Sketch 231-Christmas 2009

Monday, December 6, 2010

Happy December!! I'm so happy to be blogging and scrapping and enjoying my favorite time of the year :) I adore Christmas. It's my absolute favorite season. I get to go overboard and make lots of projects, plan out gifts and think about all of my loved ones.

Hate to admit this, but I still hadn't got around to scrapping all of the photos from last year. There's a page or two left to add to my '09 album. As December is my month for sketches over at Scrapbook Challenges, they're going to help me out with that for the rest of the month.

This week's sketch was a perfect one for a re-cap of Christmas last year's photos.

I played around with the elements of it a bit, instead of patterned paper strips I opted for photo strips. Just a random smattering of photos from last year, all printed in black and white.

I'm loving the look of letterhead and title pages, so the Recipe Box Label stamp set from Papertrey Ink was the perfect touch for my journaling.

And this color scheme is my favorite of the season! The purple from Dear Lizzy's Enchanted line is the absolute perfect shade. Coordinated with a lime green, pink, tealish blue and maroon, it's so lovely :)



  1. LOVE it! the color scheme is so fab- that stitched snowfake brad is perfect in there :)

  2. What a fun layout.
    I haven't scrapped ANY photos from this year. My life is in catch up mode, teehee.
