A Christmas gift

Hi guys, whats the weather like where you are? nice hey!
here it's raining again!!! roll on summer lol,
the challenge we have for you over at 
is to decorate a chipboard beer mat or make an album,
 now me being me didn't take the easy route and did an album!!!

My images are all coloured with copics, I have used lots of glitter on this one too. the frame is a made using one of the spellbinders dies and I have used white acrylic paint to distress the edges,

This one is using a cuttlebug snowflake die which I have coated with lots of glitter too, then I have cut out a mini Tilda with latern and layered her on with pinflair glue, after shaping her using my shaping tool,
the dots are pearl liquid pearl,
paper by Magnolia 

Hope you can make out the Magnolia circle stamp which I stamped in versamark then added glittery embossing powder over the top,
I stamped mini Tilda in the middle, I have kept this one flat on purpose so the album didn't get too bulky and squashed!!!! 
 I rounded the corners using a corner punch,

This again is fairly flat again for the same reason, I made a pocket for the tag onto which your own words can be added, the background is white acrylic paint painted on,

Here I've masked Tilda onto the candy cane then coloured using my copics, her fur trim is glamour dust glitter and her wings where done using a glitter pen,
the snow dots were again made using liquid pearl

This is another back view, to really finish of the last page, !!!!

Well you can't have Christmas without Santa can you????
sorry, I mean I know you can but not in here!
I have a list of all the copics used if anyone is interested, just ask!
this time I stamped the parcels then cut out the stamped image of santa as I wanted some depth to his legs so I again shaped them with my shaping tool, they do sit  off the image a little but I don't think you can make it out so well on the picture, typical!!!

any way back to the shopping, I needed some shoes and a new coat!! OMG do you need a mortgage now just to put clothes on your back, think it will be a bin liner in future lol,
still it doesn't help when I spend most of my money on crafting stuff he he,

well I hope I haven't bored you too much, thanks so much for looking,

remember I still have candy for a few days!!!
