your christmas spirit

Happy new year - may it be a blessed and wonderful 2012 for you all!  We have just got back from our two week camping trip - wow - it was such a good holiday - lots of swimming, relaxing, playing on the beach, fishing and so much more.  I'm sure you will be seeing some pictures in my LO's soon ☺
I have my first LO to share for this year - a LO for the January challenge at ARTastic.
 The criteria for this challenge is: clouds, angel embellishment and 2-3 musical instruments.  I have to say that at first I wasn't sure what I could come up with as I didn't have any suitable embellishments in my stash - but I downloaded some clip-art and made up some cute tags to go along with the picture - my little cutie with his Christmas hat!  So all the criteria are included in the tags.  I'm pleased with the end result and love that it's quite a simple page.  Here are some close-up's:
 ... October Afternoon letters and CW chicken wire stencil with mists ...
 ... twine and coloured pegs to display the tags and picture ...
 ... and here is the inspiration picture ... I went with the theme of music - Caden really enjoyed getting into the Christmas spirit this year and loved to listen to Christmas songs.
We'd love for you to join in with this challenge - there's lots of room for interpretation.  Pop over to the ARTastic blog for all the details and further inspiration from the Design Team.
