NEW Christmas page

Hi everyone......I know I know I have really slacked on the blogging. Does anyone else use the excuse that its because of the holidays, because that is my story and Im sticking to it.......
Anyways, wanted to post a new page that I did for the Hens Den
You must check out the store, Charlie carries some awesome products.
One of the lines that she currently has is the G45 Christmas Emporium Collection.
What a fabulous line this is. I loved working with it. You can check it out HERE

I did this page with this line and wanted to share it with everyone.

The picture is of me and my girls Sadie and Mia. I bought them as a surprise for my kids back in October 2009. Both of my kids had been bugging me for a puppy so on the hunt I went, well not only did I get one but I got two. Both of my kids named the dogs, and although I say that I got them for the kids, they have become my girls.
This picture was taken in November of 2009.

We stuck big red bows around their
Here is a description of my lay out:

I mounted the picture with some of the G45 paper, and distressed the edges a bit. I then added ribbon around the pp paper and a bow in the corner.
I added another layer of paper and then used a couple of the Emporium tags one each corner and at the top. Mounted the top tag with some cute bling brads.
I sewed the ribbon to the side to make a cute border and added a few little Chrismas flowers that I had in my stash. Again adding some more brad bling to the center of the flowers. The brad bling in the center flower is Bazzill Button Vintage Helene which is also found in the Hens Den store.

I then added some more Emporium tags to the border.

The top boarder is also using the pp, and then I cut out the little cut out from Santa Express sheet that comes with the paper line and I pop dotted them on the paper.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peak, and please head on over to the Hens Den and check out her fabulous store.

Also DEC 15th we will be announcing the new DT members, and there will be a lot of NEW things happening beginning in January, so stay tuned....EXCITED EXCITED EXCITED!!!!!!!!
