Bag and Photographs

Hello everyone who drops by and thank you for your visit at Jumbled Crafts where all are welcome

At Moo Mania and more this time you can make anything as always so long as it follows the theme. This is it is to add layers .

The very talented Valerie had made a bag with a card on it for her DT piece at TIOT this time, that was a wonderful idea so I thought I would try one. There are 10 layers altogether counting six on my bag and 5 on the card. I made the bag from an A4 sheet of white paper and added some red paper strips and stamping, The ribbon and a charm as well.. The attached white card has a blue  Promarker edge a square of patchwork in flowered material, another small square scrap and a decoupage butterfly.


Last week we went to Burton Agnes Hall to see their Christmas Trimmings for this year. The Hall is lived in by the family and has been for generations and every year they make as many of the trimmings themselves as they can. Must be the elves in them.

 Santa's 'Little' helper
 The Hall-well worth a visit at any time of year and the walled garden is terrific with a maze as well as games and there is also a woodland walk with interesting things to see, I always imagine being one of the four little children that live there and riding around on a tricycle-brilliant I reckon.

This is just a taster of the many rooms, decorations and with wonderful ideas. Must say that the place has a lovely, friendly and family atmosphere as well.

That's it for today-hope you enjoyed the trip around the hall or maybe will visit there one day.

Love Chrissie xx

Ten layers?! Wow - and the result is great.

Amazing photos of the Christmas decorations at Burton Agnes Hall. If I'm remembering rightly, I sat and goggled at last year's displays here, and now I'm doing the same again! That first bedroom looks like something out of a fairytale - truly magical - thank you for sharing the delights.
