How Much Is Too Much - Challenge #176

Christmas in July refers to Christmas-themed celebrations held in July. It's a fun time and because the weather is so much cooler, we can celebrate with those traditional foods that we cannot have here in summer. Well, we can have them here in Australia but it's generally way too hot that most of us celebrate with BBQ's, prawns and salad. So let's pull out our Christmas paper and embellishment stashes and put them to use.


2 + photos [at least 2]....I have used 9
1 x Christmas tree image, any size....check
5 x patterned papers, i.e., Christmas patterns,...check
5 x metal embellishments, ...check
and any other embellishment in increments of 5...I have used 5 flowers, 5 stamps and 5 chipboards

Well I enjoyed doing this challenge as I got to scrap some of those Christmas photos I have had hidden away for ages as it all seemed too hard to scrap them. I was going to make a mini album or an off the page item, but here they are years later, still not scrapped. So, I decided to use 9 of the photos on the one layout. They are not the most perfect photos, just happy snaps from that Christmas morning. However, they are perfect in allowing me to remeber the excitement that morning.
Here is my take on the challenge.
