I caved. Yes, I did. I tried to resist because I know I should have been working on my Christmas kits, that I still owe to five customers. I kept going back and looking at Tim's wonderful tag for Day #1 and I was doing a good job resisting, until I saw Shelly Hickox's dynamite post. I was so inspired by her encouragement to "Make it Work" that all my good intentions went out the window. I just had to play. I don't have the Tattered Pinecone die (yet - LOL) so I followed Shelly's instructions and my pinecone came out great. I just don't know how to fasten it on with that darn toothpick sticking out the rear. It seems to be laying down when it should be sticking up - oh well, I'll figure it out.
Update: Propped up the pinecone with a bit of foam under it so it sits up a bit and reshot the photo from a different angel. Helps a bit to make the pinecone more visible.
Have you ever played along with Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas? I haven't, but you know I am in tag mode this season so I'm sure to be inspired by some of his amazing work. Okay, now I'm going back to work on those kits.
Thanks for stopping by!
