Christmas Is A Time to "Dream Big"

I remember as a little girls lying under the tree starring at my favorite ornaments and dreaming of what St. Nicholas would bring. 

The photo of Little playing with one of the ornaments on the tree reminded me of my days of dreaming about Christmas.

This is from my view of Blue Fern Studios' November sketch.
The paper is from Basic Grey (white) and Kaisercraft.  The chipboard from Blue Fern Studio is the title "Dream Big", the honeycomb, and the corner.

I cut the holly leaves from Kaisercraft paper and added Xmas Stickles from Ranger.  I embossed the corner and title with Ranger's Ancient Gold embossing powder.  The honeycomb chipboard is painted with Gesso.  Add a little Jenni Bowlin card, a few sequins, and Recollections glittered wire and you have it. 

We are getting ready for the Nutcracker Ballet, visiting Santa Claus, Festival of Trees, Little's Hanukkah play, and so much more.  I think the season is here.

I'm also getting ready for 12 Days of Home for the Holidays!  12 Guests, 9 sponsors, 1 surprise guest with a gift from the heart, 1 giveaway.  Are you ready for the holiday inspiration from 12 wonderfully talented crafters from our greater craft community?  I am.
