One more day and ...

Christmas Eve is tomorrow!! I can hardly wait for the festivities in our home to begin!

I have made a little booklet of sorts (don't know what to call it) and I hope you enjoy it.

Belle is going home for Christmas Eve. This image is called Christmas Door. I wanted to make a full scene so I added a few details. That's supposed to be a wooden door but I think it's more gray then white... I think I made a mistake on the floor too.... Icicle is a MS punch, glitter-ified and mounted on 3d foam. All papers are BG Fruitcake. There are glitters on the wreath, tree and poinsettia centers.

Christmas Hearth. This image is just so cute and I love how EB has captured the innocence of childhood. I wanted to make another full scene to match the front cover and have tried to make a wallpaper design. I hope you can see it. I used gold pen for the stripes and stamped long scroll images (cream ink) in between the stripes. The wreath on top of the mantle was cut out from the Christmas door image. I had an accident with the carpet. It was initially green but it looked terrible (grass?) so I cut of the whole lower portion (below the children's outlines) and covered with new paper and colored the carpet pink. Not so sure about the color combo.
Tired from all the waiting and wondering, they both fell asleep.
The wing chair looks shiny IRL because my marker acted up and started coloring shiny... don't know why it happens but I decided to color the whole chair again and liked the shiny effect.
This cute image is called Twas the Night Before Christmas.
The 2 side flaps are actually inserts and you can write on the notecards or put money (spelling corrected - Thanks Marianne!) in the flaps too. Merry Christmas sentiment was printed out from the computer. Always and Believe are stickers from the BG Fruitcake collection.
Kindly leave your name with Mr. Linky below to have a great chance of winning $25 worth of goodies. Winners are all posted on the sidebar.
