A Jillibean Soup Christmas Cheer Chowder Holiday Layout

Hello there!  Did you have a nice Christmas?  Ours was wonderful, but it always seems to go by way too quickly after preparing for it all month.  ;)

I have a layout I created this time last year using Jillibean Soup's Christmas Cheer Chowder that I never got around to sharing so I figured there's no time like the present.  ;)

To form the base of my page, I cut 2.35" circles on my Silhouette from all my favorite patterned papers to create a border around my layout.  Then for my title I cut the word Bright and an over-sized ampersand using a true-type font (which I hand-stitched with embroidery floss for a little oomph) to go with the "merry" die-cut from the collection.

I printed my journaling on the computer by temporarily adhering the die-cut cards to a piece of office paper before running them through my printer.  As a finishing touch I dressed up the word "bright" and my stars with a bit of glossy accents.

I love the touches of pink in this collection and how well it compliments my daughter's girly toys in the photos!  :)
