Hello friends & Happy December 1st to ya all!!! Did you all have a fabulous holiday & weekend!? Mine was fabulous I must say. After celebrating dinner at my brother's house with my family, hubby and I went to see the Broadway show "Jersey Boys" in DC on Black Friday---that show was FABULOUS!! I loved every minute of it, still singing the songs & we were lucky enough to meet the cast and get our show poster signed by everyone!! It was a wonderful evening--then we returned to my mom's house for the night. I always get all my fresh greens from my mom's woods every year (it's a tradition), so we did that on Saturday and I put them all thru my house in every nook & cranny--the smell is Christmas delish for sure! Then on Sunday, hubby & the kids and I went to Snicker's Gap Christmas Tree farm and "hunted" down our 2 trees--the weather was 70 degrees & I was in HEAVEN!! We got our 11 ft tree for the family room and a Blue Spruce for the rec-room then came home & did all the outside decorating since the weather was so agreeable!! I've got everything done except 1 more tree and the banisters of our stairs to do & I'm finished--it is holiday fabulous in the Dean household. Christmas music playing, lots of pretty lights and potpourri simmering on the stove---my favorite time of year for sure! Now to finish my Xmas shopping (that's a whole 'nother kinda chore that's for sure, LOL)!

Atlantia" image that I colored with Copics (BG72,BG11,BG10,B95,B91) and then added some Stickles to her, and I used Liquid Pearls (in silver pearl) on her pearl accents. A few scrolls made with my punch and some rhinestones & pearls added for bling. The bow was made with my Bow Easy & then I added a "Say It With Pearls" Prima center and a shell charm to finish it off.
HERE & I just made a top for it so it would hold the gift (candle)--the lid is a 3.5" square scored at 1/2" all around. The top has more embellished scrolls and a pretty bow. I used vellum to cover the ovals--attached them with Scor-tape for a secure hold. A pretty easy gift to make for someone special--hope you like it too!
