Quick Holiday Page Plus Template/Sketch

As you may know from looking at my work in my gallery, I struggle to create "quick" pages. My usual page takes about two hours, Christmas pages can take me even longer. So, I challenged myself to create a quick holiday page in under thirty minutes. This was quite the challenge for me. I went with a family Christmas photo (you can see Daphne, our Great Dane, is terrified of the camera LOL).  I decided to let the embellishments do most of the action for the page. I love pages that have curves, circles, and waves. Why can't the embellishments do all of that? I created a simple background with one circle attached to a straight piece of paper and matted my photo to that. The rest are embellishments, which makes this page a quick page!! Here is the end result. Most of the embellishments are from Anna Griffin's Holiday Traditions and Calisto Christmas. The swirlie is from Prima.


Here is the sketch I created for the page.
