Decorations *Once upon a sketch*

Welcome everyone to another challenge at Once Upon A...Sketch. We are already in December and the end of the year is just around the corner.

December 1st Challenge

Journalling Criteria/theme: The thing I look most forward to in December

Write at least 2 sentences on what you look forward to in the next month. December is a festive month so your journalling could be about the Christmas season, the holidays, the presents or if you do not celebrate Christmas what does December bring for you that you look most forward to? Note:You layout DOES NOT have to be about Christmas! It can be about anything December brings. 

 Other ideas for journalling: an annual holiday or celebration, a specific event such as putting up the Christmas tree or pre Christmas traditions you might have leading up to Christmas, family time, snow covered fields or warmer weather, time off work, school holidays, change of weather, new season fruit. 

And this is my take on the challenge! I love the happy faces when we decorate our tree! We always listen to Christmas songs and we sing all together! It is such a lovely day to remember each year!!!

To make this layout I used the Webster's Botanical Christmas kit from Enjoy Scrapping!
I have already made 2 layouts and a mini album out of this kit and there are scraps left to even make some cards!!! Beautiful Christmas kit!!!

Great take on the sketch (and a fun sketch, too). I love all the white splats - looks like snow!
