Treasured Moments

Hi everyone! Here is a layout that I created using the new Christmas paper collection from Bo Bunny called Christmas Collage, which I bought from TJ's Scrappin with Style. These papers are so much fun and versatile that I decided to work with the papers rather than cover them with mediums and/or embellishments.






Here it is hanging up in the store at TJ's Scrappin with Style.

ScrapFX butterfly frame (large)
FabScraps wordlet
