Christmas on the brain

I've been thinking about Christmas for a while now.

I'll be doing a show in the gallery at Impresario Artisan Market for the month of December with sugar plum fairies, twinkly lights and all that good magical stuff. More details to come...

BUT what kicked off the whole 'Yule-brain' this year was my Graphic 45 CHA assignment to create a layout with 12 Days of Christmas.

It should be said here: I am not a scrapbooker. Those of you who are, well, you have my respect because it seems scrapbooking and knitting are my crafting kryptonite. :) Still onward I charged...

The 12 Days of Christmas collection is so lovely. It reminds me of British yuletide celebrations with plum puddings and paper crackers. I hope this layout reflects a quirky English Christmas complete with strange relatives, funny hats and handmade buntings. P.S. I don't think it would be possible for me to love Petaloo flowers any more. They are sooooo beautiful to work with.
