I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Some time ago, I scored five ATC sized tray thingies on clearance at Michaels. It took me five months to figure out what to do with one of them, but I am happy with the way it turned out. I didn't care too much for the wood so I slathered it in a few layers of white acrylic before placing all of the happy Santa images. This one started the whole thing:

Oh my, I'm a sucker for jolly Santa faces! Most of the other images came from this fantastic collage sheet and a few duplicate Little Golden books.

The rest of the stuff I used is listed HERE as well stash things like vintage jingle bells, a miniature fence, old Christmas bulbs, button, a striped straw, and a silk poinsettia from 1978.

I'm going to be a total Scrooge and keep it for myself. Happy Holidays!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
