Christmas Cutie

Hello! Today I have a layout that I've done based off the Creative Scrappers #237 sketch and combined it with Frosted Designs 12 days of Christmas challenge day 5 which required you to use 5 gold things on your project. Here is the sketch:
And my layout:
I found these photos of Makara when she was just three years old. She went through a phase where if you told her to smile she'd start making funny faces instead- very hard to get good photos. For this layout I used some of the Basic Grey "Wassail" collection. Slowly I'm using up all my older stash. On the background I used molding paste and a mask, then applied glitter while it was still wet.

For my 5 gold things I've used: gold bells, gold berries, gold liquid pearls, gold ink, and a gold sticker in the upper left corner.

For the Christmas chipboard I used "Red Velvet" Tattered Angels', then heat embossed them. Then to dress them up a little more I swiped them using "Ruby Slippers" Stickles with my finger.

Thanks for coming by and allowing me to share with you. Hope you have a great day!
