Greatest Joy

Hey everyone! :) I got to spend some time in my craft room yesterday and today and that makes me sooo happy! Of course I am in the mood to work on Christmas projects - who isn't?! - so I was soo happy to see that the theme of the challenge at Scrappy Mom's this week is CHRISTMAS! :) I am allll over this! 

I started with some pics from not last Christmas (because apparently I LOST all the pics from last Christmas, which is heartbreaking...). 

I started by making a tag using some cuts from a Recollections stack, the Damask background stamp by Pink By Design, some Distress Ink, ribbon, pearls and a little angel embellishment from the jewelry department at WalMart. 

I used my sewing machine to stitch some pieces of patterned paper in the background, added a little 'tag' under my picture with a cute sentiment from Scrappy Moms, some large forest green felt ribbon, letters embossed with gold powder and last, but not least, a 'JOY' tag made from Pink By Design stamps. 

Speaking of Scrappy Mom's... I don't know if you noticed, but there is a new badge on my sidebar!! I will be the Guest Designer over at Scrappy Moms for the month of February! I cannot wait to get to know another great group of ladies!! :)
