Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone!
Yes I have pre-written this a couple of days ago.....I'm really not that clever that I could fit a blog post into this special day! 
I genuinely hope that everyone has a lovely Christmas and gets to spend some time with the people they love.  There is such a big lead up to the big day, so much prepping and planning (which I genuinely love), so I hope you can take the time to relax and enjoy the precious moments of the day, and really feel the magic and truth of Christmas.
So, my share today for All About Scrapbooks had to be Christmas inspired right?  Of course!
I got to play with the Fancy Pants Wish Season Collection, (this range is full of gorgeous reds, teals, pinks and woodgrain teamed with script words, trees, deers and snowflakes) LOVE IT!
This is what I came up with:
This layout is about one of my absolute favourite parts of Christmas.....the Carols. 
I absolutely adore watching them on television and sing my heart out every year, much to my families dismay. 
Ever since I was a little girl I have desperately wanted to be there. 
This year and last year I went along to the Elder Park Carols in Adelaide!!! Just amazing! An absolute dream come true.
I adored everything about it, and its one of those moments that I want to remember forever - so the best way I know to capture this moment is to scrap it.
I used lots of layers underneath my photo, and the die cuts within this range made it easy to put together. 
I also added some gorgeous chipboard snowflakes from 2 Crafty.  I applied white gesso to them and then added a clear/white glitter.  They look amazing.  The photo doesn't do them justice - they actually really look like snow in real life.  They give the layout texture and sparkle.
Well lots to do, so I'll be back next week. 
Merry Christmas and lots of love, magic and joy to you!
