Challenge Yourself - Holiday Layout with Summery Products

Usually challenges that pop up this time of year are to use holiday themed papers for non-holiday projects. Well I don't want to look at my holiday papers anymore. But, I decided to challenge myself in the opposite direction: to use my Summer themed papers for a very Christmas themed layout.

So with that personal challenge in place, here is my Christmas tree with papers from October Afternoon "Midway" collection...

By this time of the crafting season, I get so burnt out of my holiday products that pulling out something totally different was very refreshing! The 'Midway' collection is a carnival themed pack filled with bright colors and bold patterns. I love how it makes my Christmas tree look so happy and bright :)

The canvas frame is from another summery collection, Maggie Holmes' "Flea Market". The enamel dots are from My Mind's Eye "The Sweetest Thing" (another summer collection!). The alpha stickers are from Glitz Design "Wild and Free" collection.

 I think I had a successful personal challenge to use summer papers for a holiday layout! I now challenge you to challenge yourself to the same challenge  ;) This will also be linked up to the Paper Issues gallery because everything about holiday decor makes me happy!

And I don't want to hear "Blue Christmas" by Elvis anymore.
