Christmas Magic

I didn't take very many Christmas photographs last year - time just ran out to do a special photo shoot, we had terrible weather, and Christmas Day was just a blur... But I did take a few photos while we were out in the city one day, when we happened across the Myer Christmas window display in the Queen Street Mall. The theme was The Nutcracker and the Mouse King and the moving puppets were mesmerising. It was difficult to get good photographs through the glare and reflections of the windows, and the crowds of people, but I did manage to snap a few decent ones.

This layout is based on a sketch from Bo Bunny and I've used papers from Bo Bunny 'Gypsy' collection:

My layout is also for:
# Bird is the Word ~ Magic
# Crop Stop ~ Vintage finished
# Scrap Lounge ~ Paper rolling

I distressed and rolled the edges of the papers and I made some rolled paper roses:
