How Much is Too Much? #176

It's Christmas in JULY!!  It's popular, you see sales, craft fairs and now scrappy site How Much Is Too Much has jumped on board...  Seriously??  Dang.  I don't do well with Christmas layouts.  First my pictures only reflect the chaos that commences every Christmas morn.   Poof done in thirty minutes, can we go back to bed?   So when DT member Fi challenges us with this... I thought crap.  But then after chatting with several participants... guess what?  I'm not the only one who has crappy Christmas pics.  Then I thought of ALL the shots I took to get ONE... A layout was born!
The challenge recipe called for the following to be incorporated into the layout:

2 + photos [at least 2]
1 x Christmas tree image, any size
5 x patterned papers, i.e., Christmas patterns,
5 x metal embellishments, and any other embellishment in increments of 5

The two COLOR shots are my pictures... After MUCH editing and photo-shopping.  (sigh)
Five patterned papers... four torn and rolled and mounted on the background patterned paper.

Five... I used five "out-takes" in a faux film strip.  I used five "ornaments" with 5 patterened papers from scraps. One contained my 1 Christmas Tree.  4 metal snow flake brads & 1 metal corner mount = 5 metal embellies. And 5 clear acrylic snow flakes.  A touch of journaling and I called it DONE.

Whew....
