Christmas Bliss

Hey ya'll! So Christmas is in 38 days!!! Holy @#*^$%%#!! Where has this year gone?
In honor of the big holiday coming up, I wanted to share a layout I did using the Scrap Friends sketch (#7). Here is the great sketch!

And here is my layout:
I used Riddersholm's "The Day Before Christmas" line. The papers are so exquisite and have a vintage feel to them. I started by splattering black ink on my background paper. I then added several pieces of papers from this line that I cut into banners & distressed them.
I layered some burlap & brown tissue paper under my photo, added punched circles of cardstock (which I added some glitter to), applied some rub-ons from 7 Gypsies, and tucked in some twine bows.
My alphas are from Prima and I inked aroung them with a black marker then added some white paint at the edges with a cotton swab. I also added white paint randomly around the edge of the layout. I love how this effect looks like snow!  The bird and the bell were fussy cut from another sheet of the Riddersholm papers.

The Flying Unicorn is having a sale that runs through the end of the month-20% off all holiday products!!! I am really getting into the Christmas spirit! Hope you all are too and that you remember to take advantage of this wonderful sale!!

Here is another layout that I made recently & haven't had the opportunity to share. I used the November kit from the Flying Unicorn!

I am having the best time scrapping old Christmas photos! These are all from Christmas day of 2008. The kids were so little!! It's fun to look back on them. My days have been spent recently scrapping while listening to Christmas music! I am in heaven!! This is my favorite time of the year!
Happy Saturday ya'll! Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
