Almost a Christmas baby

Here's some fun for the WOW blog post today.
A few (not too many) years ago there was an empty little cot under the Christmas tree. I was due on Christmas Day, but thankfully I was 2 weeks late. So I am "almost a Christmas baby".

The photo is really sweet and soft and the beautiful filigree chipboard tree matched perfectly. 

A pretty little chippie like this doesn't need too much embellishing or it'll get overpowered. I simply mounted it on some paper, covered it in white crackle paint and added a few highlights with Perfect Pearls: 

The star got the glamour treatment with red glitter all over it. A charm sits on top: 

The "Funky Christmas" title suits that 70ies feel just fine (yes, I am thatold): 

I painted it white, inked the edges and outlined it roughly with a pen:

 And finished it off with some bootie charms: 

I have loved Christmas ever since!
