Once again Em from PAGE DRAFTS has created 5 outstanding sketches to inspire as well as Tips and Tricks to do with the festive season. I have created 2 layouts using 2 of the wonderful sketches.

That color looks so pretty with white..

Baby it's cold outside..(college of closies..)
 The design team were lucky to receive some gorgeous embellishments from CHARMS CREATIONS to use on our layouts and I used the whole set on my layout.. Thanks Charms Creations..

The grey color just made me think of a wintery layout! Lots of dies, a hint of texture paste and Charms Creations embellishments..
