HO! HO! HO!

Santa is coming to Town....bet you are all singing along...........lol. 

We are nearly at the end of the Altered Dictionary Challenge at the Craft Barn with the last two letters X and I so I am here to post my X page no prizes for guessing what my choice was.............what do you mean you can't guess...............ho ho ho.  With only 3 words to choose from which were   xray  didn't have a stamp for this one,  xylophone no that didn't do it either so I went with........drum roll   Xmas  oh you had already guessed.............although that word grates on me I had fun with the page being short of time I grabbed the Christmas stamps that were sat on my desk Tim Holtz of course.


Now you will have spotted that Santa has a very yellow tint to his beard this is due to the very yellow page for Y which is overleaf and I tried white paint but the yellow soaked through so I gave that up, perhaps we could imagine Santa has been busy in his workshop and got yellow paint in his beard........yep that works for me!!
Pine branches were stamped in top corner and I added tissue tape all around the page (don't tell anyone this is hiding the very yellow paint). I loaded the page with glitter but I couldn't get a photo which showed it well  it looks really glittery in real life.

I will be back hopefully soon with my I page, I also have to alter the cover of the book, thanks for looking.

'till next time

  4. I'll forgive you the "Xmas" because your page is delightful! I love those layered trees, and maybe he's just decided that blondes have more fun!

  6. If I zoom in I can see the glitter in all its glory,just like sparkling snow! Never mind the yellow beard, if you hadn't mentioned it I wouldn't have given it a second thought.

  9. I love your page and I think his beard looks good with the hint of yellow. Perhaps he spilt the whisky! I'm trying to shy away from using Xmas but I suspect with not much other choice I may just have to go along with it. Hugs Mrs A.

  13. LOL I had the same problem with my W (for Wrinkle) page soaking through but I realised just in time and took a copy of the X page to cover the messed up one with. Great page though even if Santa has a yellow beard.
