Family Fun ~ SOUS Dec 23

Happy December 23rd, everybody! Time for one more sketch for 2011 over at Stuck on U Sketches. This time is it another one of my sketches .. kind of a quick one ..  that calls for 3 photos to help you get some holiday snapshots scrapped!

As you can see, I ending up using only one photo because the group I intended to put together just didn't look quite right in the smaller sizes. But oh, well! This is my sweet dd Danielle on Thanksgiving Day opening a few of her gifts. I had been dying to use my new Glitz Beautiful Dreamrer papers and thought they would look great with this photo. Might not match the rest of my T-day pages but .. too bad! The papers used are Polka and Floral.

I've also used a couple of my fave Dusty Attic pieces. Ornate Corner # 11 da0582 and French Flourish Border da0275. They have both been painted with Glimmer Mist Chalkboard, the corner in Cranberry Zing and the border in Sprout. After drying, I adorned them with pearls and flowers.

I wet distressed one corner and tucked a doily behind the folds and added in some more flowers and leaved. Then I was ready to cut my photo mat from A Child's Year. For the journaling tag, I have just used a Creative Memories punch, then inked the edges and added a Websters Pages sparkler as a pull. Some ribbon was tied around the photo for added interest. Lastly, my title is simply an old rub-on.

I hope that you will find time to play along with us this challenge. You will have 2 weeks to upload your project .. so maybe after the holiday you will have some time to scrap! If you ahven't seen what the rest of the design team has done this time, I hope you will make your way over to SOUS!

Thanks for coming by. Wishing you the most wonderful of Christmases!
