Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

The Holly & the Ivy!

Good morning & happy Friday to you all.

I'm back today to share my latest Polkadoodles DT make as there is a new challenge launching over on the Polkadoodles blog, so why not pop over, see what's going on and join in!

So this week, I took our DT challenge literally! Firstly we were also asked to make our creation based on a Christmas carol. I thought long and hard about this and decided my carol inspiration was 'The Holly & the Ivy'! Then it said 2 CD's, so sure enough I used the gorgeous 'Home For Christmas' cd together with the fabulous 'Angelberry' collection, but then I also took 2 old CD's to make the main bases of my decoration. I printed off papers & embellishments, which I layered for a decoupage effect, from both collections to cover the cd's and I also printed the beautiful digi image of the Angelberry Peace angel which I coloured with a mix of markers. Once everything was dry I glued each part to some Christmassy ribbon. I also die cut some ivy using a die I have, I kept it pearl white but rubbed some gold gilding wax to accent the embossing.

Some close ups -

I'm really enjoying challenging myself to make different things and this was different for me, I wouldn't have made such a piece, so I say have a go! You never know what you will come up with.

Take care Zo xx
