Christmas tree album

I made this Christmas tree album for a challenge over at Ch{all}enge Masters under the altered category. Once Christmas is here I will take lots of pictures so I can complete the album. I had so much fun making this. There was alot to file. The wonderful thing was that my Basic Grey file set worked perfect for all of the little areas that I needed to file. The paper I used is My Minds Eye Colorful Christmas. I added a little stickles to the star to make it shine, and fell in love with the big ornament. Hope you enjoy! Don't forget to capture all of your Christmas moments on the camera to complete you altered Christmas book for the challenge.
Happy Holidays,

Me & My girls

I did this layout for the design team over at Posh Designs. I tried to use something I would not normally use. Something out of my comfort zone. I used Websters Pages paper, stickers, and journaling card for this one.

This is a desk top calender I made for next year. First I painted around the edges of the frame and the edges of the numbers. I used transparency sheets for the numbers. The numbers will just flip over the top. The months are held on by velcro so that it can be changed easy. The nice thing about this is at the end of next year I don't have to get a new calender!!
