Anyway, back to the Sketchabilities sketch, this is the latest ...
And here's my take on it ...
I was trying to make the photos look like pictures on the mantel piece. I've used one of the latest paper ranges from Kaisercraft called "Gingerbread Collection" I loved the colours and the patterns on the paper.
The frames around the photos are two different Kaisercraft stamps, I stamped them on to white card stock and then heat embossed silver embossing powder. The candle holder and candles are cut from Cricut card stock using the Cricut "Christmas" cartridge and then sprayed with different Glimmermist sprays.
I'm on a mission to try and include more jouralling in my layouts and on this one the journalling is hidden. I've written it on a little slide that can be pulled out from under the main part of the layout.
The journalling says:
"Christmas 2012 Irene brought a Santa & Mrs Claus outfit Jonno & I to wear, only problem being the Mrs Claus outfit was a very small size 8 which I didn't fit so Jacinta wore it instead. She looked very cute and Jonno did a great job as Santa ... compete with a bottle of Hahn Super Dry left by a kinda little girl."
Well that's all for now, thanks for stopping by,
Until next time,
