O Christmas Tree Layout

Here is a layout that I worked on the last couple days (yeah, I'm slow) that uses the new "Christmouse Caroling" pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.  I LOVE how this turned out.

I knew I wanted to use some Teresa Collins Christmas Tree paper that I bought at Expo last month and thought this pattern would work well with it. Honestly, I set out to make this a school Christmas program layout but then one on my fellow LSHD Design Team members posted on Facebook some pictures of her and her family setting up their Christmas tree and that took my design thought process in a whole different direction.  Side note:  We usually wait until AFTER Thanksgiving to even think about putting up our tree but, hey, my DT pal lives in Canada and they've already HAD their Thanksgiving LOL!!!

Anyway,  I could totally see these little mice singing 'O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, How lovely are your branches' and so my layout is now all about the tree...  Can't wait to take pictures of our tree this year and put them on this layout.

These caroling mice are just so stinkin' cute!  The little guy in the middle just makes me smile!

Since there's singing going on here, I thought using some music sheet patterned paper as part of my circle mat worked perfectly!  I also used some Core'dinations glitter paper on this layout to give it a little "snowy" sparkle.

I designed the title in SCAL2 and used a font called Kingthings Petrock because I thought it looked a little Victorian and would go nicely with the mice. The title is also matted in Core'dinations glitter papers.

This pattern turned out so awesome so I'm still thinking about making another set and doing that school Christmas program layout afterall...hmmm.....

Until next time...Happy Scrapping!
