This is my entry for the Scraplounge technique challenge for December. The challenge was to use string with Christmas papers and a non-Christmas photo. The papers are from the Kaiser Christmas range and the embellishments including the little charms are from my2Angels. The photo is the Capstick family at Hamner Springs in NZ.

Looking for Fairies

Here is Samantha going into the glen..looking for fairies? I have been experimenting with stamping and masking but still have a lot to learn.

Grandad's Garden

It's that time of the year again when life gets really busy but I have made time to complete the sketch challenge for Scraplounge as the ladies who run the site are really awesome and committed so I like to support them. This is the sketch and the challenge was to use Christmas papers with non-Christmas photos.
And this is my take using a laser cut tree and papers from Kaiser. The buttons have been made by me using the " imaginisce" button coverer/maker. The photo is my Great niece Samantha, in my brother-in-laws beautiful garden in Christchurch NZ.
