Traditions

BOXING DAY! Wow Christmas came and went FAST, and now I get a bit to relax today before the next round of company arrives. I made this layout using the sketch from Once Upon a Sketch, lots of Pion papers, Petaloo and Prima flowers and the gorgeous frame is a Dusty Attic chippy. The journaling for OUAS this time is family traditions. I love when I can get together over the holidays with family, it just makes the holidays that much more special. The photo is my grand daughter looking at the Christmas Tree. Such a little cutie pie J



The framing around the photo is all raised with pop ups to give it more dimension. Here you can see some of the stamping that I did and the gorgeous flowers. I did lots of distressing and inking with Distress inks.

The Pion collection comes with lots of little tags and I have cut out a few, inked the edges and added them to my layout.

 Here is a close up of the DA frame. I first painted it white and then I added a few different mists to it and some liquid pearls to finish it off. It has a very old distressed look to it.

Ok well that is it for today. I have very exciting news to share in the New Year. I hope that everyone has a great rest of 2011 and Happy New Year!!!  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
