Home For Christmas

I know, I know...it's not even Halloween yet and I am here today talking about Christmas.  :)  Well I know that I am not the first, Christmas cards have been popping up everywhere.  I can't wait.  I try hard to wait until after Halloween to listen to Christmas music, but I must admit, I've already snuck a few songs in.  ;)  I realized that I never scrapped last year's Christmas photos.  And the fabulous Home For Christmas collection from Fancy Pants was sitting right there on my desk, so I pulled them out.

So here's a new layout:


I must admit...this was one of those layouts that did not come together super quickly.  I was never happy with what I made so I would take parts off and keep trying again.  Over and over again.  We all have those layouts.

Anyways, here are some close up's of my layout:


And then I also made a card using the same collection.  I used my sketch here, 225c.  THERE'S STILL TIME TO PLAY ALONG WITH MY SKETCH CHALLENGE!!!  Entries must be received by midnight tomorrow night to be eligible for the prize.

Here's my card:



Well thanks so much for stopping by today!
Have a fabulous day!!

These are wonderful! I love the design on the layout and the big tree as a backdrop for the photo with the smaller pieced tree!

I've snuck a few songs in myself, but then again I tend to listen to it all year. My rule is that I don't make my husband have to listen until after Thanksgiving. LOL! Great layout and card. Love the tree detailing in the background/foreground. :)
