I'm Back...

...with a post from Christmas past. I did do a layout from this Christmas, which is something that I'm very proud of, actually, but I just didn't get the chance to take a picture of it. So after a long vacation of sleeping late and eating way too many Christmas cookies, here's my layout.

I always loved how the monuments seemed to fade into the sky while the colors of the subjects are so vibrant.
Here's a close-up of the beautiful Basic Grey paper and some of the embellishments. Can you believe that the velvet ribbon was something I got in the Dollar bin at Michael's? It matched the paper perfectly.! And the candy-striped ribbon was from my favorite local scrapbook store which went out of business in 2008. SIGH!

Oh, and about the was created after many attempts with a very limited alphabet. Even with two brand new packages of these epoxy alpha stickers, I still couldn't spell out my first three titles. So, I just kept reworking it until I had one that worked for the limited number of stickers in my supply! I wish all manufacturers would think about commonly used letter when packaging alpha stickers.

If you love those snowflake brads, they are in the Clearance bin at Michael's this week. I paid full price for these but I picked up another package. Just a note, I added the rhinestone to the center.
Ingredients: Wausau Card Stock; Basic Grey Blitzen Collection; Making Memories Holly Berries; K & Company Christmas Cheer Brads; Technique Tuesday Tile; Holiday Cheer Epoxy Alpha Stickers; Imaginisce Warm Memories Rub Ons; Rhinestone Stickers; ColorBox Dark Brown Chalk ink; ribbon from my stash; Fiskars Leave It To Weaver Border Punch.
