Mixed Media Monthly December Challenge

Happy Monday! Did the Holiday fly by or what?!?!? I need a holiday from the Holiday!! I wouldn't change a thing though - the time spent with family, friends and teaching was the best way to spend the Holiday.
Today I will be posting twice ... that's right, TWO posts from me today!! The first is December's challenge over on the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog. The challenge is so fun this month - it's a game of tic-tac-toe. Choose the three elements you want to incorporate onto your project and start creating. Here's our logo ...
I went with Stencil, Glitter and Patterned paper.
I decided to decorate an embroidery hoop I've had in my stash for some time. I started with some older Authentique papers. I traced around the hoop onto the music paper and then stenciled some snowflakes onto one side with modeling paste. Once dry I adhered that to the back of the hoop. I cut out three simple trees, stamped them with a script stamp and gesso and attached them to the music paper - popping up two of them with foam tape for dimension.
 I added some stickles to the snowflakes, a few sequins, some shimmer twine and done!! Here's a close-up of the stenciled snowflakes ...
