Paper: DCWV - Stack 8 (stripe); The Paper Studio - Four Seasons (green dot) & Affinity (teal)
Sticker is from my stash. When I first started scrapbooking, I never thought I would ever share it therefore, I threw all packaging away to remove the clutter. Now, I try to make sure I give credit to all of the amazing companies and designers who come up with this awesomeness.

This one is a work in progress but I love this technique! Maybe I will finish it by December LOL Need to figure out what to do with the tree trunk.....not really diggin' it right now. Any suggestions?

Thanks a million for hopping along with us! I have some Christmas goodies in my stash that I want to give away to 1 of my sweet followers. Just leave a comment and check back here on Wednesday to see if you are the winner!!  Let me be the 1st to wish you a very Merry Christmas this year!!!
