BBTB2 Christmas in July

Today is a double post day for Design Teams for me.  
The first post is for FCCB and the second for BBTB2.  
I hope you will check them both out today and leave comments.  

Today at BBTB2 our designer Jayne has challenged us to design a project for "Christmas in July".  
I was so inspired by the wonderful projects that the BBTB2 designers and entrants made for the "Window to you World" challenge that I decided to use windows on a Christmas layout.  I still had some Graphic 45 paper left from last year and thought it would be perfect for this.  
I cut the window from the Christmas cartridge cutting the window at 4.5 x 5 using my Gypsy.  
The red shape to accentuate the windows came from Elegant Edges page 33 cut at 4.5 x 5.5. 
I had a few leftover chipboard pieces and also some other embellishments that had a vintage feel.  
Here are closeups of the pages and the windows.  
I used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo for distressing, a EK Success corner punch for the mats, and twine.  
The snow on the window sills was made with a Pearl Pen.  
I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired by my layout.  Remember you have two weeks to create a Christmas project and link it up here at BBTB2.  You also have one more week for the "Fashion" Challenge that started last week.
