All But One

After over a month of Christmas crafting, including my Christmas Journal, I thought I might have forgotten how to do a proper 12 x 12 scrapbook page!  Indeed it turns out that the last one I did was way back in October (how bad is that?!)  Turns out that it is a bit like riding a bike, you never really forget ...

This layout came about because I was challenged to do a layout using strips.  I took it to the extreme, and created the whole background paper out of strips of all my different different stripey papers which I sewed together onto an unwanted piece of 12 x 12 paper.  With all that colour going on I didn't feel like it needed an awful lot more so apart from the doily just popped on some stars and left it at that!

Thanks for looking!
