Christmas Scrapbook Page Hybrid

I am excited to have my first scrapbook page of the year done and now quite a few more to go.  But at lease I have stared.  This page was actually inspired by the scrapbook challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs Blog.  As soon as I saw the sketch, I loved it and knew I had to use it.  My only problem is I wish the photo I took would have turned out a little better, but it will do.  The colors did not come out good and I could not get a good image with no blur what so ever.  I took 43 photos.  So this is as good as it gets!

Most of the page was done digitally except the verses, rhinestones, and the photos of the girls.  I decided to put them on after since they were so dark and I am glad I did.  I just love the way the children are waiting for us to say, "time to open your presents now."  We had Christmas with our out of town family two weeks ago and that is when the photos were taken.

Here is a the page digitally before photos, verses and rhinestones were added and you can also see how the photo did not do the colors justice as it printed just like this looks!

Here are the items used to make this page!
Stamp Sets: ODBD Scripture Series 2, ODBD Christmas Verses, SU The Sounding Joy
SU Whisper White Textured Card Stock
SU Rhinestones
From My Digital Studio
Card Stock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo
Designer Paper: Savor the Season & Savor the Season Embellishments

Thanks for looking and hope you all have a wonderful day!  And, don't forget, Christmas is about our Lord and Savior Jesus!
