My 1st Project as a DT at Winter Wonderland




Brrrrr, It is a very cold dismal day here in Edinburgh, Winter has finally arrived, which I suppose is appropriate, as today, I am posting my 1st Project as a DT at Winter Wonderland.  I want to thank you all, again, for all your support and kind comments during the week.   Also I would like to say that Mhairi and Allen's party was FABULOUS, we all had a great night, and I was embarrased with a bunch of flowers, well the tears started, and I am not a teary person, but my All my kids were beautiful, my grandchildren were gorgeous, and here was my daughter giving ME...flowers......I got home about 4am and immediately I was in the house, the cold became a full blown COLD, and I slept most of yesterday, Mhairi and Allen turned up last night, we had a Chinese together, I think they are going to have a great life together.

Winterwonderland want us to make a Candle Holder or Stamp a Candle, I took delivery of some Tim Holtz grunge board, WOW, how fabulous is this ordinary looking stuff.....I had a Yankee Candle from last year that I had not used, so I made a candle holder, I painted the grunge board with Acrylic Paints (don't ask me what colours I used to get the final result, LOL) I made a gold marble effect, (which is not very visible on the on the picture) with gold acrylic and shaving foam.  I moulded it into a holder for the candle and used FF images and gems to decorate.  I finished it off with some ribbon from my stash, Hope you all like it and all take part in our Challenge over at Winterwonderland this week, The DT's who are a talented bunch of girls, that I am in AWE off have outstanding projects to show, so come on girls, pop over and take part.....Love to you all.

Please come back tomorrow, I have some exciting things going on..........have a great Sunday my dear Friends xxxxxx

This is a fantastic creation well done Avril. So glad the party went well.
Re the packaging on my candle. The basic Acetate box was the packaging for a reed diffuser air freshener which I tarted up. I may take it apart and create a template and if I do I'll let you have it. Mind you I've got that much crafting to catch up on at the minute it might have to be for next Christmas.
Love, Pat xx
