Christmas with the 7 Gyspies

I have been trying to get this 7 Gypsies tray posted for about 2 weeks now and when I saw Simon Says Challenge yesterday I thought what a perfect time to do it.  I love to work on projects like these because they don't take very long and I  feel like I've done something each time I complete one of the squares.  I found the Santa in the Sleigh last year after Christmas and fell in love-- of course I had to wait until this year to put in on the tray.  I wasn 't sure if he was going on the bottom of a project or a scrapbook page. Project wins.  I took several pieces from Graphic 45 Christmas Past Collection and sparkled them up with glossy accents and stickles.  Of course, no project would be complete without a little Tim Holtz in there.  I used the mica flakes paper from the seasonal pack and made a pocket watch.  The pocket watch fits quite nicely with Simon Says portion of the challenge...looking through the looking glass--don't you think???  If you want to see the Simon Says Challenge info make sure you check it out here. 


Hope you like it as much as I had fun making it. Thanks for stopping by.
