I've been away from my craft desk because I've been spending some time here:
Here's a Christmas layout I did using My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Christmas collection:
I love this collection from MME. The papers are double-sided and have good weight to them. Gorgeous rich colours, and the glitter does not fall off - very nice to work with.
(Note: Plus it doesn't smell - there are some glittered papers out this year that have such a strong odour from the UV process that I've had to air them out in my garage for 3 weeks. A good reason to buy from your LSS, where you can touch and smell before purchase!)
I found the MME paper is so beautiful with its glittered borders and embellishments, that it seemed to call for a simple treatment.
I detail-cut the holly leaf so it would overlap the photo at the bottom L:
I adhered a MME embellishment with trim, popped on a bead, a button, a tiny twine bow.
Some vintage lace trim. two journalling cards, and voila - merry & bright!
We are all looking forward to our Christmas reunion up north, where the fun will start all over again soon.
