Holly Jolly Christmas layout

Happy Monday!  I wish a Merry Christmas to all of you!  My family will all be home spending the day together and I am looking forward to it so much.  The tree is lit up and the packages are all wrapped, just a little baking left to do, which is always a challenge as the kids eat all the cookies as fast as they are baked.    

My Christmas layout for the BBTB2 holiday challenge, which will run for 2 weeks over at the BBTB2 site, features holly and a wreath plus the fun holly jolly title on some old DCWV paper from the stash.  It came together pretty quickly and is all ready for those Christmas Day photos!  I hope everyone is able to have some moments of Christmas cheer during this holiday season.

xmas ornaments

 Happy Monday!  December is here and that means Christmas!  The challenge theme at BBTB2 is to use a cricut cut Christmas ornament on a project.  I always make Christmas cards for the special people in my life, so I made 10 of these Christmas cards featuring an ornament from the Anna's Winter Wonderland image collection.  While you can't see it on this photo, the white ornament and berries and the gold are shimmer paper, so the card looks prettier in person.  I used the SU softly falling embossing folder behind it for some texture.  Very happy with how it turned out!  You can check out the rest of the designer's projects over at the BBTB2 site and link up projects for the next two weeks.
