December 23

                   Merry Christmas (Creative Embellishment DT)


 Merry Christmas everyone!!!  Kathleen here to share this Christmas layout I made for my beautiful Southern Belle of a sister.  Have you ever seen a Mark Roberts fairy?  Well this layout is like one of those filled with tons of color and things to delight the senses like these delicious Creative Embellishment snowflakes, ornament and tree.

All of the chipboard elements received a coat of gesso followed by a coat of different gorgeous Shimmerz paints.

Bling, you can't Christmas/holidays without sparkle.  I applied different colored gems and flourishes through out.  I just wish you could see the sparkle in person.  The camera just doesn't do it justice!
Here are a few close ups.

Scrap Africa asked us to journal what a typical December is like where we live.  This is a time for family gathering together enjoying good food, music, laughter and loads of love.  Since my family is scattered in the wind I don't get to see all of them in the same year.  I hope you all are enjoying your holiday traditions.
  Thank you for joining me and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas.
