Jingle All The Way Layout

Good afternoon crafters!  I hope everybody is having a fabulous start to 2016!  I know that my last 2 weeks in December were exactly how I wanted them to be--peaceful & quiet!  

Today's post is a page I created for both Berry71Bleu & The Nifty Pixel.  This was my last project for Berry71Bleu.  After being on their DT for 3 years, I've decided to step down.  It's a wonderful DT & I enjoyed my time there & am grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of such a fabulous team! 

This layout features my little guy giving me one of my favorite Christmas themed poses up to date.  He's such a ham & loves to take pictures.  The photographers always have a field day with him since he seems to pose in whichever way they ask him to & holding whatever prop they give him.  I went with the traditional red & green Christmas colors for this page with splashes of gold here & there.

The design of my page is based on a sketch by The Nifty Pixel.  Further down I have a photo showcasing how I've included a digital element from the Berry & Fawn collection by The Nifty Pixel onto my page--in turn creating a 'hybrid' page.

I found these mini spools at my local Michaels during Christmas time & bought them with the idea that they'd make really unique embellishments on a Christmas themed page--and I was right!  I just rolled some twine onto this mini spool & spread the twine randomly across my page to give it a small 3D effect on my layout.

In this photo you can see the red deer which is a digital element that I've printed, cut out & used on my page.  This deer is part of the 'Berry & Fawn' digital collection by The Nifty Pixel.

I've stored my journaling in this scroll which has by far, become my favorite way of storing my journaling onto my pages. You can find a brief tutorial on how I create these scrolls right here.
