Twas The Night Before Christmas! 25 Days of Christmas Crafting Showcase.

Welcome to Day 22 of the 25 Days of Christmas Crafting Showcase. Can you believe that there are only 3 more days until Christmas!  Today we were asked to make a project with a Christmas theme. I decided to make a 12X12 layout with a picture of my three granddaughters taken on Christmas Eve 2009.
The tree is a cutting file from Paper Crafting World, which was given to me to use in todays project. I used to make miniature Dollhouses and I had this set of miniature lights in my crafting supplies and decided to see if I could light up my Christmas tree. The pictures really do not do it justice, it looks so much better up on my mantel.
I used George and Basic Shapes to cut my circle at 10 inches.
The Noel, Santa and Twas The Night Before Christmas sign are all chip Board piece from my stash.
Papers are from We R Memory Keepers White Christmas
Sown Flurry, Holly Jolly and Santa's Helpers

I followed the sketch from this weeks challenge over at Stuck on U Sketches
so of course I will be entering this layout into their challenge.
Here is a picture of my layout in the dark all lite up.
Before I sign off for today I would like to take this time to wish all my followers a very safe and Happy Holiday. I hope Santa is good to you and that you get to spend some very special time with your families and loved ones.
Merry Christmas!
To All
