Another Christmas Scrapbook Layout

Hi Everyone,

On my last post, I believe I mentioned that the Sparkle N Sprinkle Designers project for December was scrapbook layouts. My last post showed the cute whimsical layout I made using my cats as the subject. This layout utilized pic's of friends on Christmas Eve. I went to Robin's house for Christmas Eve, as I do every year, and she always decorates to the hilt! Her home is always in perfect order. Her trees are always perfectly decorated and I thought that would be my inspiration for this layout, the guests at her party. I took a few pictures of Robin and some of the others at her Christmas Eve get together and that got me started.

In planning this layout,  I picked out a beautiful gold/yellow scrapbook page and decided to make a fir tree stamping a pine sprig to resemble a pine tree.Next I used holly dies to add a border on the right edge. Then  came the poinsettias and the punched border. Lastly I added pictures and letters that I glittered.

This was a fun project and I will be doing more layouts, I'm sure.

I am submitting this in the following challenges:

I just love your poinsettia "swag" Barbara. Sooo much hand cutting, but it was totally worth it - they're just stunning!
