Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s November Featured Paper Packet, 'Tis The Season.

This Christmas themed paper packet is great for scrapbooking my Christmas photos, and I saw the bold sentiment from the matching Complements and knew I had to use a photo from Christmas Day last year where my boys were wearing their new sunglasses.

I added some of the Complement stars and used a sticker to add the date to my layout. The Christmas memories was stamped and fussy cut. I also stamped some stars for extra detail. (Notice I'm wearing one of the old CTMH Base and Bling necklaces!)

I used some of the Gold glitter paper to look like a gift wrap bow, and added a Poinsettia I cut from the Season of Joy Cricut cartridge. I used the light and dark sides of the Candy Apple cardstock plus a base layer of Ruby to get the different shades. I added some white gems in the middle for dimension.

I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Doreen's Blog.
