{Christmas in August}

We've all heard of Christmas in July, but what about Christmas in mid-August? I used the "Christmas at Home" collection by Pretty Little Studio by focusing on the red, white & blue papers and embellishments and leaving out anything green or that had a Christmas theme to it. Although if you look really close, one of the banner flags does have words to "Twas the Night Before Christmas" I don't think anyone will ever notice ;)
 
I used a mix of the Deck the Halls Paper Ribbons and the Merry and Bright Bunting Flags to make the cute banner, and also added in the Festive Bookmark Tag as part of the banner and for my journaling too. I stitched everything down using a zig zag stitch on my sewing machine, then added a flair button and a title cut with my Silhouette.
Another layout completed for the family history album!

Thanks for stopping by!
