Christmas Layout

The first inspiration layout of  Jennifer Grace's Frosty Festivities 2014 weekend was a Giant Aperture Christmas Layout . . . which I immediately scraplifted! I filled the entire aperture with photos rather than adding patterned paper at the top.



The stocking border strip and the title & date strips were cut from the original invitation for this event. I had two dimensional ornament stickers that worked perfect in the place of Jennifer's journaling spot.


This FUN layout definitely puts me in a festive mood for weekend crafting!
