Festive Plaque and Photos

 Hello friends
First of all important news of an amazing Spellbinders contest - it is Explore Beyond -
create a project and be in with a chance to win so many goodies
(it is the biggest contest Spellbinders have held to date).
All the details are here.
Go on - have a go...
Today's crafty offering is a festive plaque.  This is what we created in one of the classes.
We used Echo Park -  A Very Merry Christmas paper pad - love these designs.
As you can see - Frosty Forms and Layered Poinsettia seemed to be a permanent 
fixture on my craft desk right now! 
I chose to print the message on to patterned vellum - it works really well.
 A close up - I added some little charms, lace, ribbon, chipboard swirl, stars...
I intend to create a plaque for each season so classes on their way.
Back and in the swing of crafting now following my lovely weekend away.
Chatsworth House is truly gorgeous - this year for Christmas they have themed rooms, 
each one depicting a pantomime. Peter Pan....
 Every Christmas tree was themed too ...
Now to something that made me laugh....
A tag tree!  You collect a coloured tag, scribble your message and place it on the tree -
I've rotated the photo so you can see my message.
And here is a shot of the tree - an absolute photo faux pas!! 
I normally check what is behind the object I am photographing....! Oops!
Back tomorrow friends.
Take care.

Hi Christine. Glad you had a lovely time on your trip. Your photo faux pas made me chuckle on my birthday. I am having the day off to play with all my new toys - that's if my wish list was fulfilled! I love the tag and that's what I hope to make some of today. Then all I need to do is buy the presents to wrap and fix the tags to! Ju

Morning Christine love the tag tree think you need one in your new studio/ shop all year round that all your guests can write on then you could do a prize draw at the end of the year. Lovely photos and the plaque is gorgeous too xx

Morning Christine
Love your Christmas plaque, your faux paux certainly made me laugh which is amazing seeing as I've been up several times in the night to guess who? Yes we got our mini labradoodle on Friday we called him Brody. When I have taken some descent photos of him I will email them to you.
