December Traditions

My final project for 2013 with Frosted Designs. 2014 brings some exciting developments, so I hope you come back to see more of my work for Frosted Designs in the future!!!  I decided to use more of my gorgeous Prima Holiday Jubilee collection, seeing as it is Christmas Eve!

Here you can see where I've used the gorgeous Prima and Petaloo flowers in the shop! I used the Crafter's Workshop Brick mask with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and stamped with Tropical Gelato in "Snow Cone".

I have lots of layers of the Holiday Jubilee Papers and used some of the Wood Stickers from the collection. I added some pine cones and burlap ribbon from my stash as well, as well as a lovely chipboard stocking from Molossi.

I used gesso to distress and age some of the papers and for a cool effect around my photo. Here you can see the Harlequin Background and Bronte Border stamps from Visible Image Stamps as well. I added some twine from my stash here to focus on my daughter Aine!

I used the gorgeous sketch from Once Upon a Sketch December Challenge to make my layout and journalled about our favorite holiday traditions that make December a favorite month for me. Thank you so much for stopping by!
