O Star of Wonder...

Wow, having my own blog is encouraging me to scrap more often, I should have done this a long time ago...

So my 5 yr old got his very own tree for his room when we got the tree for downstairs (it was at Walmart for $20) so after two trees, two sets of ornaments, two tree skirts and one star for the top (we still can't find one we like for ours), and FIFTY FIVE Christmas cards, our total was $200 even. We were shocked but at least this year it'll look like Christmas around here.

So today's wordart is lyrics once again, but this time from a Christmas carol. I actually made the wordart for the page instead of the other way around. I figured this would work for many uses, not just tree topper LO's. Download it here if you want it.

Credits for LO go to the Walking in a Scrappy Wonderland crew: papers and star stitches come from Vicki's part; staple, curly ribbon (recolored) and green string came from Linda, and the blue ribbon came from Mel. The tabs came from Vicki's Candy Dream kit, the old photo "look" also came with Vicki, but it wasn't in a kit.

I didn't realize until I signed into 4Shared that the jpg for the My Favorite Things word art looks bad flattened, if you want the PS version, let me know and I'll send it to you. If you can't use the PS version, I can send you the shadows and the text separately, just ask.

I just wish it felt more like Christmas. Mother Nature needs to figure out if she wants to make us sweat or freeze us out and stop changing her mind. 65+ is not December weather.

Until I get more creativity,
