CHRISTMAS LOVE for ...
STAMP SOMETHING & PAPERTAKE WEEKLY
This is my third layout with all the photos I took on Christmas Day 2008 and I still have two more to go. I have stamped the fancy squares with my Making Memories set of journaling shapes and the rest of of the title was stamped with various alphabet foam and acrylic stamps. Family is a Creative Memories clear sticker and the 2008 are from my stash of epoxy stickers. And of course all the patterned cardstock are from Basic Grey. I have used the Brackets Template from Doing Life for the arrow shapes. All the various circle, tag and square shapes were created with all my various EK Success punches.
I have decided to enter this layout for the current challenges over at Stamp Something which is Christmas in July Somethings and Papertake Weekly which is My Favourite Things. I have used six of my favourite EK Success punches for this layout. I find that using all these different shape punches are a economical way of creating one's own embellishments.

Thanks again for stopping by and for all your lovely comments. Enjoy the rest of your week.

  19. Pragtige scrapbooking - die agtergrondkleure pas baie goed by die kersfeestema. Hou ook baie van die juwele - vorige pos. Gelukkige bruid! Baie geluk met die toekenning en dankie vir die brokkies insig in jou - het dit so geniet om dit te lees. Sterkte met die dieet! Ek is ook baie lief vir stap, maar het lanklaas met 'n swaar rugsak gestap. Was mal oor die Visrivier - droom nog oor die otter.

  22. Somehow missed this one, sorry! I have a new system in place now on my blog whereby the people who post go to the top of the list but missed this...love your attention to detail on your letters & the lovely shaped journalling blocks - did you print those yourself? Very nice! Looks like you had a very Merry Christmas!
