As promised, here the layout I finished yesterday morning...it took me a week to finish all the details since I almost never do sketches and I start with a picture/s and go as I please...never planning what stamps or accessories I am going to be using....just photos, colors and papers...then everything else comes later...
And here are a few close ups:
Can you guess how I made that tree??? I used the chocolate waffle paper in the Holiday Mini catalog. The waffle paper is fantastic in a sense that it can be shaped easily into anything you want. I adhered the different molded pieces with my beloved crystal effects.
I hand-drew the bubble windows for the owls. Here's a full list of all supplies (all Stampin'Up):
Cardstock/Paper: Cherry Cobbler, very vanilla, whisper white, vellum, Newsprint DSP, Early Espresso waffle paper
