TPV Challenge #63 - Falalalala!

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..."

This week, The Paper Variety wants you to...
You must know the rules by now...  
Link up your project HERE for a chance to win these goodies from My Mind's Eye (i wish i could play too to have a shot at that awesome prize!!!)

The song that inspired me was the one i was singing at the beginning of my post!
 I made myself an early Christmas gift while creating this layout - mixing 2 things that i adore:  double-pages & Christmas!  These pictures were taken a few years back while on a visit to Santa's Village!  The title "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" and the papers from the Basic Grey collection 'Eskimo Kisses' seemed to suit the theme perfectly!  

I was also inspired by this double-page sketch from the BasicGrey Blog

... and the BG December Flickr Friends theme which is: STITCHING 
(and god only knows, i have been doing a lot of that lately - my carpal tunnel infested fingers could attest to it!)

So hopefully, this layout will get you in the Holiday spirit if you aren't already.

Psst... I have a confession to make.  As much as i love Christmas, i have to say that i had not been feeling too Christmassy so far (i haven't even made one Christmas card yet, believe it or not! SOOoo not acceptable)... but i'm slowly getting there.  Working on this layout sure has helped me get in the festive mood!  I am now ready for some heavy duty card-making on the weekend!
