"I got my first Nutcracker at the Nurnberg market. The next day I searched for another unique nutcracker. Imagine my surprise when I returned to my hotel to discover both Nutcrackers were almost identical." And so the battle began between the brothers. They fought in the suitcase on the way home from Germany and have had to be separated every Christmas since. Cracker (the red one) dropped his sword and I had to fix it. It must have happened during an attack...

If ever there was a "use your supplies" layout this would be it. Everything on this layout I had. I did not buy one new thing. The things from various Ebay scrapbook lots (which means I never would have bought them on their own) were
- pattern paper - ProvoCraft Cricut Christmas Cheer 6" x 12" paper stack
- Tree - Sandylion Essentials Christmas Trees
- brass stencils - Plaid All Night Media
- nutcracker stickers - Mrs Grossman's,
- Holly stickers - Creative Imaginations Holly /Pine
- Santa Rub On - Momenta Christmas Par Rub On
- Reindeer sticker
The "Merry Christmas" is from a recycled Christmas card. The red ribbon is recycled from a Christmas gift.
I added the text to the photo in Photoshop. And if you look closely you will see the same woman twice! This was a photo merge of two photos. "I keel you" bubble and "Can't we all just get along" text was made in Photoshop. I misspelled "kill" on purpose. Don't want to scare small children.

Title was made using SureCutsaLot and if the font looks like a Thickers font it is cause it is. I found the font name, Whoa Nelly, in a thread on this site and then found the font on the internet.
I added some doll hair to the large photos. I am very sorry to have to report a troll doll gave up his locks for this page. I glued some extra shiny sequin thingies here & there to match the tree. I cut the mat using DECO SCISSORS cause...
It ain't scrapbooking unless you use DECO SCISSORS!!!

Thank you for looking

ok now I can confirm how sneaky that Cracker really is. There is some holly stuck to his sword. He must have been practicing his sword fighting last night.
