CTMH December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Close to my Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

This hop will go around in a Circle!  If you get lost, just click here Melinda's page for a complete list of names and blogs so you can get back on track!

You should have arrived from Alyson's.  If you did then you are in the right place and I hope you enjoyed her artwork!

When I saw this stamp set, I just knew that I would have to make a Christmas layout for pictures of the Grandkids.  I can't wait to take the perfect pictures ( I hope I can ).  Here is my Layout!

I had so much fun creating this page and I love the way it turned out.  I used the Cedar and Pine paper, sticker sheet and Compliments for most of it.  I cut the presents out of a sheet from the Holly Jolly paper.  My base pages are French Vanilla!  I fussy cut the Deer and the Sleigh and colored them with our alcohol markers.  The Believe sticker I placed on Sangria paper and then cut it out.

I bet you want to know about my tree!  I got this idea from page 19 of the Nov./ Dec. book.  I used the Cedar and Pine Scrapbooking stamp set, D1878 to create it and then I decorated in with the red Holly Jolly dots.

I used Evergreen for my photo mats and red shimmer trim across the center of the page.

Here is the picture from the book of the layout sample.

I hope you enjoyed my layout, all of the products I used can be found in our Nov/ Dec. book and are available through the end of December while supplies last except for the red shimmer trim, cardstock and inks and markers.  They are all available in our annual book.

Now on to Brenda's blog for more amazing artwork.
