Christmas with Polkadoodles

It's getting close, yes, it is...whether we are ready for it or not.  Yes, Fall is here.  Oh!  You thought I was going to say something else didn't you?  You thought I was going to say Christmas!  Hahaha, well, for those of us that are excited about Christmas being practically right around the corner, this is for you.  My Polkadoodles project this week is an envelope mini album, using the Mailbox digital image from Polkadoodles' Work & Play Collection #5, Festive Hollybobs.

I created this piece by using a new tutorial from Dawn's Inspirations on Youtube.  I love her tutorials, she is just so easy to listen to.  And when you find out how easy this album is to make, you will laugh at yourself!

I also used digital papers and sentiments from the same Hollybobs collection throughout the album.  I colored this piece with my Prismacolor Premiere pencils in the following colors:

Hat/scarf/holly leaves - PC912, 1096, 908
Hair - PC1083, 944, 946
Skin - PV927, 939
Mitts/jacket/boots - PC1084, 941, 947
Skirt/tights - PC903, 1100, 901, 1065
