Build a Stocking and Day 12

Hello friends

It has been a festive week!
I've been getting ready to teach a Chrismassy workshop on Saturday 
and this is one of the projects.
It uses Build a Stocking - one of the new Christmas dies. 

Lots of pieces in this die set and I've used every one in my project.

I matted gold mirror card onto an ivory card base and then an ivory mat.
I die cut the stocking twice to create a white cuff and added white dots with my gel pen.
The rest is cut from various colours and piled into the stocking.

The 'Be Merry' is from Naughty or Nice - I featured this die set

Build a Stocking is available on the website here, just a few left but 
more are on their way, they've been selling fast! 

I'm up to Day 12 and about to experience Silver Dollar City in 
Branson, Missouri.
Think of a wild west family theme park with so much more.

And this is the more...

Lots of lovely little shops and stands with crafty items and food - heaven!
My first root beer float...ok I confess, I didn't like it,
something I don't! 

Everything felt very authentic. 

Kim was also on a mission this day to find me an American man!
We laughed a lot...

 Kim and I on the theme park train, this gets held up by cowboys!

Brian and I having a rest!

The evening was wrapped up with a concert - a country band,
Restless Heart - very good and foot tapping.

We were cramming so much into each day, it was magical.
And here is my album, not quite finished this section but loving the tabbed
pages and pockets.

Take care friends - please stop by tomorrow for Friday Die Day.

    I'm 'soaking in' all your holiday piccies, I was having a chuckle at your 'admirers', the Sheriff would be great for you but the 'long and the short of it' whoah, how tall was he !!! You definitely crammed loads into your days.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
