Playing with Canvas

With Christmas fast approaching and a family Birthday/Christmas gathering this Saturday, I thought I had better get in gear for these homemade holiday gifts! In the summer, I celebrated my 40th birthday and we had a little get together. My nieces and nephew had more fun playing with these tortoises than you can believe and they were so happy to see something new and different - just look at Maddie's smile! So I decided to make them canvass layouts for Christmas. I even tried my "Smooch" sprays for the first time to create a colored background! Here's Maddie's .. 

And I'll be back later to show you Hayden and Bella's! Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it, especially during this busy time!

Challenges Entered:
Penny's Challenge #158 - Fav Technique and/or color (love pink and love using smooches!)

What a great page. Your lay-out and embellishments are wonderful and the colors worked well together. So glad you joined us at Word Art Wednesday this week. A Blessed CHRISTmas to you and leaving you with the Word of God in 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 which tell us, "May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word." Hugs, always!
