|Supplies: mitten paper & dotted paper from Lawn Fawn; snowflake paper, border sticker, & journaling spot from October Afternoon; alphabet stickers from Imaginisce; rhinestones from Dee's Place; pen from Zig.|
To design the page, I used this sketch from Once Upon A Sketch, where the theme for the month is "It's December..." I substituted the red envelope for the photo (since they're about the same size), and I journaled on the envelope.
I filled in the rest of the journaling/embellishment area with the bits and pieces trimmed from the cards. Here you can see Christmas greetings in English, French, Dutch, German, Polish, Russian, and Hungarian.
The pièce de résistance is this paper star, which one of my friends created from folded tea bag wrappers and a pretty button. She did such a fabulous job on it, I just had to feature it prominently on my page.
Creating an international-themed project seemed especially appropriate this month, to honor OUAS's international team on the occasion of their final challenge. Thanks for all the great memories, OUAS. This is not good bye; I'm sure we'll be seeing each other around the Internet. :)
