Claudine Hellmuth Christmas Village

Here is my cut and paste project today from Claudine Hellmuth . It turned out really cute but I can't say that I really enjoyed making it. I have never been a good measurer, cutter or paster. Even as a child. Maybe that is why I am not so good at making books although I love to make them. This is my theory on that, for me at least--- precise measuring must take a switch from the right brain to the left brain---back and forth and I don't do well switching I don't think. I get a headache when I have to measure things while reading instructions (ugh!!!)---and actually my left brain is pretty non-existent anyway! I was bound and determined to make it though. And I need to find the little battery powered tea lights. Then I think it really will be cute. So, for today, my left brain had a go of it!

The background is paste paper I did the other day on cradled 12 x 12 Ampersand panels.
Oh, and by the way, I have been tagged a couple of times and I have not been able to continue the tag but I do SO appreciate the tags from a couple of you wonderful and talented people. I'll try better next time--if there is a next time! :)
Update! I just checked Michelle Brown site and guess what I saw---check it out!!!!
