Christmas Scraps

   This week I was digging through my stash of scraps, and I decided that some of the papers I found had been in my stash way, way too long. I found a whole pile of My Mind's Eye Be Merry papers from years ago, and I decided they just had to go somewhere. (Plus, that's the only way I can justify buying new paper to myself, and I'm itching for Echo Park's new Christmas line.)

     I love the snowmen in this paper, so I fussy cut them, mixed them with other scraps and found myself with a whole set of cards and a little gift card holder - made entirely from scraps.

    I had a blast with these snowmen, and as much as I hate to see them go, new paper adventures await!
