The Paper Bakery | It's Christmas Time!

'Tis the season for Christmas layouts ;) 

The day we had this photo taken wasn’t a day we had planned to see Santa. The kids weren’t dressed in anything christmas-y looking and it wasn’t the place we usually go with the beautiful backdrop that looks so pretty in photos. But, we ended up having pictures taken and wouldn’t you know, I love it!  Once again I am reminded that sometimes it’s not so much about the photo itself, but the memories that go along with them.
I used the "Holiday Charm" scrapbooking kit from the Paper Bakery, I especially like the North Pole paper by Echo Park, perfect for photos with Santa. The cute stars were cut with my Silhouette along with November cut files, and of course I had to add a few shiny red sequins!

Thanks for stopping by today, Happy Holidays!

Is the "Half-Snowflake" border a punch or a cut file. It is gorgeous!!!

Thanks, Mary Ann. I actually stumbled upon it since I posted. IT. IS . ON. THE. LIST! LOL! Hope you get the blog thing worked out. I regularly forward your blog posts to my list of scrappy girlfriends for layout ideas, and THEY LOVE IT. I always get comments or even pictures of their scraplifts. Thanks for doing the blogwork and encouraging us with your creativity. Keep up the good work! Have a great week.
