Miracle on 34th Street!

ZZproject2a1209 This project has been in my head for 960* years ... finally I made it! *Please see note re exaggerating on Monday's post!*

Call me a child ... to be honest I am ... but I LOVE Miracle on 34th Street. I really do think that Mr Attenborough is Father Christmas and whenever I watch the film ... at least once every year over the Christmas period ... I want to hold something up that says that I believe ... you know in that bit when they are in the courtroom. Well this year they are gonna be sooooooo impressed ... this is in a different league to my usual A4 sheet of paper with a Marker pen scribbled "I Believe" on it :0)ZZproject2d1209

I cannot begin to tell you what is on it ... papers are clearly Cosmo Cricket Be Good ... I say clearly ... I have used them on everything this year :0) Book is Bo Bunny ... although I did n't use their book rings ... I have bound it with the Bind It All. The Grunge paper flowers are Paper Artsy ... the ribbons are Rusty Pickle ... Cap n' Jack and if you really neeeeeeeed to know anything else ... please feel free to email me.ZZproject21209

Okay ... Big deep breath ... I am going to brave the shops  ... see if I can't do all my Christmas shopping in one day ... actually one shop would be nice ... Do you think that is possible??? ... I could try I suppose :0) I will let you know!

Have a good day and remember to leave the mulled wine out on your blogs ... I am going to need a stiff drink when I visit you later ... after all that shopping :0)

That is absolutely stunning. It would just look fandabbydozy in my cabin. Love it. My workmates are getting sick of me grabbing anyone who passes my door and me shouting "quick you must just see this". Then they ask -did you do it!!!!! I am tempted to say "course I did"! Fabulous. Burnice. Can you tell I like it!

Absolutely fantabulous Linda!!!!

I believe too and I bought 2 little bags of reindeer food this morning (my hairdressers were selling it to raise funds for cystic fibrosis)for my granddaughters to scatter in the garden on Christmas Eve. It has golden glitter in to sparkle in the moonlight so the reindeer can see it and oats that they can smell so they can find their way to the right house. I can't wait!
