Jolly Good Times w/ Allison Davis

This fun, wintry layout is based on a sketch by the talented Allison Davis for her most recent sketch week.  I was so excited that she invited me to guest design and when I saw her sketch, I knew I was going to use the Christmas Delight collection from Little Yellow Bicycle with these photos of my kids playing in the snow.  The cut out snowman alone had me sold on this collection as the perfect embellishment.  Please visit Allison's blog for more inspiration.
The snowman is so darling on his own that I merely dressed him up just a tad with one of the Christmas Delight epoxy stickers and a bit of bling.  The journal strips are from the Christmas Delight cardstock stickers - I just backed them with a little white cardstock, inked the edges and pop-dotted them for some dimension.
The word 'JOLLY' is from the Christmas Delight fabric stickers.  I love the texture!  They definitely add a fun element to the page.  I also added a bit of bling to make them sparkle.   The snowman strip is from one of the patterned papers to continue the theme.
One of my favorite elements in all of the most recent Little Yellow Bicycle collections are the banners.  Isn't this one just gorgeous?  I love how it dresses up the page and expresses a wonderful  sentiment. They even come pre pop-dotted.  How is that for easy???

Thank you so much for stopping by -
