Craft Hoarders Anonymous…Challenge 21

Hey Everyone!
It's December 1st and time for another challenge at

Challenge 21
                                                        Celebrate the Season 
Raise your hands if you hoard Christmas or other winter holiday items! Who has a drawer full of "retired" holiday papers and embellishments? Who goes crazy over the candy cane ribbons or the sparkly embellishments? Share a winter or seasonal holiday project with us. We would love to see your Christmas projects, but you may also enter Hanukkah, Kwanza, New Year's, other holiday celebration projects, or any winter-themed projects. Celebrate the season with us!

This is the layout I created for the challenge.
You may not guess but this is a Christmas themed layout.
Last year the little one received a new hat, cowboy boots and walkie talkies.
She spent the entire day with the items on or in her hands.
Watching their joy brings me joy.

I used several Spellbinder dies here;
 Mix n Match Ornaments and Superellipse.
The ornaments created a fun garland across my page.
To bring extra sparkle I painted all of them with Distress Stickles in Tattered Rose.

My title was handwritten and then cut out.

The garland again.

Love my little elf :)
