There are dozens of Top Ten lists one could make at this time of year but I went with Holiday Traditions. As you may have noticed over the past couple of weeks, I sure do enjoy playing with the Colorful Christmas Collection of papers and coordinating embellishments. I have made a plethora of various projects using it this season, perhaps I SHOULD have done a Top Ten Colorful Christmas project list...lol! Oh well, that will have to be next year, I guess!
I could have made the focus of this layout: activities, baked goods, toys, etc BUT ended up with the Traditions theme too only to see that Amber did a "7 Traditions" on the seventh day of Christmas. Oh well, I hope you can forgive me and appreciate the difference in styles and forgive me for the repeat!
I thought that with the number of photos we take over the holidays it was a good idea to first of all convert everything to Black and White but then to print them in wallet sizes so I could fit multiple pics on this double paged layout! And YES, I did that for YOU too! It is not very often that I do double pagers anymore but I know that many scrapbookers still like to scrap in this manner so I am hoping this will provide you the inspiration needed to get a layout completed with ease:)
I used the papers, die cuts and Glittered Elements from the Colorful Christmas Collection as well as the brads and ribbons. The Glittered Chipboard letters from the Laundry Line complimented this project perfectly so if you are lucky enough to get your hands on some of these, know they will look FABULOUS! I also broke out my sewing machine to add some additional flare.
The embellishments were so much fun that I wanted to make them a major focal point in this project so I attempted to create a mini scene along the bottom of the layout. Lots of pop dots were used to provide additional dimension (because Lumps and Bumps are a GOOD thing!).
With journalling not being my strong point, I was still able to document my Top Ten Traditions by simply getting them down in point form so they will not be forgotten in the years to come. Don't let this seemingly daunting task deter you from getting your most treasured traditions scrapped!
How many photos do you think you'll take on the big day? 100? More? We are family history keepers, you know. *wink* One commenter will receive a Colorful Christmas paper collection, coordinating ribbons and set of glittered chipboard.
We have SO many winners to announce. We will announce the Seventh, Eighth and Ninth Day winners later today when our blog challenge winners are announced!
