Jillibean Soup | Best Day Ever...

Hello Friends!  Today I wanted to share my layout created for Jillibean Soup.  I was totally inspired by our Christmas being celebrated in Summer and wanted to convert it onto a page.  The stitching on the stars and the beach theme really make me happy! *grin*  It is a long way from the traditional red and green theme of Christmas but who's to say we can't change it up every now and then!  :)

 "best.day.ever"

products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Jillibean Soup (Cold Avocado Soup); other - Jillibean Soup: wooden button, stampable frames, flash cards, soup labels, wise words; mist; tools - typewriter, silhouette portrait.



 
Stars are quite universal at Christmas time, don't you think? Stitching over them like this reminds me of those banner/strings that are popular to wrap around gifts.  I've seen quite a bit of fancy gift wrapping over on Pinterest! LOL! Anyway...  I would probably label this type of gift wrapping under "the little things, my little people wouldn't appreciate!" *grin*  After all, at the moment they are only interested in what is on the inside of the package!
 
So, what's inspiring you these days?  Blogs? Pinterest? Christmas? Thanks so much for visiting...x

This is such a wonderful page. I think I could get used to Christmas at the beach. :) I am so very over the snow and most definitely done with the cold. The people in my house wouldn't appreciate that fancy wrapping either. :)

It's a very Aussie Christmas theme though I think. Beach shots, bright summery colours. And the stars, yes the stars are FABulous!!
