Happy Saturday, Everyone!
I hope lots of Holiday Cheer comes your way this weekend! As you may know, I have been playing along with the The Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas 2014 challenge. (Follow this link for the challenge requirements.) Before I get to my week 11 piece, I thought I'd show you how I have worked the printer's tray I have been filling with challenge pieces into my Christmas décor. I couldn't wait for it to be complete to add it!
Here is a closer view of how it fits in its flat wooden box:
As you can see, I already performed a switch, replacing the wine bottle hurricane lantern you see here with the felt tree in the photo above. Believe it or not, neither of them are in this spot today. As I said, I love to play around and rearrange this wall. My family thinks it's a good thing I don't face it during meals, or I would be jumping up to make changes instead of eating!
Linda's Week 11 Inspiration::
Oh so pretty, with the icy turquoise ribbon and bling! I was excited to see the metallic background, as I knew it would balance out some of the other spaces in my tray. Here is my interpretation of Linda's inspiration:
As always, I used my Silver Bullet Pro cutter to cut the sweet prancing reindeer.
I loved finding a place to use the tiny jingle bells that I purchased recently from the challenge sponsor: The Funkie Junkie Boutique I have been pretty diligent this season in not increasing my craft stash, but when I saw these on some of Linda's projects, I just couldn't resist having some for myself. They are seriously the cutest bells ever! I added some vintage embroidery floss from Great Grammie's sewing basket, and some of the holly leaves that were remaining from my week 10 project.
I followed Linda's lead by pumping up the bling by adding some rhinestones to the centers of my embossed snowflake/foil tape/Distress Stained and painted background.
Here is a look at my tray, with the addition of my week 11 reindeer:
I'm loving how it is filling up. I found time in the last couple of days to fill some of the "extra" spaces. Although I don't want to wish away my weekend, I really can't wait to see what Linda has in store for us for week 12! Until then, I have some fun Christmas activities planned. Hope you do, too!
Thanks for checking in!
