A Christmas Wish 5

 

Supplies

Font of choice - I used Tooney Loons here and LD Gregarious which is a pay font

Weescotlass Mask 208 here

Dee and Kandi’s collab template here - you can find it under August 25, 2011.  There are 4 templates in the download.  This tutorial uses kkdeecollab2.

“A Christmas Wish” is a tagger size scrap kit created by Lis of PSPGirl Design.  This portion is part of a huge mega collab to help a fellow designer in her time of need.  It  can be purchased from TKO Scraps.   You can visit Lis’ blog here.
