Christmas 1957

Today, a layout for White with 1, the colour this month is Green Flash.
I went for a flash of Green using Dylusions paint applied onto the white cardstock. 
The photograph is of my sister (left) brother (middle) and me (right) taken at a Bebarfalds store either in the city of Sydney or maybe Ryde where they had a store. That company is long gone.  I have put the photo into a Memory Protector Flip Flaps from Close to My Heart as the back of the photo has some interesting facts.
Don't  you just love the name Smiling Snaps.  The writing is our mothers and it was given to our paternal grandparents for Christmas 1957. 
My sister and I were as children always dressed alike - we did not mind - our mother made all our clothes.
Under the flap I have put some information:
I hope you enjoy seeing this 'blast from the past'.  Thank you for looking, Margaret

Reindeer Die Cut card

Today I made this cute little card, I was inspired by a challenge over at Soul Scrappers to use a reindeer and die-cut.  Well, I covered both of these with this cute die.
I used a free die that was included in Di-cutting essentials magazine, which is probably still available at your local newsagency.  I had the background patterned paper I used in my stash - it has a design of trees on it.  Yes, appropriate.  I did die cut the tree in the cardstock and applied with dimensional tape.  Here is a close up of that element.
Inside I placed some of the die cut stars onto white cardstock. I really like this die and I can see many more uses for it.
Thank you for looking, and do yourself a favour head over to Soul Scrappers, join and take part in their challenges. 
Margaret :)
