    I used bokeh on two of the photos - from Shutterstock on the larger lower photo and on the water photo from Kristin Agard's New Year 2018 elements (BYOC Dec. 2017). The grandkids had great fun with shaving cream, then jumped into the lake to clean off. Fun to try something new - for them last summer and now for me!

    Great! Challenge!...Eventhough It Took Me Way Too Long! To Complete This Layout!...It Was A Weird! Kinda Day!...Computer Wasn't Cooperating!...PSE Wasn't Cooperating Either!...It Kept Freezing On Me!...Double-UGH!...It Took Me Light-Years Longer To Get This Layout Done!...Just One Problem After Another!...It Was Ridiculous!...I Would Normally Have Just Junked The Layout...& Started Fresh! With Something Else!...But I Had Already Put In A Considerable Amount Of Work!...And I Was Determined To Make It Work!...Finally Got It Completed!...So If You See Any Minor Errors!...Don't Tell Me!...LOL!...I LOVE! Bokeh!...And The Bokeh! Here In This Layout!...Is LARGE! & In Charge!...I Have 2 Different Colored Bokeh Here...Same Bokeh...[Moved Around-Reworked...]...I Recolored Twice...The Original Color Was Gold!...LOL!...I've Created A Few Layouts With Bokeh Before!...The Bokeh Wasn't The Problem Here!...It Was Everything Else!...LOL!...It Was Just One Of Those Days I Guess!...Moving On!...I Still LOVED! This Challenge Very Much!...

    *To Create My Holiday Cheer Layout-I Used:

    *Oh! What Fun-Bundle-Pink Reptile Designs
    *Holly And Jolly Art Dolls-Rebecca McMeen...[I Extracted One Of The Art Doll's Head Pieces & Incorporated It Into My Layout In 4 Different Places & In 2 Completely Different Ways...]
    *Fifteen Collection-DitaB Designs...[Non-Lilypad-Collection-I Used 6 Of The Same Turquoise Poinsettia...]
    *Photoshop Overlays-Wedding Bokeh-#9-Courtesy Of-Fixthephoto.com

    The hardest part of this challenge was choosing a photo... I could imagine so many pretty possibilities!

    I cannot credit the bokeh image I used as I found it in my commercial use stash and there was no designer/photographer name with it.

    Had fun playing with this till I got bored.... My youngest Grand daughter June 2019

    I am wondering why on the "free" bokehs on line came as jpg file s instead of png... Ended up using one of the many I have from NBK...

    Thanks for the challenge! It was perfect to add a little something to one of my fireworks photos for a page in my PL album (maybe I'll eventually finish it!).
