Next we have another glorious Nutcracker Sweet LO! This one was created by Susan Lui and is just darling! You can see how Susan layered the beautiful papers of Nutcracker Sweet to add lovely depth to this LO. Not only is Nutcracker Sweet a beautiful holiday collection but it is also largely inspired by ballet imagery! If you have fun ballet photos then Nutcracker Sweet is just perfect for creating lovely layouts! Here is what Susan had to say about the inspiration behind this fantastic creation.

"Several years ago, my daughter danced in the Singapore Dance Theatre's production of The Nutcracker. I thought Graphic 45's Nutcracker Sweet papers would be perfect for the photographs of that performance." -Susan Lui
