Page Drafts Christmas Cheer Release 2013 "Holiday Tradition"

Hello scrappy friends!
Today is the day!  The wait is over and its now time for Page Drafts Christmas Sketch Release!  I'm so excited to be part of this and to share my layout with you!

There are 5 sketches in this fabulous release and they are awesome!  I just love Emma Stafrace's sketch work.  They are so clear and full of detail, making them easy to work with.


I have my layout based on #4, the top middle one.  This one was different from what I've worked with and it really caught my eye so I wanted to give it a shot.

and here is my take...

I went back a few years  This photo is of my kiddos in 2007.  Wow!  How the time flies!  Taking an annual Christmas card photo is a holiday tradition of ours since way back and during this shot they were cracking up.  I just love this and it would have been my pick for the photo card, but they wouldn't hear of it.  So I'm able to scrap it instead.  At least I got to finally show it off!

For this layout I used It's Christmas by Allison Kreft, along with some craft Christmas stickers by Hambly.   I just love this Christmas line and it worked well with the Hambly stickers! 

Here are a couple of close ups for a better look

I had a lot of fun working with this sketch and you can too!  Go check out the Page Drafts blog and their facebook page as well, for details to join in!  I'm sure you will drool over the Christmas inspiration from so many talented designers!  Such awesome work to get your creativeness pumping.  Link up and show off your designs from the PD Christmas Cheer sketches.  Emma would love that and she highly encourages you to do so!  I hope to see some familiar faces!

Thanks for stopping by and happy, scrappy holidays to you!
