Christmas time in Fiji

When I saw this Graphic 45 paper collection at Scotty Craft I knew that it would be perfect to scrap some of the 1000 photos that I took in Fiji last week. The challenge at Once Upon a sketch is to write at least 2 sentences about what you look forward to in December and, ofcourse, use the current sketch for inspiration.
When December arrived this year we were in Fiji. The Warwick resort had been decorated overnight and looked amazing. Sophie and Benji even got to put some baubles on the Xmas tree in the dining room. It was so special welcoming in the Christmas season in such a beautiful place with all of our family. A truly unforgettable time.
I thought that the Graphic 45 background paper looked like a tropical version of holly leaves. I used a mix of Kaisercraft Xmas paper and the Graphic 45 holiday themed papers for this page. The chipboard 'tree' is Scrapware and I thought it looked a little bit 'arty' and matched my tropical theme better than a traditional pine tree would have done :)
