I have worked on this long and hard. And I finally completed it today. It is a Sign to go outside of my Craft Room Entrance. It says Mom's Workshop (like Santa's Workshop) and of course its decorated with all Christmas Themes. And I just luv it. I am entering it into a bunch of Challenges on different Blogs. This took so much work and effort. Especially the hand beading. Check out below for some Close Up Images. For whatever reason all my Zoom Out Shots came out pretty blurry. But the close ups came out pretty decent.

The Base for This Project is a Cookie Sheet. I Modge Podges Some Christmas MME Papers on to it. Used some left over white swirl ribbon from my Wedding on the edges. And then hand sew'd Green Beads on the edge where the Paper Met the Ribbon (this took me forever and a sore neck) I almost didn't want to use the tray as a base anymore once it was done. It was so Pretty LOL.
The Ribbons are cut from Super Thick Chipboard off left over Paper Stacks. I used my Cutter Bees Scissors (they Rock)

Everything On this Project was in my Stash, thats the best Part. The Paper is more recent (black friday Micheal sales 50% off paper stacks + 25% off total purchase, i got 10 different stacks)

  5. Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response .

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time
