In the meadow we can build....

I wanted to share my new Christmas wreath with you. Actually, this one will probably stay up all winter. I was so happy when I opened the box from Deb at Say It With Letters and saw this wreath shape!

 So many ideas came to mind.
My first plan was to make a variation of the famous Martha Stewart clothespin wreath...

I covered the wreath shape with my favorite ledger paper...

but I could not for the life of me figure out a pleasing pattern for the clothespin placement!
I finally decided to wipe the slate clean and start over.
 This meant recovering the wreath shape and then decorating with
Wonderfully fun snow people!

The little song line was done on the computer and trimmed with a digital cardinal.
The snow folks were made with the Cricut (of course) and are from a cartridge called Snow Friends which, I'm afraid, is out of production. Some punched glittered snowflakes were the final touch.
Sometimes re-thinking a project and changing the plan can be a good thing.
Please take time to skip over to Deb's blog and see the beautiful creations for the other design team members. You will come away inspired!
