Scrap-it-Lah December Challenge/Prima BAP {Our Kids - Christmas Layout}

 This is my Design Team layout for my December challenge
over at Scrap-it-Lah where I used the November Prima BAP
sketch because I had so much awesome Prima stash that I
knew would be just perfect for this challenge!

I rotated the sketch one turn to the left. To 
take part in the December challenge over at 
Scrap-it-Lah you need to please include:-

Multi-photo layout using Christmas photos   
(at least 3) or, if you don’t celebrate Christmas, 
photos from a similar celebration (no birthdays 
please!) Glitter or glimmer mist somewhere on 
your layout.   Traditional Christmas colours of red/
green/gold (compulsory)  plus only ONE other
colour  OF YOUR CHOICE (Both plain and printed 
papers are fine as long as you stick to the colours).

I created a Picasa collage of the photos I take 
of the kids every year to send out with our 
Christmas e mail.

 I didn't add any glitter or glimmer-mist because my 
Prima flowers came already glittered up - awesome!!

I did use a Crafter's Workshop stencil though but I 
inked through it instead of using glimmer-mist as I 
was after a deep brown colour.

 The extra colour I introduced to my red/gold/green
palette is of course BROWN! 

I used an absolute HEAP of Prima stash up on
this layout and it felt GOOD!  Its been too long!!

Did some fussy-cutting there too!  And got to use 
some BLING and some VINES that I split up...

ALL the papers are Prima - except for the cardstock
of  course.  Even the felt flowers are Prima - I cut
them in half so they look like they are peeking out :)
