Colorful Creations Blog Hop ~ Day 2

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the Colorful Creations "Jingle All The Way" Holiday Hop ~ Day 2!!

(Yes, I'm posting early.  Issues with my Blog and not sure how to resolve...
If you have problems while here... I am truly sorry!  Please bare with me!
And, if you have some suggestions on how to resolve it... I'm all ears!)

So... now onto Day 2 of our Hop!

Are you ready for a challenge?  
I have a sketch challenge for you today.

Here's the sketch:
The criteria:  To use a Christmas photo.

That's it!  
Simply use this sketch and add a Christmas photo... and you're in the Challenge!  

This is the layout I created titled, "Oh Christmas Tree."
This is our tree taken several years ago.  I always love to look at the lights and the hundreds of ornaments that take me forever to add  on the tree!  But the end result is so pretty!

Supplies used:
Paper: DCWV, Other
Felt Circle
Pop Dots
Glitter Gems & Swirly Bling: Home Made
Page Title Sticker: Cosmo Cricket
Glitter Tape
EK Success Border Punch
Dome Sticker
Glitter Foam Stockings
Sketch: Cricut Inspired Layout #012

A cluster of gold poinsettia were added at the lower corner of the photo.

Swirly bling flows from the flowers under the photo.

The page title was tucked under the punched border and three tiny glitter foam stockings were added below the title... with tiny bows added at the top of each one.

The circle was cut from felt.  A bit tricky to shape back into a circle... but I got it after awhile.  Three glitter gems were added onto the felt circle at the corner of the photo.  Glitter tape adds just a little more bling to the page.  And... more swirly white bling bursts from the flowers.

More bling was added above the photo.

A closer look at the felt circle and bling.


I hope you enjoyed my layout and I inspired you to start creating!
