MFT: You're "One of a Kind" Hanger/Ornament

Hi everyone! Hope you're all keeping your tootsies warm, it's freezing where I am. I was so super happy to break out with my cozy Ugg slippers, which I store away after the winter (it can get as hot as 110 here in Sacramento during the summer time!) But boy oh boy does it get CHILLY here in the winter time. Brrrrrrrr!!!!

Anywhoooo.... here's another fun project I created of my eldest son Jarrod. This picture was taken at Disneyland on Thanksgiving weekend in front of the 3 story Christmas tree! Such a fun time and I thought this picture of Jarrod came out so cute, I wanted to hang it up!

I just absolutely LOVE Flopsey the bunny from MFT. He is so super cute and works perfectly with pictures of my boys. :-) This Flopsey and sentiments are from the "Snowflake Flopsey" stamp set by MFT. I colored up Flopsey with my Copic markers and paper pieced his scarf with some old My Minds Eye Christmas paper I had in my stash. I used the same paper for the frame (cut out with Sizzix "Frame" die) as well as the snowflakes that I die cut using MFT's Die-namics "Let it Snowflake." I love this die, it's so cute and versatile! I used my Glossy Accents to glue on clear dew drops to the center of the smaller snowflakes. Then I used my iTop brad maker and the same design paper to create the custom brad for the large snowflake. Super fun! I trimmed the left side of the frame using the Die-namics "Dainty Dots Border." This die-cut border is one of my new favs... it may be dainty, but again works perfectly with pics of my boys! I didn't stop at the picture frame, I decided to make this little puppy into something I could hang on my wall or on my Christmas tree. I added a little hanger that I purchased from eBay and stamped the sentiment "Let it Snow" from the "Snowflake Flopsey" stamp set. Super adorable, I love it! :-)

Hope you enjoyed your weekend! It went by so fast, didn't it?! Now it's time to get off this computer and get some projects completed! hehe!!! 'Til next time... happy crafting! Keep inspiring! :-)

When I see that rabbit I think, "Silly rabbit, Tricks are for kids!". LOL. I don't know why, I'm a geek I guess. LOL. :) Cute rabbit, cute kid.

Very Nice project Arlene! Your son is so handsome and photogenic.
Won't be long and he won't want to be associated with flopsy bunnies :-) You want to talk cold you should be here in the UP of Michigan under 3-4 foot of snow and below zero temps :-) Thanks for sharing this great project and the product list..appreciate that! Have fun with your Holiday Projects and Happy Holidays to you and yours. RuthAnn
