Yuletide Layout


For the first time ever we sent to a studio and Christmas pictures take of Simon! I did pretty good getting 1 of the 3 pictures on a layout before Christmas. I have to get the two other pictures printed still. The Yuletide Carol paper and coordinating complements were perfect for these pictures. 







In addition to the Yuletide Carol paper I added some Gold Glitter Paper. I used the Art Philosophy Cartridge from Close to My Heart to cut the presents. 

All products can be purchased on my website.
