I had a great time making my layout based on the sketch. The layout features my daughter Stephanie Pennington in her apartment last Christmas season showcasing her Christmas decorations. She loves the colours black and purple, and so her Christmas decorations were predominantly purple! To represent the hache marks that Becky used in her sketch, I used Gesso – I like the effect, subtle and adds to the snowy effect of the layout. My papers were Bo Bunny Snowy Serenade. The purple ribbon I used were what was used to bundle the pyjamas that I gave Mary and Stephanie this past Christmas. I love it!!! The Christmas balls were photos I printed varying sizes of the Christmas ball that was hanging in Stephanie’s window. This is one of my favourite layouts!!!

Scrapbookers Anonymous also has a challenge this month to use at least 7 flowers in a layout – well – I wanted to meet their challenge so I used 10 miniature flowers in this layout! Check their website out – they have great challenges!!!
