BLUE XMAS - Flying Unicorn

Hello Scrappers,
Id like to share with you today my latest xmas layout.. Im not a fan of red and green.....I tend to go for other colours at when Bo Bunny bought out snowfall a few winters ago I was in heaven.....needless to say its been in my stash since then and I have been real hesitant to use it, cause once you use it, its gone!
I found a gorgeous chippy of Santa with his six white boomers, ( white Kangaroo's) from the famous Australian xmas song...six white boomers! So had to use it!!!!!
I used the dusty Attic xmas tree, and followed a tutorial done by Rachiebabe from SB.COM
I fractured the 3 layers of the tree, gessoed, and used white icicles as the snow drifts and decorated with a few blue and silver POP beads.
My Santa sleigh, I used Versa colour ink, Dimensional magic to give it dimension and Mica fragments.....My Boomers are White ink covered in Starburst stickles...... 
I dont have snow photos, this is Australia and our xmas days are usually over 30 degree I borrowed a picture from google and used that....

Hello Ladies,
While out shopping recently I stopped by the charity store, I love these places, lots
of treasure to be found for not much cash.....and lots of vintage clothes to cut up!
I bought a vintage photo frame from St vincents de paul.....$2 it had no glass....but lovely timber. I made this little canvas using a canvas corp burlap canvas from the FUL store, some embellies from my past kits and a few bits of vintage lace.....once I had the burlap canvas ready, I glued it down to the backing plate on the photo frame, and viola.....ready to hang.....vintage style!

Have  a crafty week!

A Blue Xmas with the Bubbachooka AKA Mish

Hello Ladies, and Welcome to my little post today.....Well Xmas is just around the bend and wow it got here fast this year....
Im not sure everyone is the same, but Im over red and green....I bought myself aa green tree but thats it, everything else is other colours this year.....So id like to share with you a couple fo tags that I have made using my fav scrappy colours, Blue and brown. Yep a Blue xmas!!!!!
This first tag has 8 layers....yep 8. I used a Prima tag that you can find in the FUL store, the 8.5" ones, and added a layer of Prima Journal tag, and some lace, a chippy flourish and frame and topped it off with a wooden Kaiser Reindeer! ITs teal and brown with lots of lace ribbon.....I inked the words in two tone and finished them off with dimensional magic....I used dimensional magic on the reindeer as well.
This next tag is a little more "vintage" I used the same size tag, but this time I used my cuttlebug to cut out the Tim Holtz "Noel 25" and two toned them with inks and dimensional magic again, then I pulled apart a cheap xmas card from last year, ripped off the plastic frame, that had a distinct vintage feel and put a vintage image of xmas underneath.....I topped this off with some little blue Petaloo blooms.....
and lastly I made a little ATC from the scraps on my bench afterwards....I love this old Bo Bunny paper, it was their Xmas release a few years ago and I loved it, Im almost sade to use it....hmmmmm Scrappy Hoarder......thats me.
I hope all you ladies out there have a Scrappy Xmas and find loads of new stash under the tree, and while most of you celebrate in the bitter cold and snow ( ya lucky ducks) think of us Southern Hemisphere Belles sweltering in 40 degree Celcius heat, dishing up cold meats, cold seafood and salads! Hoping like crazy it isnt so hot your flip flops ( we call them thongs) dont melt on the driveway!
