A LITTLE MERRY ... { Reminder Project July 2019 Color It Create It Show It Off}


Here is my July 2019 REMINDER project for My Besties Colour It! Create It! Show It off! using this adorable NIXIE PIXIE ELF, from Sherri Baldy which
you can purchase HERE.  I am sure you will agree that this little Elf is too cute for words and a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas in July.

I have coloured him in Photoshop CS3. The embellishment has been created with square punches. The design papers are from my stash .  The crochet squares have been made for me by a very dear friend Liz.

The wordart is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.
