Before I put the fish in, I set up the bottom vase with white marbles and green stones, since I knew I was going to use a red fish in keeping with the Christmas colors. I decorated some Prima Christmas wood icons to fill in the front as I thought it looked a bit empty,other than the marbles. Contact Suzanne for those little bits of yumminess, as well as the latest Tim Holtz pens and paints I used to color them with.I pulled some bling from my stash to decorate the tree. I used ATG tape, 1/4", to adhere the tulle trim, and did two layers of it for a fuller look, then the mini organza cream roses that I dyed green. The ATG allows me to remove the trim at a later date if I want to decorate Mr. Fish III's tank for another holiday. My grandson, who insists on naming my car, refuses to give our fish any other name. Maybe he'll change his name when he sees this one!
. The Cosmo Cricket mini mobile and show toppers are the greatest thing since indoor plumbing! They come in green or white with different style tops. Don't like green or white? Get white and paint it another color. It's just that darned easy. So many little goodies you can hang from them. The pearl drop decor and crystal gems on the bottom are once again from "THE BOX" so click the link!! I'm telling ya, if you haven''t gotten one of these boxes you're really missing out! The pearl and bling trim is from my ever growing stash. I'm pretty sure I'll ordering more of this satin trim. It's pretty awesome.
The adorable little trees are Fancy Pants Tiny Bottle Brush Trees-Traditional and are also available in Retro colors as well. There are six in a pack so you can get more than one project from them
Well that's it for now faithful flock followers. Remember...." BOX" ! Make a scrapper in your life happy for Christmas or a birthday. You can create a beautiful gift basket, or two, out of one of these. You can get a combo (embellies & paper), paper only, or just embellies. It's a win win for sure.
HAVE A SCRAP-TASTIC DAY !!
