Rudolph (the red nose reindeer that is!)

Finally got Tripp's Rudolph SB pages done! Joe and I took him to see the production back in December at Casa Manana in Fort Worth. We all had such a good time. No picture taking allowed during the performance, but I was able to find 'clip' images from the Rudolph TV show I remember -- all the same characters as the production! Thinking we've got a yearly tradition going now to see the holiday performances at Casa with Tripp (and maybe some more grandchildren someday!). I found a sweet little Santa and sleigh image, colored it with a few Copics and popped it up on dimensionals. Black waxed twine was used to weave through the silver chip board letters (Recollections) to mimic the other reindeer with Rudolph leading the way. Used my Cricut Celebrations cart to cut out the doily mat. Love how this turned out.

Copics - Still Practicing (and will be for a while!)

I'm really enjoying using my Copic markers -- it will definitely take me lots of practice to get the hang of these awesome tools. Not too crazy about the mouse grass or my work on skin tones, but it will get better -- I'm determined. Great digis from Angelique at She's got lots of precious images -- such talent. They look great framed in my new Nestabilities from Michaels - great prices when you use their 40% and 50% off coupons!
