I'm back with a Christmas page?

Wow, it's been way too long since my last post! And while it is a bit late now today, I wanted to get something up that I had just finished. I'm really proud of this page. Slowly my pages are starting to have a few more elements...swirls, photo corners and four different patterned papers! oh my! But a Christmas page in April?

Thursday I was busy making Walgreens collage prints with my photos instead of scrapping. As they were having an 80% off sale of their collage prints, I just had to try them out. :) I ended up making about 6 of these prints and you'll probably see them in my next pages. I decided to keep this particular grouping together in the original 5x7 print. It tells the story of our finding, buying and bringing home of our little Christmas tree. We found a nursery selling them two blocks away. And while we were in the car (having done a few other errands before stopping) it was much easier to have DH just walk the tree home rather than have pine needles all over the car for the two block drive.

For this layout I used a past sketch used at Practical Scrappers. I recently found this wonderful blog that has challenges on making use of your craft supplies. I saw this sketch and decided I wanted to try it.

And here's my take:

So with that, I hope you enjoy my little page. I hope to get back to posting on a regular basis again. Thanks for stopping by!

Paper - Patterned (Deja Views, Making Memories - Mistletoe)
Embellishments - Swirl Die Cuts (Sizzix), Thickers (American Crafts), Photo Corners (Heidi Swapp)
