Christmas Markets in Germany

2 years ago we spent a month in Germany,
really we stayed that long, so we could
go to the Kris Kringle Marts, and they don't start
until after Thanksgiving.

Christmas Markets were on my bucket list,
and I never imagined that we would have and opportunity
to go to them ever.
So when we were going to be there, it just seemed
smart to stay a few extra days to take in these great markets.

Absolutely amazing!
We had a blast, most large towns had their own markets,
and it is a big deal there, everyone dresses up very warm,
and they spend the day, or the evening  just walking and 
shopping, and the best eating.
The food was to die for.

Here is an evening photo of us at the market
it isn't the best photo, but I just loved the look of it
with Christmas trees behind us, and the way the lights 
pop out.

I loved how the paper made the photo pop.
I used Glitter Red  Cardstock.
I also used one Christmas Texture packet.
I decided that instead of using paper, I would use the 
texture packet to add the fun dimension and texture to the page
layout.  It worked,  Christmas tree is made from a pipe cleaner.
Green mini dew drops, clear dew drops, and metallic red dew drops 
are used on this page.  Glitter Christmas Words 
are also used, Peace.
Other products used on this page are from my scrapbook stash.

This was a fast and easy layout.
All the fun was in the Christmas Texture Packet!
