On the 1st day of Christmas

Posted by Picasa Here is my 'First Day Of Christmas' LO for the 12 Days of Christmas challenge, see last post. Thanks again Janine this was heaps of fun to make.

This LO was based around the Christmas Tree, This is a photo I took last Christmas of my Niece & Nephew and our three children. The journalling reads 'This is a beautiful photo taken on Christmas Eve 2005. all of the Cattell Cousins they have had their showers, brushed their teeth, In their PJ's and ready for bed. But just before they head off to dream of what they will find under the tree tomorrow, We took this gorgeous photo. Sweet Dreams Sweet Children'

The Goodies I used are: Basic Grey Printed Paper,Cloud 9 Design chipboard Alpha, Heidi Swapp Blossom, Cardstock, Wild Asparagus tab, and my sewing machine. Oh I think I'm hooked on this bumpy lace look thing too by the way.

Don't forget to have a look at the other LO I did below, I did them out of sequence. Maybe swing by Janines Blog and check out what the other lovely ladies are doing http://angelgurl.wordpress.com/

TTFN Gillian :o)
