Joy to the World Layout - Saturday Sketch - Kaisercraft

Hi everyone,  today sketch #1 has gone live over on the Kasiercraft Blog today - there are some fabulous prizes to win, and a choice of sketches throughout the month to enter with. 
The above layout is my interpretation of the sketch below, using the Kaisercraft - St Nicolas paper collection, which is so full of old world charm, and gorgeous colour hues.  This paper collection was perfect to scrap some of my favourite, vintage images of Christmas.  The Crackle stamp was added around the outer edges, to add a little vintage character.
I adapted the sketch a little, by adding in journaling where elements were in the original sketch... the ribbon with long tendrils instead of a banner, and also 2 larger photographs, instead of 3 smaller ones.
Hope you will consider coming and joining in the fun of the sketch, all you have to do to enter is follow the sketch, and upload to the challenge post in the comments section.
