Merry Christmas Layout

Last December, my friend took these wonderful pictures of my boys (plus some of me, my mom, and my daughter) when they were a week away from being 3 and 7 years old.  I just fell in love with the head shots of both boys, but could never find the inspiration to create a layout with them, until now!!

Putting pictures in Polaroid frames is huge right now, so I could not resist playing around with the idea and with the Maya Road frames.  My pictures were not the correct size, so I added a paper border inside and then added their names below.  I also wanted to try out my new circle punch (it made the doilies behind the pictures).  I then added in my own layers and clusters for lots of dimension and fun.  You can also see Heidi Swapp's file folder tucked in the layers!!

Here you can see some twine looped around to make a fun flourish behind the Prima flowers.  I then added in a fun charm, which is all stacked up on top of Fancy Pants chipboard, and Basic Grey 25th and Pine die cuts and paper.


Here you can see some I stamped on the May Road Chipboard  after painting it.   You can see Cosmo Cricket wood stars, Prima lace,  and some of my paint splatters and circle marks I made with Heidi Swapp Mists (here is a link to the tutorial on how I make them).

Supplies can be found at Flamingo Scraps - head on over to see them, lots of great sales to be had!!
