Impressions of ...

Isn't it funny how some of our fave pps do not always begin with a love at first sight impression ?
I'm not a big collector of Christmas themed papers in general
& even when the Webster's Pages Christmas pps arrived into our stores here
I hardly bought up the entire lines .
( I have to say Webster's is definitely one of my top 2 brands for all time ! ;)

That is , until their 12 Days of Christmas crop in Nov last year.
Now I have a great appreciation as to how versatile even their
 Christmas themed papers can be for  pics unrelated to Christmas.

So here's a quick & simple layout I got done using the Webster's Home for the Holidays line .
 using a Liz Qualman sketch too.
I just received my prize for Banner of the Week  win
and am not hoarding this one prize as far as I can help it !
This is my 2nd layout done already & I foresee a few more to come ...
The idea being to use them up before the new WP  CHA Winter lines hit our sunny shores .
Famous last words !

Pics were taken at Tokyo Disney Sea by our olde pals ,
whose family was there for the first time last Nov.

This is fabulous, Pearl! I saw a peek on FB, and had to pop over to get a closer look. LOVE that you're using the Christmas line for non-Christmas photos. Also love the border punch you used on the striped paper and the little Silhouette tucked in, too.

Stunning layout. Websters is also one of my favorite.

I agree - Christmas papers (and other themed papers) can usually eb used for loads if different occasions than what they were created for :) Your page is beautiful - love the subtle shading and sponging...very nice!

This is just fabulous Pearl. Love all the little details you added and way to put that Webster's prize to good use. Just beautiful - I'm a bit jealous...haven't gotten to play with this sketch yet. Maybe this weekend.

Luverly...I am also a huuuuuuuuuuuge WP fan & have seen that the "other side" is often more workeable in some cases than the "front" ;-D
