Five faves for December - the layouts

Although these photos were all taken in December I didn't want to use Christmas papers for all of them. It was also nice to use non-Christmas papers after having spent a month doing my journal!
I was pleased that these papers had just the right orange in them to go with the flash of orange in the poster. 
As this was a Christmas meal I caved in and used Christmas papers! They and the embellishments were gathere from my stash where they had been sitting for quite a while!
And again, having found some old stash and as it was on my desk, I used it for another Christmas meal photo. 
My final layout I reverted back to 'normal' papers and used some embossing paste through a leaf stencil and then rubbed distress ink over the leaves. Bo is my nickname and what Hugh calls me most of the time. 
And so that is the end of my five faves for 2015. Really looking forward to doing the same again in 2016 especially as I don't intend to do a monthly project life spread this year.

I think you made wonderful paper choices here. December doesn't all have to be about Christmas

They are really lovely layouts and I think the papers are perfect. I still need to get my December layouts done!

Nice shot of you in your beanie - I like the embossed leaves. I like to mix up my December photos with using non-Christmas papers and embellishments,but it is nice to use up some of that stash too.
