Crafts too vintage Christmas - Monochromatic

Hi everyone, Sorry I'm a bit late with my post today! I worked all day yesterday and then when I got in I needed to decorate the house for halloween, decorate the kids lol and make tea, then we went out trick or treating for about 2 hours, bathed the kids to remove all the face paints and put everyone to bed, by which time I was shattered and forgot to write this post last night!
Then this morning I've been trying to sort out the halloween aftermath!
And just a few photos of our efforts...
Amelia - zombie cheerleader
Caleb - pumpkin monster
Hiolette - zombie school girl
But now on to the pretty and less scary stuff! It's a new monthly challenge over at Crafts too challenge you and we have a monthly challenge of Vintage Christmas and our twist for the first 2 weeks is Monochromatic, here is my make..
This is not my regular type of thing at all but I like it all the same! I used Nellies Vintage xmas images from crafts too and added some shabby white frantage around the outside. My Papers were Teresa Collins, I used flowers from WOC, a Mariannes snowflake die, a recycled tag, stunning butterfly from Kays kreative korner and this adorable hanging stocking border die from crafts too. Everything else is from my stash.
I went all shades of brown for my monochrome theme and used vintage photo distress ink and picket fence crackle paint for added vintageness!
Thanks for coming by my blog everyone, I hope you can join us for the challenge.
Big hugs
