12 Days of Christmas #9


Okay - I have been skipping around - you would think I would post them in order - they are numbered after all, but...nah! Why do that!?!? Didn't want to be too predictable!


Challenge #9 was to use at least 9 embellishments on the page. As you will see, I used 12 brads! They're Tangerine sugarcoated brads by Doodlebug! (I love Doodlebug!!) The kit used here is the Apron Strings Designs Smaller Than a Breadbox kit from December, 2007. I actually think these papers may still be available in the store! You can go check by clicking HERE. I think the kit came with 8 brads but I did pull the extra ones from my stash. The only other item that did not come in the ASD kit was the Love U rub ons, which are from CTMH.


Also, challenge #9, also happens to be combined with the weekly challenge over at CropStop.com. The CropStop challenge is to use border dies/die cuts on your project. This is the leafy border die. It's FREE when you buy the 12" cutting plate from the Revolution over at CropStop.com. Obviously I used it a little untraditionally with the striped paper, but I do love how it came out.


And that beautiful picture is my kids! Amanda and Devin - I told them to act like they love each other...and they do...and it's moments like these that I capture that make this hobby (addiction) totally worth all the money and time put into it.


So come back tomorrow, I should be able to continue with the 12 days of Christmas...even though the 12 Days of Christmas are officially over!


As always, thanks for visiting!
