I started this layout as part of a PhotoFull class by Tami Sanders and finished with this month's challenge as inspiration:

This is a fun sketch from Tami, with so much room to photos and journaling. I love it.

Since my pictures we so dark, I decided to still display them, but in a fun creative way: a Christmas tree, which a decorated with tons of mints-epoxy stickers I had from a Paper Work monthly kit.

My partial collage, I made with stickers from a CTMH kit (long ago retired) and some candy cane stripped alpha stickers from Echo Park sticker page.
I added more epoxy candy canes...

This is my final double page using papers from a Christmas WOTG:
