Artastic and FS2S



The criteria for Artastic this month was a snowman,a cHristmas tree and the word cHristmas. I made my snowman from 2 lace doileys cutting out the centre of the second one for the head.His nose is one V of ricrac.The remainder of the embellishments are from kaisercraft.This was Christmas 2005 when we went to a restaurant for Christmas lunch.

The criteria for From Screen to scrap was white cardstock,a 2 colour title and Christmas hats.
My photo was taken on the same day as the first layout featuring my nephew Nathan with his new baby daughter, Annabelle.Both he and Jonathan are wearing Christmas hats.The journalling is inside the fancy envelope at the bottom.

that's a clever little snowman and he/ she looks great on your backing paper choice. Like you, I'm still scrapping photos from a few years ago.
cheers

A doily snowman, now that is clever Julene...& he is such a sweetie too!
Great LO & it is fab to scrap our older photos, I have heaps to do as well.
I love the page inspired FS2S - great envelope. They work out so well as a double page too.
Thanks for playing along with us at both ARTastic & FS2S.
