Christmas in July

The Paper Variety is having a fun challenge! It's called "Christmas in July". It's a fun way to cool things off now that the temperatures have steadily been rising. I decided to scrap a photo card from our cousins.

The sketch is #163 from Creative Scrappers. I loved all the small squares. While I was searching for scraps to use, I ran across a stack from Anna Griffin. She has the most elegant papers! I was trying to figure out how to get all these little squares without chopping up quite a few sheets of 12 x 12 paper. Then it hit me....just use the cover of the stack! The sizes of the sample squares were just perfect!

The chipboard pieces are from K&Company, with a bit of gold cord and some poinsettias stickers. The bottom left corner was embellished with a few Christmas buttons from the stash.

This page really took my mind off of the sunburn...time for more lotion!
