Today Designer June is sharing her beautiful Christmas layout
inspired by the
December Sketch + Word challenge:

 June said this about her layout:
"Merry Christmas Eve, SOS fans! Thanks for stopping over to celebrate with us!

This is my last post as a DT with Scrap Our Stash. It has been great working with this talented team and a big shout out to Brenda and Rochelle for making things run so smoothly behind the scenes.

Our family's Christmas kick-off is our annual trip to the Albert and Santa show. We have been doing this for 14 years now - and it is just as magical!

This page, made with Quick Quotes Serenade papers, follows the sketch pretty closely, except I replaced the background triangle with a circle to soften the lines. For the word challenge, I used:
P - poinsettia flowers
E - enamel element
A - accents in gold
C - chipboard title
E - ephemera

If you would like to see more about this page or continue to follow my work, you can always find me at my blog Super Stick Chick (http://superstickchick.blogspot.com/). Thank you for joining us for the holidays.
