My Once Upon A Sketch Challenge
My 2 Crafty DT Reveal Part Three
"Christmas Eve"

Hello & welcome back.
Today I have part three of  my DT reveal for 2 Crafty Chipboard.
I have also based this layout on the current challenge over at
Once Upon A Sketch.
This is their sketch & the journalling criteria this month is
"My favourite month". Well thats an easy one as I just adore
Christmas so December is definitely my most favourite month.
I have journalled a story on the back of my layout about how much
 I love Christmas & the reasons it is so special to me. It is not just Christmas
day but the entire month of December with all the preparations, from putting
 up the tree & decorating the house to buying presents, catching up with friends,
going to Christmas parties, remembering loved ones that are no longer with us,
 the list just goes on & on. It truly is a wonderful
time of year & so definitely my favourite month.

For this one I have gone with silver, white & aqua. Love this 
colour palette. I started off with a mixed media background
including some glitter, which unfortunately just doesn't show
up in these photos. Such a shame.

The first chippie piece I used was one of the many Christmas titles that 2 Crafty have 
available. I thought this "Christmas Eve" title was just perfect for my photo.
I have also added a few "Holly Leaves" from a multi pack.

In this pic you can see I have used another of their new release pieces, the "Holly Flourish".
How beautiful is this piece. So wonderfully fine & pretty. Love these.

I have also included lots of beautiful Green Tara silk flowers, some of their gorgeous
Crystal Sprays, just perfect for this layout, as well a one of their little silver
flower sprays too.

Here you can see I have used a pair of "Blitzen" reindeer. I adore the flourishy
style of their antlers. A perfect match for the Holly Flourish, don't you think ?

Well that wraps up yet another Christmas layout I can tick off my list.
I hope I have inspired you in some small way to check out some of
the fabulous 2 Crafty Christmas chipboard for your next layout.
 They have so many great pieces.

Until next time.
