Scrapmatts December Challenge

This month's challenge at Scrapmatts is all about the 12 days of Christmas.

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Twelve drummers drumming,
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree!

The challenge is to create anything you like: card, ATC, layout, or even an OTP project. Base it around one of the days or if you want create the whole 12 days, just as long as it has a Scrapmatts chippie on the creation.  You have until the end of the month to enter and the winner will receive a $25 voucher to purchase some yummy Scrapmatts chippies.  Check out this link HERE to see what the amazingly talented Design Team created.

11 Pipers Piping

This is my interpretation of 11 Pipers Piping.  I found an old pic of Brittany on stage at her Year 5 Christmas Concert playing the recorder and thought it would go perfectly with this theme.  I used a Scrapmatts music frame which I backed with pp, embossed and highlighted with silver in, then used some Tim Holtz green stickles to make the frame sparkle.  I also used some of the Scrapmatts music notes chippies which I altered with red Tim Holtz stickles.  And of course had to add a yummy cluster of flowers to which I added some sweet snowflakes charms available from my2angels.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving some love.  Your comments really make my day :))
