An Old Fashioned Christmas Tilda Style

I hope if you celebrated Thanksgiving that you had a wonderful holiday. I had a wonderful weekend but I ate too much.

Today is my last post as a guest designer for 7 Kids College Fund. I hope my project inspires you to create a Christmas project.  It took me quite some time to get this project together. And sorry about the pictures I took a lot but couldn't quite get them to look they way I wanted.

You can find the following products over at 7 Kids College Fund:
Graphic 45 - Christmas Emporium & Place in Time Paper
Authentique Paper - Peaceful
Echo Park Paper - A Very Merry Christmas
Cryogen Paper
