Christmas, a little early

I have to admit that I'm one of the first to gripe when I see Christmas stuff displayed before Halloween, but I've been working on some older photos, and did a 4 page Christmas layout. Shown above are the first two pages, which is all I've got scanned so far.

The stamped heart and stocking are by Imaginations. I colored the stamped designs with Copic markers and glitzed with Stickles. I'm sorry, but I have no clue who manufactured the holly and plaid papers. If I figure it out, I'll post a correction. The bracket shaped background was cut using the Lacy Labels cartridge, and tweaked in my Gypsy to make the shadow mat behind. I think the letters might be from the Plantain Schoolbook cartridge, but I'm not sure of that, either.

The basic design of this layout was scraplifted. It's not the same theme, papers, or embellishments, but a layout on display at the LSS sort of screamed "use me like a sketch!" The LSS layout used a scalloped circle instead of a bracket, but it's a definite scraplift. The layout is essentially the same.
