Polka Doodles........

Morning peeps hope you are all looking forward to the long summer holidays now the schools have broken up.....well they have here, we have been that busy with presants for teachers that most of them must have a ton of chocolate to munch on during the hoildays.....yummy.


Today sees the start of a new challenge at Polkadoodles, the theme this week is recycling, I chose to use some acetate packaging that I had saved from ages ago. I printed out the trees and snowman using gimp and shrinking them down to about 1 inch (or 2.5cms if you don't remember inches....lol) in size, I even layered up the hat and scarf on the dinky snowman....awwwwhh. I tore white paper and edged with glitter for the landscape and then popped the trees and snowman in between the layers.
Shhhhhh this is also a sneek peek of the new Christmas Cd which is being released this Saturday on Create and Craft......lots of festive images to colour or print.
