First, I want to thank everyone who left such lovely comments. They were much appreciated! Using my random number picker (a/k/a asking the Hubster to pick a number between 1 and 21), the winner of the free Pretty Little Studio flair is Jenny Kozar! Jenny, if you will send me an email (send to firstname.lastname@example.org) with you address, I will get your flair sent to you post haste!
Now, on to a little layout I recently finished using one of my new favorite Christmas lines - that's right, it is Pretty Little Studio's WOODLAND CHRISTMAS COLLECTION.
Let me tell you, the second I saw the Fir Tree paper which is covered in the stars you see on my layout, I knew I would be fussy cutting and using them on a project. Then, when the Huntress decided she wanted to go out and gaze at the stars a day or two later, I knew my layout was meant to be! *smile*
My heart-rate also increased a little when I saw all the yummy vellum that is included in this holiday collection. Seriously, big festive stars and vellum - my perfect scrapbook supplies cup runneth over! Just look how cute these are together:
I outlined my stars so they don't blend in too much with my white background, and I tilted up the corners to give them a more three-dimensional appearance.
I added a couple of clusters around my photo along with a little journaling to complete my layout...
and, voila! I was done. What Christmas collections are your favorites this year? Have you used your holiday papers for non-Christmas layouts (such as I have done here)?
