These are the pictures I took with my camera. I will swap these out when my neighbor takes a better photo. When I first saw this stamp set, Hanging Out, I immediately thought of christmas stockings hanging on the fire place even though it is a summer themed stamp set. I went through the CDS designer gallery to see if anyone else had the same idea, but I didn't see one like it. Yay for me! I didn't know what I would do to make it look like the stockings were on the fireplace so I sponged in some red and yellow to give the illusion of a fire. The patterned paper and the tree came from Bitty Scrap-Pads "it's Christmas". I stamped each stocking on a different sheet of PP and then pasted them onto the clothes line.
