It's A December Winter Wonderland

I'm so happy that I got a layout completed!!!  I've been super busy spending most of my time caring for my mom and haven't had much "me" time lately. Hard to believe that I hadn't been in my scrapbook room for almost two weeks. There are a couple of challenges that I wanted to do and my layout fits both! 
First off is Once Upon A Sketch December sketch and theme It's December.  
The first thing that comes to my mind is Christmas, and when I think of Christmas I think of snow.  I thought about when I was little and how much I always wished for a white Christmas.
I am also entering this layout in the White Christmas challenge at Berry71Bleu.  This challenge is hosted by Vicky and you must use a white background as your base.
My daughter took the picture in December 2010.  Love this picture!

I did a lot of masking, inking and embossing on this layout.  Messy but fun!

My journaling tag is hidden beneath my picture

I've added some Purple Pumpkin embellishments including cream doilies
paper doily with musical notes
musical note button
Used up lots of my stash and a new Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page Large Set, Winter Snow that I found in the clearance isle at Michaels on Tuesday for $9.00.  Gotta love a bargain!

Thanks for stopping by!
