A Second Dose of Christmas!

Well, Christmas is over and I am looking forward to the New Year, but with all of the tons of photos I took during Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, it looks like I'll still be re-living it for a while!  :)  I gave up scrapping in order a while back, because I felt like it limited my creativity.  I still add my layouts to my album chronologically, but I usually work within a 6 month time frame - right now I think it's more like 8 months.  One day I might do an Easter layout, the next day one for the 4th of July and today I am posting one from Christmas Day.  

I actually did this one for the December Pinterest Challenge at Club CK this week.  You get to choose from 5 photos and use one of them as inspiration for your layout or project.  It's a pretty fun challenge and I always try to play along every month.  I have to admit though, that this layout was not cooperating with me when I was working on it last night.  I just felt like I couldn't make it do what I wanted, but I think it ultimately turned out to be a pretty cute page.


I chose this photo as my inspiration because I really loved the crocheted look around the jars and I have some great trim by The Paper Studio that resembles that look.  I also loved the cream and white mixed together, with the pops of red.
