Joyeux Noel

The final reveal for 2015 at My Creative Sketches sees our DT layouts inspired by this lovely sketch by Liz Chidester.

For my layout, I used papers from Graphic 45's The Twelve Days Of Christmas collection, which I again water-distressed for added texture. The photos, of my girls and my mum-in-law, were taken some years ago during our trip to Tokyo Disney.

I applied distressed ink onto parts of the background paper using a mask, and then embellished the layout with flowers and brads from Prima Marketing, as well as some lovely pearl strands from my stash.

Here are some close-up shots.

Now hop on over to the MCS blog for more DT inspiration, and also check out the wonderful prize that's been put together for the lucky winner this month.

Merry Christmas!
