It's almost fall, I know, I know ... but I have these last 2 pages of Christmas 2008 that I wanted to share. It was really hard to photograph these ... they are very blingy and the sun isn't co-operating with me today. Storybook mats are my fave and so that's what I used, doing mulitple layers and a little punching. The title is cut from SB as well, using a fraying technique on the UNWRAP lettering to make it look .. well, unwrapped. The packages were cut from JOTS, layered, stickled and pop dotted. Papers are all K and Company. I wanted to do a little "using up" on this layout, so the wreath and poinsettia were from my stash, as well as the title of page 2. Added some rhinestones here and there, did some paper tearing and finally, brought in some beading that I had on hand for home decorating. I really like the look it gives the page although I know it isn't archival safe. That's why we have photo back-up, right? LOL. This was fun to do. Wish you could see how pretty it is IRL. The photos are of my DD and her family. Thanks for looking.
