The Stamping Boutique's 12 Days of Christmas

I absolutely loved this project. 
Tracey Malnofski of The Stamping Boutique released the images found in this book last year.  I wasn't introduced to digital images until the middle of this year, so I missed out ... and as soon as I saw these in her store, this project came INSTANTLY to mind. 

I actually begged Tracey to make the holly leaves special for the cover here - lucky me, she came up with 2 images the next day.  The sentiments on the cover and throughout the book are computer generated.

Here's a close up of how I added the 2 holly images & flipped them around so that they accented the title.  I colored inside the letters with one of the greens I used to color the holly leaves.

Day 1 - My True Love gave me a Partridge in a Pear tree ...
Okay, so maybe it was a golden cage, right?

Day 2 - He gave me 2 Turtle Doves

Day 3 - I got some lovely French Hens

Day 4 - Imagine my surprise when I opened the door to 4 Calling Birds

Day 5 - Hello - What girl wouldn't want
5 Golden Rings
(maybe with a little bling on them?)

Day 6 - How about
6 Geese a Laying beautiful eggs

Day 7 - Wish it was warmer out so I could thoroughly enjoy these
7 Swans a Swimming out in the lake.

Day 8 - Somebody's got to do the chores, so he thoughtfully provided me with these
8 Maids a Milking

Day 9 - For entertainment, we watched these
9 Ladies Dancing

Day 10 - After they were done, the
10 Lords came a Leaping

Day 11 - What would dancing or leaping be without 11 Pipers Piping

Day 12 - And to accompany those flautists, we had 12 Drummers Drumming

All in all, was a wonderful 12 Days of Christmas.

So, what do you think?  Did any of them inspire you to check out The Stamping Boutique's site for digital images?  I promise you - you won't be disappointed.
Here's hoping you all have a Blessed Holiday season!
Rubber (and digital) hugs!
