December Daily - 1st and 2nd

Here's my first few pages! I'm using a up a lot of my Christmas stash I've had for ages. So its going to be all brands - whatever suits!

Day 1
(which is a double page as it was a biggy day and end to our production for the year, did blur out some names etc :wink: ) One side has flaps and the other side has one photo becoming a pocket and lots of little photos and a ticket etc poked into it. Paige was a 'Blossom' and 'Mr Lizard'

Here's extra detail on the first page (which is the other side of the cover - didnt want to waste space :P ) Hannah was Wardrobe Mistress and did a fabulous job

Last pic before Grandma goes home on the Bus (6 hours!) but she wont miss our production for the world!
Here's the link to the covers and these pages included to keep it all in one place (wink)
A Christmas LO for Scrap Therapy
Here's a festive background using paints and stamps along with some diecuts to embellish...
Miss Maggie Mae!

The Tim Holtz Festive Greenery Die is just wonderful! I love the swirls, the leaves and the mix of shapes to create!

The stamp is Tim Holtz and is a leaf called 'Maple', the ones left in the shop are Oak and Birch both as gorgeous as the one I've used and they are such a great size!

The background paper is Carta Bella, Winter Fun Ice White
Paint has been sponged on lightly by opening the lid and applying to an sea sponge - its Ranger Dabber Red Pepper and a grey paint with the stamp over the top. Looks really messy here doesnt it!

Add the fabby Websters Trim (one of my favourite groups of trims!)
And arrange the diecut leaves and swirls .... all done!
Now with our production over, theatre packed up and sets and costumes stashed away...
I'm on holidays until mid February!!!
Bring on Christmas!
