Home for the Holidays

The hubs and I always do our own little Christmas on Christmas day before heading to see family for the day.  I always enjoy this quiet time just the two of us, sharing the gifts we bought for each other and of course spoil the dog too!

This was a quick and easy sketch to work with.  I love that it allowed me to fit so many pictures on the layout as well as use several different styles of patterned paper!  Instead of following the sketch exactly which called for three vertical pictures side by side, I replaced the far left one with a journalling spot from the collection that was the same size as a 4x6 photo.  Looks great if you ask me!  Plus it saved me from having to do a title ... bonus!

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket ; Cardstock: Bazzills; Embellishments: Chipboard Trees covered in Patterned Paper, Cosmo Cricket Stickers, and Basic Grey Stickers; Sketch: Sketches for Scrapbooking; Tools: EK Success Edge Border Punch.

Spoiled Rotten Again

Chevrons have been a huge trend this year! I remember when they first came out about 2 years ago I thought to myself I wonder if they will catch. Well they did! Not only in scrapbooking but in Fabric, Fashion and Home Decor. I am addicted to them and am even thinking about painting my bedroom wall in a chevron pattern.   When I saw this paper I instantly had to buy it ... come on ... isn't it the cutest!  It is almost as cute as my Sister-In-Laws pup Bella asleep on top of the presents!

I love this little elf!  In fact there aren't many elves that I don't love!  They are just so cute and cheery!  This little guy came in a whole sticker set of Christmas themed items and I will be honest to in saying I bought the while thing for just this guy!
