Holiday Spirit 2010
Using the sketch from Two Peas in a Bucket Stretch the Sketch class, I scrapbooked our favorite traditions of this holiday. The biggest change was no gift exchange which my husband and I loved and my Dad hated. Daddy can't seem to see that he is the challenge because he won't give us a clue what he wants. Urgh! Anyway, it lasted for this one blissful Christmas anyway. I'll have another layout later on to capture the most magical part of the day - snow! It is seeming a little less magical these days as we hope the weather forecast doesn't call for more white slippery stuff but on Christmas it was wonderful.
I already had these photos printed or I might have made them a bit smaller with a white border. The background for the title is the most interesting part. I cut flourishes with the Cricut Staight from the Nest cartridge and swirled them down the edge of some vellum. They are cut out of vellum also and embossed with white embossing powder. I did get them turned around literally and embossed the wrong side first and had to do them over. Oh, well, they are extra strong that way!
The border on either side of the journaling is another from KI Memories. I think I feel an addiction coming on.
Thanks for visiting today! Hope you'll come back over the weekend. I"m planning a card making weekend so I hope to have some posts up both Saturday and Sunday.
