My last post (I think) for this year...

Gosh time just seems to move way too fast.  The days are ticking over and 
soon it will be Christmas, thankfully i'm on track with Shopping etc but 
sadly Scrapping has taken a back seat the last fortnight and so I think this will 
be my last share for this year.  Unless I'm lucky enough to discover a few extra 
days and am able to participate in some challenges this month....sigh.
I'm sorry to those lovely bloggers that I haven't visited and commented on lately, I'm sure I'm missing out on some awesome scrapping but it's just been, work, kids, school, housework blah blah. You get the picture. 

In Amongst the chaos this past week I needed to organise gifts for the 
kids teachers. My Daughter actually gave me this idea when she suggested to me that she would like 
to do a Christmas 'She Art' ala Christy Campbell Tomlinson.
It was the spark I needed to create these Canvas'.  They are on 8x6" canvas panels and 
apart from my time constraints the Teachers were lucky to get them because by the time I'd finished,
I loved them so much I wanted to keep them for myself!!
So here are my Christmas Nativity canvases;
Mary and Baby Jesus.

The Wise Men -sorry this pictures a little blurry, I was in a hurry when I photographing them. 
Surprise, surprise!!

The Angel

The Shepherds

and another little Angel

I had such fun creating these
and now as soon as School finishes Tuesday, I've promised my Daughter I'll help her with her
Christmas She Art. Can't wait! One of the boys has asked if he could do a 'He Art' (hehe cute hey?)
And I've bought some more Panels just in case I find time to make our own Nativity!  ;)
Cheers all you lovely readers and commenters. 
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas. x
