It's time again now for the challenge over at the Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog, and this month I am doing the sketch layout challenge. I actually turned the sketch on its side to do my layout. That's the great thing about sketches - you can use them as a starting point and go from there! I had an extra 3x4 photo of my girls on the day they visited Santa and I had gotten a little gift from a Christmas Tag class I went to which was these beautiful Graphic 45 postcards/journaling cards. I love the colours in them and they worked perfectly for layering.
I cut the Santa Hat with my Cricut Explore and used another Cricut diecut - the holly leaves and berries to layer in the corner. I added some Glossy Accents on to the berries and then sprinkled on some glitter while it was still wet. I cut the prongs off this sweet Christmas tree brad and added it to the center of the snowflake with a foam dot.
I dug through my stash of Christmas papers to find this pretty woodgrain paper that have some silver snowflakes along with the printed colours. I thought it worked perfectly with the Merry Christmas diecut that someone had given me in some Happy Mail!
I was just so happy with the candy cane outfits I found for the girls this year - and of course these were what they had to wear for their special visit!
Here's a look at the layout sketch this month -
Don't forget we also have a card sketch and bible verse to challenge you as well! You have all month to enter - just visit the Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog to enter your project on the January 1st blog post link up.
