Christmas in July Challenge

What better way for me to get motivated to catch up the last couple of Christmas layouts I needed to do than with a Christmas in July challenge. :)  Over at Celebrate the Occassion, they have a challenge going right now with the theme of Christmas in July and you cannot use any red.  You can find their challenge here: http://celebratetheoccasion.blogspot.com/.

I made this layout of Kaylee decorating her tree last year and the colors were blue and silver.  The background paper is from the White Elegance paper stack by SEI.  I used blue and silver glitter paper and the Winter Woodlands Cricut Cartridge to cut out the ornaments.  Once they were cut, I embossed them with the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder and went over the embossed lines with stickles.  I also matted the photos with glitter paper to add some extra bling.
