Christmas is coming!

I recently proclaimed to my friends I was never doing another Christmas page, I'm so over the same looking pages, but I just fell in love with the adorable sassy style of this new October Afternoon Collection. It's so fresh and different.  I have been doing a ton of digital scrapbooking and it felt so good to get back to the traditions of scissors, paper and glue! This page went so fast I was almost sad when it was over, but I'm seeing card making in the future. My style is all about collage whether it's digital or tradition scrapbooking, I love fitting all the layer and pieces together it's like a little puzzle. 
This page was created for the December 1st challenge at OUAS, Nadia and her teams have come up with another wonderful sketch and journaling theme. Here's my take on it!

*The acetate circle is from Glitz beautiful dreamer transparencies.

December 1st Challenge
Journalling Criteria/theme: The thing I look most forward to in December.
Write at least 2 sentences on what you look forward to in the next month. December is a festive month so your journalling could be about the Christmas season, the holidays, the presents or if you do not celebrate Christmas what does December bring for you that you look most forward to? Note:You layout DOES NOT have to be about Christmas! It can be about anything December brings.
Other ideas for journalling: an annual holiday or celebration, a specific event such as putting up the Christmas tree or pre Christmas traditions you might have leading up to Christmas, family time, snow covered fields or warmer weather, time off work, school holidays, change of weather, new season fruit.
Come play along with us!
