25th December

This is the second layout that I have previously shown as a sneaky peek.  I used patterned papers from the fab Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Kit.

I used 'Medallion' Patterned paper (reverse side) as the base and added a strip of Bazzill Ivy cardstock across the middle, adding faux stitching around the outside edge of the layout.

I used two photographs that were taken with a Polaroid camera, hence the white border.  The photo's were added to the layout on a mat of Red Snowflakes patterned paper (reverse side) and some of the banner shapes from the accessories sheet.  I made the Christmas trees from some of the banner shapes, adding some gems to complete.

The title was made by creating a 4" circle (cut in half), to which I added 25th in American Crafts Thickers and the 'December' is a sentiment from the accessories sheet, which is included in the collection kit.

I really enjoyed using this kit as the colours were more suited to some of my older photographs.  I had a lovely trip down memory lane making up the layouts!

Thanks for stopping by today.  If you leave a comment I will enter your name into the draw for the blog candy (see rules).
