A Christmas page

I haven't bought any Basic Grey papers for quite a while but when I saw the Curio collection,I really liked it.
So last night I set to and made  a layout of one of our Christmas photos. This is one taken when himelf's family were here.The reindeer was an old Anna Griffin embellishment I had. I stamped the Christmas tree on to grungepaper and stickled it,and the flowery rosette is a Studio Calico one.I used some Tim Holtz tape and punched some gold butterflies-oh and the butterfly garland was from an Etsy shop..sorry about the poor photo but the light is rubbish this morning!
The papers have such a nice combination of colours-there seems to be a bit of everything in them, lace,flowers,damask,lots!
Have a good day everyone.

This is so pretty, Denise. I'm always drawn to Basic Grey papers myself - love the weight and texture of them too.

Super cute strand of butterflies in the corner!!! xo
