Graphic45 Christmas Emporium Layout

I LOVE Christmas papers...and I double LOVE vintage Christmas papers. So, when I saw the new Christmas Emporium paper from Graphic45...I was so happy I almost piddled on the floor!

Seriously?! What's not to love?!

Now, loving the paper is one thing, using the paper is another story. I am NOTORIOUS for taking bad photos at Christmas. Not sure if it's my camera settings, the tree lights, operator error...something! I was searching and searching for a good photo to use for my CHA sample. I finally found one of my youngest, taken when he was about 2 years old. (He's almost 11 now!) But, man he was cute!

For my background I used the Graphic45 Timeless collection from Core'dinations. It's so pretty! Love the texture! (Click on the photo for a larger view!)

I love to create collages with my chipboard elements. The NEW Graphic45 chipboard items are perfect for this technique!
I hope you are inspired to scrapbook some of your Christmas photos, vintage or current!
