SQUEEK! SQUEEK!

I hope you're sitting down for this! ... it's a total shocker! ... I actually had a creative idea ... and even acted upon it! I made this collage shadow box as my gift exchange item for our annual weSTAMP demo group Christmas party. Not too shabby for being so rusty!
Design inspired by the colors and patterns from Candy Cane Christmas Designer Paper (Real Red, Garden Green, Baja Breeze, and Blushing Bride). All products are Stampin' Up! (current and retired), except the shadow box frame.

More highlights from the weSTAMP Christmas party coming soon! (AMAZING night!!!)
