vintage feel poinsettia, doily and tag and added a glass ornament that I had filled with gold shimmer glitter. I am smiling at how different my concept began and how it finished. There is not a hint of paper piecing to be found.
My box will contain the ornament and a whole array of sweet treats for a lucky child, either from my own family or a family friend. Sometimes presents are just a little bit more special when they come in special wrapping or boxing, don't you think?
We are happily sponsored by Bugaboo this week, have you seen their delightful digital stamps?
They have a freebies section where you can try a stamp before buying more. So easy to print out, colour and create. The freebies can be found here and they are updated regularly.
Please head on over to Totally Gorjuss Challenges and link up your creations, visit the other DT blogs and read more about Bugaboo. Have fun, I look forward to seeing what you create
before I sign off completely, my eldest daughter had her end of year farwell last week. here is a snapshot of the evening. She looked stunning as did everyone else, a credit to their school and to them all as a friend group.
and finally... my new housemate. I just couldn't resist his beautiful little face (and my husband even gave me permission to get him) he is a terror when awake and oh so cute when asleep.
