Hello Everyone,
I have another layout to share. This one was done with Glenda Viljoen at the RS&E Christmas Day... another layout that I changed to suit my style :) Sorry Glenda :)

I changed my photos from our Christmas getaway at Lords of the Manor into black and white and added them across the layout. 

Here are some close ups.

The paper were from Basic Grey and are beautiful and soft for Christmas. I used some of the tickets from the ephemera sheet for down the side.

The trees were cut in different sizes and just stacked. I love the shadow chipboard pieces which were embossed and the shadow part was painted black and misted with a shimmery green.

I cut the pointsettia flowers out of red shimmery paper with my new die and I just love them.

Another layout done and dusted. I am trying to get all the half finished ones completed and put into albums and I am nearly there.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look :D
