A musical star...

Hello and thanks for stopping by to visit!

This is one of the ornaments I made for our piano teacher this year.

Adding the jingle bells on top of the raffia and wooden buttons seemed to be just what it needed. I am happy to say that the burgundy raffia has been upcycled!

Here is Chester, the piano man, at his recital and below is another- not so good photo- of me with him. Sorry to say that Doodlepants refused to be photographed...what can you do eh?

It matters not, they both played beautifully - Doodlepants played "Away in a Manger" (one of the ones I used to sing him to sleep with and one he often requested as a toddler - he is a November baby) and Chester played "Angels We have heard on High". We are so very proud of them both!!!

I would like to enter my project in the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - red, stipes, stitching, dies (hand-made)
Ribbon Carousel - inspiration photo (lots of red & white, candy canes, Santas)
Wee Memories - Free for all!

Better run, it's getting late,
Shanna :)

What I used:
papers: authentique
