Craftin Desert Diva's "Christmas" Linky Party

Welcome to another Craftin Desert Diva's Linky Party.  The theme for this linky party is to create a Christmas project.  For my project I created a double page 12x12 layout.
I used the Christmas Cheer cartridge for all of the die cuts with the exception of the mat which was cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge.  I cut the mat in half and added it to each of the pages.
A few snowflakes from my stash were tucked in and around the photo mats as an accent.
The Santa's beard was embossed with the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The sentiment on Santa's list is from the Craftin Desert Diva's Holly Day Punnies stamp set.
I added the "ho ho ho" title along the top edge of my layout and tied some Candy Cane Trendy Twine.
I also used the twine to wrap around the reindeer for a whimsical affect.  A bit of Stickles was used on each of the reindeer's noses, of course red for rudolph's nose.
We have some awesome sponsors for this linky party:
