Boxx Fortnightly Challenge

Ahh!  It's my turn to set the challenge this fortnight!  So nervous that nobody will have a go!

To start with, i clearly HAD to do something 'Christmassy'.  It didn't feel right not to.  I toyed with the idea of doing a NY Resolution thing but, considering how bad i was at keeping last year's resolution, i ran away from that idea pretty quickly... (my bad!) hehe.

But having nearly finished my DD album, i'm a bit over the whole Christmas colour scheme for the moment.  So....

Here it is:
  1. Show me your favourite Christmas photo,
  2. Tell me, in your journaling, why it's your favourite shot, and
  3. Don't use a Christmas colour palette.
And this was my layout:

and a closer look:

I told you it was my favourite pic... i just had to use it on it's own in a layout. I found that cherry blossom template i've been looking for.... thanks to the fabulous Kathie Link.  I just HAD to have one!!  Thanks Kathie!!  And those butterflies i made ages ago for this layout.  They just seemed to go really well with the colour palette.

Would love for you to all have a go, just head over to the Boxx and have a lookie!

Thanks for stopping by.
