This is it !!!





This is the canvas with all the new Twiddleybitz, the chandalier, the candlesticks, and the frame (that I used as a mirror). There was more new releases...but not everything would fit on my one canvas.
If you cant read the quote...it says...."If Christmas is not in your heart, you wont find it under the tree."
Quite true I think !!! I have another project to show you next time....and I cant wait to get hold of some more of those
new release Twiddleybitz...I have an idea......or two....

My favorite things book..Part 2

Posted by Picasa

This is a little Twiddleybitz tabbed book, that I did show some sneak peeks of awhile ago. And as I have nothing else i can show you YET...I thought you might like to see the rest !!! It was a little book I did for my daugter, Sophie. She happens to be very photogenic, and just loves to have her photo taken.....
Its just a little book for her to look back, and remember what some of her favorite things were, at this age !!! The papers were doodlebug designs...and just BEAUTIFUL...
I still cant work out why I can only post 4 pics through Picasa..????

I've also added some prima flowers...a little nest made from wire and raffia....and a bird to sit on the nest !!! This was great fun to make...I cant wait to make another...maybe a different color scheme ??
