So when I was young, and I wish I could say 5, but I think I wash more  like 25? I made this silly advent wall hanging. The pockets hold the tree ornaments and you put one a day til Christmas and then your tree is all decorated. When Maddie came around people assumed she made it lol. Now she is too creative for people to think that any more. The catch is.., Maddie loves it and since most of our traditions thru the transitions have vanished, that old silly advent is all that's left. So, every Christmas she proudly hangs it on her door.
Next time you are making a project whether it be a page or an altered object, just remember, YOU are the only one to see the imperfections, except in this case lol they are obvious! Just kidding, someone will always love it! But, have a fun and wonderful Christmas, a beautiful New Year and I will see you in 2012!!

A teaser

WARNING! This post has no photo! I know what your saying ' what? But Selena is all about the photos??' well here's the thing, I am doing the Jan 4th post on the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog, and if you look at the calendar it's not Jan 4th yet! Problem is I was kinda excited when I finished so I thot I could at least share the excitement! And maybe you'll be back to see the final project moihaha. My evil plan at work! I'm not even going to tell you what line I used, but I can tell you where the inspiration came from ....I have 100's of pictures of Maddie's self portrait in the mirror ( ok 1000's) and some are my favorite pics, so the idea started from this collection of photo's where you can see the camera in the mirror, ( I think the camera makes the pic that much more special!)
So that's my hint hehe see ya Jan 4th!! :-)

So here goes... lol I start mid January so you will see links to the product, and store, and my "team mate" who has a great name.... also, Selena! For now, I'll try and prepare and see where THIS road takes me!
