"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!"

Can you believe that Christmas Eve is next Monday?! Just a week away!!! I'm excited!
And I'm also excited about and so love the theme of our challenge this week at Exploring Cricut. "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!". We would love for you to create a new (no back links please) card, layout or papercraft of you favorite Christmas idea using a Cricut cut. I wasn't real sure exactly what Diane meant here, so I went with what I felt might be right. I decided to not make a card for this challenge. I Know!!! Cards are my most favorite things to make. But I needed another layout page for Christmas. We do have a few (okay-9) grands and I wanted a page for each family. For my layout, I used the Santa/Sleigh that can be found on the Teresa Collins December 25th cartridge. You can find it at the #23 spot on the overlay. I cut it at 4 inches. The trees are from the Christmas cartridge. They are at the #43 spot on the overlay. I cut them at 10 inches. I then coated the snow with Frosted Lace Stickles. I even dabbled some up the sides of the trees. The bg cardstock is from Making Memories-Postage Stripe Noel from 2010. I backed it with a piece of red cardstock to give it a little more stability.
I decided to not put a photo mat on it. I will just place a photo in the open space.
Head over and check out what my DT Sisters and Brother have created for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!! And then head to your crafty space and create a new Christmas project using a Cricut cut and link it so we can come by and admire it. You have until 10pm EST, Saturday, December 22nd. Hope ya'll like my layout!!!! :)

Hi, Sharon. If I miss some of your posts, I'm sorry. My computer crashed and I'm working off my tablet. I love this l/o. That is a gorgeous silhouette. I seem to have overlooked that one.
