I made a double page spread of some Christmas party photographs from 2012. I've added some wide Christmas ribbon trim and hand cut holly leaves.
This layout has a very natural and classic Christmas feel to it. The photo features a special teacher at my son's school.. She is a Religion teacher, Art Teacher, Assistant Principal, best friend figure to many students and parents.. So it was an honour creating this page!

We don't have snow at Christmas as it is summer in the southern hemisphere so rather than get caught up in the whole snowflake thing I just used patterned paper and embellishments to create my Christmas page.
I've chosen some large, spotty paper in wintery colours, which (if you squint) kind of evokes a snowy feel, maybe?

Here is what the design team has created for you. Click on their blog links for all the fun details and while there, leave some blog love because I am sure the design team would great appreciate it.
Three Waters Creations
My Christmas tradition is making Christmas and Winter Holiday cards. I scrapbook my cards so that I have a record of each year's theme. These cards are from Holiday 2011. See three other examples, including my 1st ever homemade card at my blog, Three Waters Creations.
My family's tradition has always been that stocking contents are wrapped, and get opened first - kids don't even have to wait for parents. Journalling further is on the pull-out tag.
