Trim the Tree- SOUS reveal

First of all, let me start my post today by wishing everyone a very
Merry Christmas..

Us Finns start celebrating our Christmas on the eve.. Tonight, I will be serving Christmas Eve dinner for my family and this year it includes Ambers new boyfriend Jooa and my moms new boyfriend Janne..
There will be a total of 8 of us at the dinner table, I'm sad that my dad won't be here to celebrate it with us like he was last year.  I'm sure he's happy to be spending Xmas at home with his wife in the warm Florida sun..LOL
So ladies.. Us girls over at SOUS have been busy..Whew!  I was so happy to take a day off from shopping, cleaning and baking to be able to just relax and get those creative juices flowing..LOL
without further-a-do...LOL
Here is my layout for this weeks reveal:
and the sketch for this week:

This was so much fun even though I lost my patients with those pinwheel flowers..LOL
they just wouldn't cooperate, but finally I got them to work..
