Merry Christmas Tradition (Jan CKC)

I was inspired to make this layout by the new sketch posted at Creative Scrappers. Can I just say how much I love their sketches?!?! If you haven't already checked it out, head that way!

This is the first layout I made using my Christmas Delight Jan CKC kit. I went to my friend Raela's house to scrap in her new craft studio and had an absolute great time. Initially she looked at the completed layout and said..."WoW, that's busy!" I then gave her the sketch I had brought along and she recreated the layout, though she didn't add quite as many embellishments as I did!

I love, love, love how this layout came out!!!

The little phrase in this one was a piece of branding strip left over from last year.

I did add in those little bits of twine to my kit, I love the gold and cream combination!

I messed up the date more than once and finally had to add a bit of tag over it so that it wouldn't look so bad, I was going to replace the entire sticker but then changed my mind and left it as is!

I layered up scrap paper, a couple of journaling spots, the arrow, the trees and a left over branding strip from last year to complete the title.
Thanks for visiting my blog today!!!
