Deck the Halls


It's challenge day for the designers over at Lizzie Anne Designs. This month we were challenged to make a paper wreath. Oooooh, this was hard for me! Sometimes, a person can not like a challenge. But other times, a challenge can not like a person - and that's the case with this one. I had four unsuccessful attempts before I finally pieced this wreath together!! My circles were always off, or my papers didn't look good together. It just wasn't happening for me.

I finally sat down on the floor with my sweet baby boy (in his bouncy chair) and my scrap bin, and while we watched Baby Bach (I love Baby Einstein) I cut out circles and embossed them with Nesties and the Cuttlebug. This wreath isn't perfectly round either, but it's close enough. I used images from the Deck the Halls set. And it happens to be on sale!

Be sure to head over the Lizzie Anne Designs blog to see what the other designers created - absolute fabulousness, I promise.  Have a wonderful day!
