christmas card photo shoot

 I really wanted to make sure that I created a LO for this photo which I used as my Christmas card for 2011 - we had such a fun time together and I love that the final picture we chose, was the location in our backyard that the boys said -  'lets have it on the trampoline, mum'  ♥♥♥♥
So I've created a LO and joined in with the challenge over at Scrap for Help - some of my lovely scrappin' on-line friends are in the design team and they very much inspired me to join in - it's the first time I've done one of their challenges ☺ this month you need to use muslin/bandage on your LO!!
So I've used muslin in the background.
All the papers are Basic Grey - Picadilly Collection and I've made lots of my own bits and pieces on this LO ☺
Here are some close-up's:
 ... a little bunting with twine and little pegs - i've made different shaped tags and flowers using my punches and pattern papers, then embellished with buttons and brads ...
... some Imaginarium chipboard that I've dry brushed with gesso, a rosette flower with a red doily in the background...

Speaking of doilies - it's 10 more days till my Creative Bits clearance sale - I have lots and lots of coloured doilies and I cannot wait to share them with you.  So please stay tuned for more details!
