Hello wonderful scrappers!  Cheryl here to bring you my picks from around Digi Land today.   Christmas and winter layouts abound and I had a difficult time picking my favorites because there were so many of them.  I finally was successful in pruning my list down to six layouts and here they are.

First up is Finish The Sentence Challenge by Bright Eyes

What a heartwarming page this is.  The beautiful home in the background surrounded by snow laden trees and the brightly dressed children playing in front – delightful!  The girl standing on the steps is the perfect touch and adds so much dimension to the page.   The wonderful blending and darker border really tie everything together and puts a bow on this present!

Drop Biscuits by cnewby makes my mouth water, as well as being a feast for the eyes.  What a festive cookbook effect with all of the clippings tucked under the page; which is exactly what I do in a cooking journal.  The picture of the drop biscuits is perfection and so are all of the brightly colored elements scattered all around the page.  I love the sweet little strand of lights, too.

Wonderful by crazycat1126 has the perfect title – it is “wonderful”.   Short for “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”. I’m in love with the picture of the tree, along with the amazing bokeh!  The smaller picture is gorgeous, with the reflection of the room in it!  The rest of the page adds layers of delight, from the dark background to the sweet journal cards and Christmas elements.

Winter by Scrappie Irene is my next pick.  This caught my eye right away, with the sweet baby holding it’s own picture.  What a clever and unique page.  The greenery surrounding the picture, the plaid bow and the perfect collection of small elements make this page a winner for me.

Santa is Coming by little pixie is my next pick.  I think this page is absolutely magical.  The Christmas, snow scene that’s depicted on this page is beauty in itself.  It’s reminiscent of quieter, gentler times when people bundled up and took the sleigh “over the river and through the woods”.  What put the cherry on top for me is the large snow globe effect!  Just wonderful!

Last but certainly not least is  Little Things by bbe.  Is there anything much cuter than kids wearing Santa hats?  These pictures are priceless, and I can’t keep from smiling when I look at all of the expressions on this little face.  The two black and white pictures are a nice touch, too.  LOVE the torn paper behind the pictures and the dark background.  It’s the little things in life we cherish most, as the title reads.

That will do it for me today.  I won’t see you again until next year.  We’re going to take a little break so we can finish up our Christmas shopping, cooking, baking or just hanging with our families.  I’ll see you again after the holidays.  Wishing you and yours a blessed and peaceful Christmas.

Cheryl
