Star Tilda

Ohhh - Christmas is getting closer! Just three months to go! And yes, I have finally started to get into the Chrissy mood.  

For this project, I washed out an olive jar and decorated it for a candle. The top of the jar is 'frosted' with German Glitter Glass. The paper is Magnolia and the adorable Tilda is "Star Tilda" from the Merry Little Christmas collection 2010.

I've punched around the paper edged with a MS punch and then added some cheesecloth and seam binding to pretty it up a bit.

 I can not wait to get my hands on this year's Chrissy collection - have you seen them yet? I am just GREEN with envy of my crafty friends who were lucky enough to get to Stampel Mekka this year and get them early - you lucky lucky ladies!!

And just to make you smile, here are my two best ever creations - my little boys! They are 'helping' me while I am trying to take pics of my candle holder, lol. They thought it was great fun blowing out the candle over and over. Cheeky little monkeys!

And the cheekiest monkey of all, my eldest. What a smile. Every day he begins to look more and more like his Daddy. I am the luckiest Mum in the world to have two amazing little boys. I fall in love with them both more and more every single day.

Ok, enough sappiness from me :) I'll let you get back to your day.
Thanks for visiting me!
Big hugs
Kylie xx
