I had a chance earlier this week to break out my favorite set from Verve's October release - Christmas in the Air. This is such a great set with a variety of images and some fantastic sentiments! Check out these snowflakes - each point is a mini tree - how cool is that?

For my layout, I worked with Jen's new Sketch For You To Try for ths week. It's a fun one, with lots of possibilities - hope you'll give it a try! For inspiration, check out the SFYTT crew:

Jen del Muro, with guest designer Amy White
Amy Rohl
Kelly Lunceford
Leigh O'Brien
Susan Liles

To play, link up your project to Jen's blog and remember to use keyword SFYTT in the online galleries so we can find each other more easily.
