Trimmed up at Last!!

Well I've finally got some decorating done so I thought I'd show you my living room....

Here's the tree. As you can see I don't like fussy trimmings and we havn't got all the pressies under there yet!


Here's the fireplace all ready to light with our stockings hung - all so very hopeful!


Here's the view out of the window, I'm hoping that Santa lands on our roof!


And now a quick pic of the whole room........... well not quite!



How many stamps, Embossing folders, die cuts can you spot? I started making this last year but became disheartened when it was turned down for publication in Craft Stamper but I've gotten over my fragile ego and really enjoyed finishing it off particularly as it is a present for a special someone...........

Merry Christmas everyone - now I'm off to put the real trimmings up!

Oh Miochelle that is so sweet. Craft Stamper's loss if you ask me.

Wow Michelle, what an amazing piece of work! You must have the patience of a saint. Can't understand why it was turned down for publication but if they had you wouldn't have been able to show it to us on your blog and we wouldn't be able to leave our comments. I think it's totally stunning and I keep having to flick up and down the photos to see what else I can spot ............. even my OH has just looked over my shoulder and said 'Blimey, that's clever'.

Whatever will you think up next my friend?

Hugs
Lesley Xx

I must admit I did a double take, I thought that's out of a magazine, then thought no that's out of a dolls house - what a shame Craft Stamper turned it down - totally there loss - thanks for sharing and I'm sure the recipient will love it!

Amazing work Michelle, so many hours must have gone in to this piece. You have so much talent, not to mention patience. I haven't bought CS recently, as think it's a bit same-y.
