Leah says, "This time of year is filled with tons of traditions that we've established as a family. One of the most memorable each year seems to be the events surrounding putting up our tree. The boys may not remember what toys they got for Christmas last year, but they look forward to all the specific things that we do for our 'tree traditions'. We have special treats we share, a speical time we do it each year, fun music to listen to, and lots and lots of fun... For this layout, I loved mixing the brighter green in the glitter paper and tag from the Dear Lizzy Enchanted collection - the bright green with the red just seemed so perfect to me, even though it wasn't from the same line. And the pretty poinsettia paper was easy to layer for a sweet embellishment on the page!"

Here are some great tips from Leah: Sometimes keeping it simple is the best! The bright colors of the glitter background are a fun way to accent the banner and ribbon. What says Christmas better than a little bling? I also have to include that in my time working at my local scrapbook shop I had the opportunity to work with glitter papers from several companies. I always seemed to experience some degree of "shedding" of the glitter from the paper, leaving a bit of a mess. I was pleasantly surprised when I took these out and started working with them! No fuss, no mess!
