Well, I don't know about you, but the cold weather and the upcoming holidays have me dreaming of quiet times snuggled into a leopard print snuggie (so I can have my hands free, of course!) and scrapping by the fire! There are so many beautiful layouts, holiday, winter and everything else that add some sparkle to the season, that the Creative Team had a hard time choosing favorites this month! With a little arm twisting, and some bribing with cookies and milk, we got it done!
Fun and Funky by scrappininAK
was chosen by Cindy (kimandasmo), who says, "I adore the film strip and the placement of the photo within it...as well as the swirl as the perfect embellishment. The outer border is adorable as well. This is just an overall awesome design!"
My Everything by k_arledge
was chosen by Beth W. Beth says, "I loved this page's photo, color scheme and amazing design. The layering complemented the page so well and the bling, flowers and distressing were the perfect finishing touches."
Boo by scrapsakes
was chosen by Sus (suslvsgeo), because she loves layouts with lots of details and fun things to look at and she thinks no one does it better than Scrapsakes.
In The Meadow We Can Build A Snowman by mdjsburns
is SarahA's choice. Sarah says, "This fun layout just pops out of the gallery at you. I love the bright colors, fun layers and lots of bling! I also love the use of the die cut papers!"
Cozy by anderjackie
was chosen by Megan (megamay), who just loves how sweet and pretty this is while still being wintery. She also loves the glimmer mist and all the details!
Christmas 2009 Mini Album by LisaDorsey
was chosen by Pam (4peasinourpod) because she adores mini-albums, and this one is incredible! It is chockful of wonderful elements, from tabs, to bling, to lace. It is the perfect gift!
Christmas Time by Desire
was chosen by Angela (bluejeans7). Angela says, "I love this entire two page layout! From the colors, to the design (which has great flow), to all the little details and cute photos. Beautifully done!"
Holiday Box by Fabinou
was chosen by JulianaM. Juliana loves altered objects and could not resist this gorgeous altered chocolate box created by Fabinou! The vintage feel is perfect for such a timeless treat!
Jingle Bells by Bernadette
was chosen by Laura Fiore. Laura says, Bernadette never fails to combine amazing photos with just the perfect elements to show them off. I love the multi-colored bling on this, as well as the ribbons tied around her title letters!
Rejoice by Gracepunches5
was chosen by Dianedi. Diane loves the impact of using a bold title and the fantastic use of white space with this one photo design. The angle of the photo, glittered embellishments, and beautiful ribbon make this is a wonderful layout!
Christmas Card by eilaeila
was chosen by Jess (ScrapGoo). Jess thinks the details on this card are just stunning. The cinnamon stick perch for the hand cut bird is perfect for the season and a really inspired touch!
Merry Christmas by Sandi770
was chosen by Jules (inParadise). Jules says, "I love the contrast in the colors in this layout. The red stands out so beautifully against the green and the pictures just pop."
