I've Been Published & My Christmas Tree

Yikes Everyone, I've been published. Check it out, Papercrafts Essentials, 88 along with Bev Rochester and Suzanne McManus.  So exciting.........

I was pleased to be asked by Winnie of Marianne Designs to make 3 projects for the magazine. This is my project 1, Make It Crafty Circular 3D Chipboard Frame.

I'd like to enter my 3D frame into the following challenges:-

Cards and More - Pearls
Flourishes - Non festive colours
Loves rubber stamps - Let it snow
Papertake - Snow white
Sweet Stamps - Sparkle and Bling
LadyAnn's - Anything Goes
ABC - Let it Snow
Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes

And My Christmas Tree is finally up.  I finally got some new lights from Notcutts Nursery.  They have multi settings and are little cones, so cute.  Right now they are 50% and are only £15, so grab yourself a bargain HERE. I decided to change my colour scheme this year so this tree is decorated Tracy style, although it looks alot prettier IRL.  Sorry about the music, this was Hubby's input........

Here's a still picture.

And a close up of the lights in the midst of decorating

If you are shopping at Notcutts look out for this little fellow, the dancing christmas tree.  My sister got him last year and he is hilarious.  He sings, turns around and wiggles his bum.

Hugs Tracy x
