Hi friends!  I created this layout as a guest designer for Scrap That! this month.  Look how beautiful these papers are!  This photo of my children was taken a few years ago.  I am trying to catch up on my Christmas photos!  LOL.

The large flower is hand-made.  You can find the tutorial for my Bella Donna flower HERE.

All of the stitching on this layout, including the flourishes, was done by hand.
See the gorgeous holly leaves by The Dusty Attic?
I pleated the gold lace and paper strips and placed them beneath my photo to add dimension and texture.

I adhered the alphabet stickers that came with the kit onto a sheet of patterned paper and cut them out.  I then adhered the letters to my layout using Zapdots (foam squares).

Thank you for visiting me today!  It's always a pleasure having you here!
