When Mom came to visit for Thanksgiving and my birthday in 2006, we took a day trip to Fredericksburg. On our way out of town that night we saw this. These trees were just one small part of the lights display on the electric company’s grounds. It was delightful.
I was inspired by the Paper Issues December mood board below. I chose to use these Heidi Swapp Christmas papers because I wanted a page that used a good bit of red, black and white mixed with traditional holiday colors. Plus this background paper with the stars at the top and built-in title was just perfect for my photo. The metal snowflake button is an old one from my stash, and the wood buttons are from American Crafts. The poinsettia and holly vellum stickers are probably a dozen years old, and I’m so happy to have found a way to use them.
Note: I’m also submitting this to the Paper Issues Owl I Want for Christmas link party.
