Oh I love this idea of a close up shot of favorite story reading! Making it b/w lets it pop away from the reds and greens. You really made this template work well for your style. Love the lil reindeer and how you aligned your title.
Boy does the buffalo print paper ever stand out!! I love all the banners in amongst the layering and the scatter of snowflakes, as well. The trees and little deer peeking out from behind the photo are just adorable. Love the cropping of the photo!!
