"Let's get shabby" this month wants you to scrap a favourite Christmas carol.I went for Frosty the snowman,a family favourite.
The Graphics 45 picture of a snowman with a small angel/boy/cupid is surrounded by a chipboard frame from scrapmatts.I lightly inked it with white.The doiley and fabric flower and dotty flourish, give it a touch of Christmas red and green.The lace is antique from my great grandmothers stash and the satin ribbon with birds is as old as me(56).I curled to top of the sheet music but it flattened in the scanner.

Scrapmatts have lots of exciting chipboard for Christmas too.Go on over and check it out.I love the reindeers with curly antlers.
I was inspired by something I saw in an old Kaisercraft magazine.This is a christmas card I made using a rhinestone tree.It is just right with the other tree I made and tiny bird.
In other news my daughter has completed her CIT course in garment construction and went before an interview panel from the fashion industry yesterday to assess her dressmaking skills. She received a distinction.Here is the dress she made.These are front and back views with the card in between.LOL

so I did this layout.The transparency flourishes were sent to me from Amanda via my win on artastic.The cut out flowers are from Bella "Delightful life" papers.
I've gone a tad crazy on butterflies lately.In this case it represents Thena's efforts at flying.
Now I'm off to do my challenge for A2Z scraplets
I used a beautiful lace butterfly that I bought last weekend at the Papercraft festival.It is from a shop called Art Stamps where I used to work.The crochet lace flowers were dyed (see a previous post) by myself and match this salmon pink paper nicely.The rub ons featuring cupid's arrow also added to the mood of this layout as did the playing card.

I've also put a close up picture of the doiley/butterfly detail.
The "Lucky" picture on the left was done at the Papercraft festival as a make and take.First you place chipboard butterflies over card then spray mist them ,making a mask.Then flowers are punched from paper and scrunched.Several layers are added together with a brad.Lightly ink the branch shape with distressing ink and add a leaf and a backing sheet of paper.A photo will be added on to this,just tucking the corner under the flower

I used Sassafrass lass papers plus another piece of the floral fabric I bought at Vinnies.The lace doiley,painted edging strip and cotton eyelet lace add more decorative edges.The lace doiley echoes the curve of the bridge in the photo.
