Brown Paper Packages

Make It Monday this week, features Lexi Daly, 
showing us how to use our stamps to create wrapping paper.
Lexi's video is full of pointers, such as lining stamps up, and 
she provides 3 templates on her blog. (Thank you, Lexi!)

Our house goes natural vintage at Christmas time.
All red and green, lots of things I collected when my nest was full.
5 children became 10, as they all married, 
and along with them, we are now blessed with 11 grandchildren, 
ages 2 to 22.
5 girls and 6 boys, (the 2 littlest with me the last 4 days!)
Christmas is always at our home, as it is centrally located between
the homes of the family. It's the happiest, busiest, wildest time of the year!
Besides Christmas we celebrate the birthdays of 3 family members!

Finally found time to play along with Lexi.
Nichole's blog is full of wonderful inspiration by all of you!
Here's how I created my papers:

Main stamps are from Two Feet Deep.
I had to look up Heather's card for reference, as I've never worn 
snowshoes! I used 2 of Lexi's templates for my papers.

I added a snowflake strip with a snowflake from Snowflake Medley.

Word paper also from Two Feet Deep.

Tag is doubled, Tag Sale #4, with 'To & From': Pom Pom Pals.

Hope you get a chance to play along, 
I love seeing what all my blogging friends create!
