This was a photo I took at a tree farm only a few weeks ago. I thought the wreath was funny. I did a whole lot of fussy cutting on this to transform it into a wreath.
Now the little pine cones...that's a story. The same day I took this photo, Dec. 3rd, it was 60 degrees F out. Unheard of in NY where it should be snowing. I had seen a LO with some great digital pinecone flowers sawed down into layers and thought, I can do this in real life. So I asked my husband if he wanted to take a nice romantic stroll in our local park.
Yep - he fell for it. But asked why on earth I was bringing along a shopping bag. What? Me? Then I had to spill it. My real purpose was pine cone fetching. Keep your eyes open for the big whoppers please honey. walk walk walk, no cones. Anywhere! Found a few medium sized ones but I swear some other scrapper got to the park first and scooped up more than her share! Maybe for a wreath? sheesh the nerve!
The hubby joyfully spoted a bunch of tiny little cones still on the tree. So we picked to our hearts delight and I was happy. It was NOT exactly what I wanted but life seldom is.
The Dusty Attic Bird of Paradise was fun to create also.
This was made using the Scraps Of Darkness December Kit - Winter's Eve. Based on the sketch of Charlotte - suepup.. The kit is packed with such amazing papers and fun embellies. It's very diverse and can fit into any scrapping style preference. Come check out the fun.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful Christmas and holiday Season
