This week over on the Magnolia v Stampavie Challenge Blog the theme is "Xtra Tags". I have hand cut a tag from Bazzill cardstock and added pieces of ripped and distressed Scenic Route & October Afternoon papers. I created the music paper by stamping the Magnolia Silent Night background stamp onto white cardstock and the ripping a section off and distressing with VersaMagic chalk inks in "Wheat" & "Jumbo Java" I then added Tilda as Lucia coloured with ProMarkers using the following colours...
Blush (Wreath in Hair)
Cool Grey 1 (Highlights on white dress)
Pastel Blue (Shadow)
The final touches are a sentiment by Magnolia stamped in chalk ink and distressed, some Stampin' Up Choc Chip Taffeta and a heart pin from my stash. I already have a gift in mind for this tag....obviously one of Georgia's....so that I get it back...LOL
This morning I am back at Georgia's school to take photos of the Year 1&2 school play so that they can be sold at the performances on Tuesday/Wednesday. I am always so nervous about what people will think of the pictures I have taken.....although in the case of the ones last week I sold 107 photos, so I needn't have worried.....I think that may be a record for a school play....I have only ever sold more when it was the Prom photos in the summer. I even got a "Thank You" from the Head Teacher in the school newsletter that went out last week.
**ETA - I am not a professional photographer, strictly an enthusiastic amateur. The school call me their unofficial Official Photographer. One of the Mums of a child in the foundation year is a professional, but she charges, and I do it for free with them making all the money. In the case of the Foundation Year Christmas Play they made in excess of £75 from the 107 photos sold, which means they can fund cooking in class for the next term.**
Apart from processing the pics tonight, I am putting the finishing touches to the Xmas decorations and aslo tidying my craft corner in the lounge....I have a craft room, but like to be downstairs with the family....although I plan to revamp my craft room over the holidays and move back in properly.
Hope everyone has a good Monday, and stays warmduring this cold snap.
