Adriana uses the new Christmas papers


Adriana has created a fabulous layout using the new papers & she calls is 'Winter Wonderland'

'Winter Wonderland – Merry Christmas layout

Adriana says, “In Australia when we celebrate Christmas time we are in our summer. Usually our Christmas time is spent going to the beach, having BBQ’s, eating seafood, relaxing with friends and family. But in the northern hemisphere Christmas is celebrated in the middle of their Winter. Lots of snow, cold temperatures but it is a beautiful sight. One day, I would like to experience a wonderful White Christmas. I created a page showcasing the new papers Designed by Denise Ann and available from Meg’s Garden.

This new paper collection is called “Musical Christmas”

So rich in colour, with accents of blue, gold and white.

The background paper is “Plum Pudding” and the banner words are from the small strip that comes with the

“Noel Noel” paper. Using the German scrap border to decorate the edges and photos, they just highlight the colours in these gorgeous papers.

I just love that song “Winter Wonderland” so I printed the words of that song and included them on my layout.

Thanks for looking.'

Fabulous layout Adriana - well done
Love the gold highlights on the fruit;  the die cut snow flakes are gorgeous - love the combination of the gold & white.  The white german scrap accents the rich & deep tones of the papers extremely well.

Having lived in the winter snows of upstate New York for many years, I can advise that the snow is not fun. Blizzards closed the City down for days several times with non emergency traffic not allowed; the Army reseerves were called in twice to clear snow; I can remember driving home on the expressway at 15 mph following the car in front (all traffic with emergency blinkers on) & hoping that he was on the road & could see in front - not fun at all. Supermarkets were closed!
Do not miss it - I still will not wear boots - they are reminders of having to & they were not cute boots.

Bye for now
