Now on to my Christmas Project! I believe this line from My Mind's Eye is about 2 years old!  I actually didn't realize how much Christmas stash I had until I started digging into it for this...mostly paper but wow nonetheless.  
I opted to do a one picture layout which is pretty unusual for me!  I loved this picture of Lucy playing with the Nativity underneath the Christmas tree.  I know she won't be like that forever so I wanted to let it have a page of it's own.  I added a overlay over the top of the picture so you can see there is a little glare on it - but it also says Merry Christmas.  That was from my stash - yay!  I fussy cut some snowflakes and used some die cuts from Authentique and just started building up around the picture.  The banner title and subtitle gave me a vertical pull so I went with that!  After I added all the die cuts/stickers I went for texture and brought out some flair and wood pieces.  I still needed something...had to be sparkle.  So I built sparkle into the whole thing by using little white pearls and gold Stickles.  I can honestly say that before adding those I wasn't thrilled with the layout.  I had set it aside for a couple days hoping for some inspiration.  Alas it came!  I love how in scrapbooking sometimes just adding a little tiny detail can really take your layout to a new level!  

As a Thank You for stopping by today I am going to do a Stash Busting Giveaway of the following Christmas Goodies (sorry about the horrible picture - I will replace it when I get some daylight :) - it includes papers, stickers, trims, and die cuts! I will also throw in some Christmas colors in bakers twine from The Twinery! 
You can do any or all of the following to enter:
1) Become a follower here
2) Like my Scrapping with Christine facebook page
3) Pin any of these projects onto Pinterest
And lastly leave me a comment to let me know which you have done!

This giveaway will remain open until 11:59 pm on August 3rd!  I will announce a winner within a couple days (can't guarantee an exact date as we'll be on vacation with unknown internet access).

Now Hop on Over to the talented Alison's Blog

Cute layout. I agree..sometimes it just takes that one small thing to finally make your layout feel complete and perfect. Yours did just that. hoping to join back in next month.
