Have Yourself a Merry little Christmas

Hi everyone!
Today I am excited to share a sweet page done for the Kraft it up challenge.  One of those effortless pages that flow, just because you have the right photo, the right colors and the right state of mind.  No sketches just a perfect palette to work with
The December challenge is to create a layout using one of these two fabulous non traditional color schemes




I chose the later just because I can't resist pink, plus it was a mom/daughter page!



I chose a Prima mask with some yummy paste.  I wanted it to represent a wreath

Then I started embellishing with some wood pieces I embossed in Queens gold

I used a sweet stamp by Basic Grey to accentuate my twine also embossed in gold
My friend Anastacia gave me those sweet pearls, she wanted me to see what I could do with them, so this one's for You!

This metal band by Tim Holtz is from one of my faves Christmas songs ever, it was the perfect title for my page
I hope you get inspired to play and remember you can not combine this challenge with anything else.
Have fun and thanks for stopping by!

Haha, as soon as I read that, I KNEW you would choose the pink, my friend! How beautiful! LOVE that wreath you made with the stencil and paste. Wow, that is fabulous, and so fun with that adorable photo in the center. Loving the twine tie and metal bookplate, too!

Mmh, you can't resist the pink and then go for only so little of it... But the little is to great effect! A gorgeous page and I agree with Ros: those little pearls are wonderful!

Mmh, you go for pink and then you use so little of it - but to great effect! It's a gorgeous page and I agree with Ros: the pearls are wonderful - your friend knew you'd make something beautiful out of them!
