You should have hopped to me from Jane but if you are only just starting out the list is at the bottom.

I have made a gift bag for my project, I have coloured up Downhill Tilda using distressed markers & have added some trees in the background for a bit more depth. I have also added some snowtex & glamour dust but sadly the sparkle doesn't show in the pic.

The papers & snowflake embellishments are from the November Crafteezee collection.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts & all other embellishments are from my every growing stash of pretty things.
