Nutcracker from 2009

Every year DH gets me a nutcracker, he wraps it up and puts it under the Christmas Tree. Sometimes he doesn't find one until the day before Christmas, sometimes he finds them right away. This year I will be taking pictures of each and every one and making a scrapbook page for their own album.

Here is the one I received from him last year. Last year we opened presents early - a couple of days before we went to Montana. The only decorations that we put up were the Christmas wreath on the front door, a live one from the Boy Scouts, and the 5 Christmas wreaths that go on the outside lights on the front of our home. So this guy never got wrapped up and put in with the other decorations and he was easy to grab quickly and take a picture of.

I used red line tape behind the ornament back, sprinkled glitter on the tape and then glued the ornament front on top. The leaves have pop up dots behind them so that the ornaments look like they are hanging. I'm starting my album at 8 1/2 x 11 but I don't know if I will keep that size or not. It's a work in progress so I'll just have to do a few more pages then decide.

Thanks for stopping by.
