The Paper Variety Challenge #41

I am so excited today to share with you my very first layout done for The Paper Variety's Design Team!

The theme for this week's challenge is...
So rummage through your old Christmas pictures and get in the spirit (a little ahead of time - hehe)!  Normally, TPV only accepts one entry per person per week, but as a gift to you, for this week only, you can enter as many projects as you want!  Entries are due by the evening of Sunday July 10th (EST) for a chance to be included in the spotlight and by Tuesday July 12th at noon (EST) to be included for the prize.  

And what is the prize, you ask?
This fabulous kit (i wish i could have a chance to win it myself!) sponsored by

My goal as a DT member for The Paper Variety is to make a double-page layout every 2 weeks so as to adhere to all the lovers of double-pages out there who might feel a bit left out sometimes because single pages seem to be a bit more prominent on most of the blogs out there. Ever since i've started scrapbooking, i've made double-pages so they come more naturally for me, and i like the way they look in an album.

Here is my Christmas layout using an older BoBunny collection!

As you can see, the pictures date back to 2006 meaning that i am a little behind in my Christmas scrapbooking.  So, needless to say, i was excited to see this week's challenge!

  5. Je dois faire un autre commentaire, car j'ai fait le premier au travail sur mon heure de dîner (chut!)et je l'ai fait trop vite. Ta page est vraiment super et inspirante. Tu es vraiment courageuse d'avoir fait toute cette couture. Wow! Ça donne tout un effet! Bravo!

  6. Nicole, this is just STUNNING! I love all of the details you've put in this LO ... the stitching and rhinestones on the snowflakes are an awesome touch! I love how you fussy cut all of the trees too ... I'm very excited to get to work with you ...
