Happy Holidays! from Challenge Yourself "Christmas Morning"

Happy Holidays Everyone!  Can you believe Christmas is just a few weeks away??!!!
In keeping with the Holiday Theme, the Challenge YOUrself Blog's December Challenge is to create a layout with a Holiday Theme - and be sure to include a photo of YOU in it!  This is going to be FUN!  I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Here is my Inspiration Layout for you! Even though it is a photo of my family on Christmas morning, I decided to use a black and white photo, and a non-traditional color pallet.  I hope you like it!
I had the photo printed in 2 different sizes, and couldn't decide which one to use, so in the end - I used them both!
I love my guys and am so very thankful and BLESSED to have such a loving and wonderful family!  
I took a plain wooden "Blessed" title, painted it with teal and pearl paint, and then rubbed some purple stickles over it.  I love how it came out!  Besides the painted wooden title, there is a big mix of embellies in this corner, enamel dots, rhinestones, brads a chipboard star and washi tape too!

I created a "banner" using washi tape that I folded over and cut flag bottoms, and placed tiny enamel dots in between each.

Who would have thought Teal, Purple, White, Black, and Silver would work with a Christmas Layout?!  Sometimes it is fun to reach outside of the "norm" and traditional and create what makes you feel happy!

I wish YOU and your family the HAPPIEST of HOLIDAYS and a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
