Natale 99

Layout done with Club Scrap Evergreen kit and chipboard elements, painted with acrylic gold interference paint. Card is done with some Club Scrap card stock. Stamps are from Hero Arts, Club Scrap and CTMH.

Christmas 1999: This year was the only time Joe & I ever did manual labour to make a Christmas gift. Earlier in the month we were in New York and Massachusetts. And in a small town we came across a very quaint shop selling doll houses. I fell in love with them! So we decided that this would be Lilly's gift for Christmas. After we got back to Italy we had one week to get it all fixed. Neither of us are very handy but we set up a temporary workshop in an empty office. And for one week we worked so hard - starting early morning and staying up late into the night. And we managed to get the doll's house ready in time ~ just to see the smile on Lilly's face!

For you LOTR fans .....
