Stick it Down December double page

I'm super excited to be feature this month over at Stick it Down.

Here's the sketch I based my layout on. 
 I was looking at two different options for this layout
1. I still need to do graduation picture for my oldest, but when I looked at cropping the photos to the smaller sizes on the right-hand page, I figured it wouldn't work out.  

So, onto option 2. Swag sale- I had a bunch of photos of the evergreen swags Danielle and I made and cutting them down a bit didn't really take away from the overall photos.

Even though the photos are of evergreen swags for Christmas decorations I wasn't feeling the traditional colors associated with Christmas.  The Swags even sported bright icy blues, lime greens and Silver/ White adornments.  My layout definitely reflects our color choice.  I opted not to use the big bow on the sketch as it also felt traditional.  I also substituted felt flowers and hand drawn leaves for the holly embellishments. Totally love how this turned out.  

I can't wait to see what you come up with
