A Shiny Little Star- and maybe an RAK for you!!!

All of us on the Scrap That Poetry Design Team have been finding inspiration in the following lovely holiday poem by Marinela Reka:

So sweet, isn't it? I was inspired to pull out my xmas tree pics from last year and make a layout dedicated to my tree. I made a collage of the photos and printed with a grey mat, and then mounted over a collage of pattern paper scraps- you know how I just love to make good use of my scraps! My journaling was written on a library card and then cut into strips, and my "tree" letters were handcut from another scrap of pattern paper. I included my fav 2 lines of the poem by writing them on a scalloped strip that I layered along the side.

Now- if you read closely, you'll learn that we do a theme for our tree each year, and last years theme was "sports and beer"- something very near and dear to those in our family!! In past holiday seasons we have had various themes such as snowmen, santas, toys and candy. Now there are some of you (I'm not naming names) who might think us a bit crazy to do a different "theme" each year, but that's just how we tick here! What about you, does your tree have a theme, color scheme, or do you have an assortment of decos on there? Become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment about how you decorate for the holidays. One lucky commenter (selected at random) will receive a little RAK from me- a collection of my hand drawn titles, tags and journal cards to use in your own projects!

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy holiday season!!! =)T
