Christmas scrapbook page

This week at Winter Wonderland Janet has set the challenge of deck the halls with boughs of holly. She wants to see lots of red, green and holly. I decided to scrap this gorgeous Santa photo which was taken at Universal Studios in Florida as the photo is mainly red and green. Isn't that a great wreath and bow on his sleigh. I cut some circles using an X cut shape cutter and added a swirl and holly made with a Sizzix die and some glitter card. I have used bits of the swirl on cards but it was nice to be able to use the whole thing. I also die cut some swirly corners to match. I made the double bow with my new bow-easy from Quixotic Paperie. I hope you can read the wording at the top of the paper which says "It's the most wonderful time of the year". Now you're all singing it along with me I hope.

I'm very excited as we have just booked to go back to Florida this Christmas, which was unexpected, so we are busy planning what to do. On Wednesday night we made a table reservation for our Christmas lunch in the Magic Kingdom. Only just managed to get a booking. I just love Disney at Christmas and of course there are those wonderful craft shops to visit too.
