Lucia celebration, Papirdesign

Hi, I'm back to share a layout about a typical Swedish tradition celebrating Santa Lucia. 
It is a festival of light taking place on December 13th. We really appreciate the lights so much during the darkest period of the year here in the northern parts of Europe.

Normally I find it hard to scrap this kind of photos, but using the new Christmas papers from Papirdesign (and some of the other beautiful products they make) really helped make a lo that I actually quite like!

I used some Spellbinders and Cheery Lynn dies  and a mask by Prima Marketing. 
I added some glitter to the dots and some other places in the design to make it more festive.

Pop dots behind the cut out elements help add dimension to my page. I love the sweet cherubs and the glittery chipboard stars as well as all the flowers.

I have combined the latest collection with some earlier Christmas papers.

"Mens vi venter" "Munter Melodi" has ready printed banners just for you to cut out. How neat is that!

I hope you like my Lucia page and that I was able to provide a little scrapping-inspiration on the way. Tomorrow we are back to work/school and all the regular chores! 
And hopefully I can sneak in som scrappy-time just for me.
