Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

I know, I know – Thanksgiving is not even over yet and I’m thinking of Christmas!!

Anyhow, Christmas was and is on my mind as I created this Christmas layout for Creative Vision Clear Stamps. This one actually stumped me a little – since I chose a sentiment stamp sets to work with. I was wonder how I would be creating an entire layout with just sentiments. But as I looked through the stamp set that Laura has given me, I discovered that her sentiment stamps are so versatile for many different forms of occasions. The one I used on my last Creative Vision blog hop post is from a Christmas set but I could actually use for all holiday seasons. And I actually found a very appropriate one for the picture I am using for the layout.

Here is a sketch I was working with:

I didn’t follow the sketch exactly but used it as a spring board for inspiration instead. I flipped the sketch vertically and flower border was my impetus for my Christmas tree cutout on my layout … the rest as they say is history. Here is my layout:

Don’t you think the sentiment is so appropriate to the photo – I had a chuckle when I saw that. The sentiment came from set CV0076 Holiday Sentiment. Enjoy!
