I am participating in a 30 Day LOAD (layout a day) challenge at Let's Scrap! You do not need to use their sketches but I find it easier to use them! There is also no penalty if you don't finish 30 in the month - because we all know life sometimes gets in the way of scrapbooking!!
For my layout today, I used this sketch from 4-2-12. I pick out my pictures first, then search though the library of sketches to see what will work. The best thing is - the sketch is just the starting point!!
The title on the sketch reminded me of a banner. I found these stockings in the Silhouette online store and used them instead. I did not want the red to get lost on my paper (Christmas paper pad from Martha Stewart) so I used the offset tool to create a shadow layer. I added stickles to the top of each stocking and pop-dotted them to my layout.
I used the font Brannboll Fet for my title. I welded the letters together and cut out.
I used the negative piece of my paper (the part you throw away) for a template to glue down my words straight!
I added Ho Ho Ho (from the Silhouette Store) and printed out these 2x2 pics from my cell phone using my Zink hAppy printer.
Side note: The little boy on the left does not have a black eye - it is a spot on my lens I believe! I just noticed it now - need to clean it!!!
Every year we have a wonderful Christmas Party. Santa comes and the children are encouraged to bring extended family! It is my favorite Christmas Party every year!!!
