8. My Favourite Things

 Good morning everyone and welcome to a new challenge here at MAWTT
and for this one I have chosen the theme of.............
My favourite things!

Now, I don't want projects featuring bars of chocolate or pictures of 
Brad Pitt as the favourite things refers to the song from
The Sound of Music
 (one of my favourite films) 
so your entry must feature something from the song. 

If you are not familiar with the lyrics, here they are...............

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favourite things

Cream coloured ponies and crisp apple strudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favourite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favourite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad

I simply remember my favourite things
And then I don't feel so bad

So lads and lasses, let's see your brilliant creations featuring items from the song
(kudos to anyone managing the dog bite or bee sting lol!!!)

Some entries are just featuring YOUR favourite things which is NOT what the challenge is about.

Here are some designs from the DT to get those creative juices flowing...

Raindrops on roses and brown paper package tied in string

Whiskers on kitten and brown paper package tied in string

Snowflakes that stay on your nose and eyelashes

Such a beautiful background… it's very atmospheric and has captured the colours of Autumn perfectly.

52. Leslie Turner
Love this CAS Christmas Tree Card… the graduated green bows look awesome!
