A great day crafting..........

Stampin' Up! 's Holiday Mini has a great advent calendar and like all good 
SU fans/demos, we just had to give it a try!


We were busy, all of us cutting, stamping, embossing,
tying jingle bells and punching all kinds of things.


 The lay out was coming together.  We had an overall picture in the mini to go by with some slight alterations because of limited designer paper.  (Okay, we I used some at my last retreat, forgetting we had this day scheduled and needed the two packs I had purchased!  My fault but my friend, Erica, had another Christmas set of DP from SU that worked its way into our layouts just fine.)


 Then we had the dueling camera phones.........to get all the action.


 Laresa was making two, she had a task ahead of her.  But she kept at it!


 Several hours later, at home and after a dental appointment, I actually put the finishing touches on mine.  Framed and ready for display.  Not perfect, but what handcrafted project is......I was happy I had taken on a project of this magnatude.  It's probably the largest papercraft project I've ever tried!
