Can You Digi It? challenge, and she brought back some college memories for me. The challenge involves making a holiday card with out using a holiday image. Don't you love the collage of photos she picked out for inspiration?
I think April meant for us to go with the Christmas holidays, but I went with New Year's because it always has to take a back seat to the rest of the holidays (actually it may take a front seat since it is the first one...). I used the very cool Framed Mountains Digi Image created by AnnieJ Designs. The image comes with three images of mountains with various tones. I cropped out one of the frames and then cut it with a Spellbinders Oval Die. I also used some crystals from the Zva Crystal Wheel available at Can You Digi It? At $3.50, I think it is one of the best values in crafting out there!
Oh yeah, back the college memories. My first two years in college at the Univerity of New Mexico, I dated a nice young man who belonged to a Fraternity. In order to spend more time with him, I became a "Little Sister" at the Fraterity. The Little Sisters were in charge of a giant party every year. At this party the theme was Holidays - all of them! So we used every kind of holiday decoration you could think of. It was gaudy to say the least, and I am sure you could see it from miles around. There were Christmas lights strung every where, a large American flag hanging in the front yard, carved pumpkins with candles at the front entrance, luminarias lining the sidewalk and driveway, and you can just imagine the inside of the house! I remember the clean-up was the worst!!!
Holiday Hugz to you!!!
