Christmas boys

Before the holidays end and I take down the decorations (which will be soon, since there is more tree on floor than on tree), I wanted to share a couple pages I made for Sketch Support this past month.

Both are pages of my boys. I tend to scrap Christmas layouts for the family, not for their albums, but I decided since they love the holidays so much, I should put together a page with their memories from the holiday too.

I didn't worry about journaling. Instead, I selected pictures from the season to represent the month for them. Here's what I did:

It was a two page sketch, but I narrowed it to one since I used fewer photos.

I added stars and stitched glimmer for fun!

Here's Dominic:

I used GCD Studios' Scandia Jul for this page--the bright colors and graphic patterns were perfect for the sketch.

I have trouble stitching with twine, so I drew a line with a ruler and pencil, laid glue down, and stuck the twine down. I did something similar with the bows: I tied them, then glued them down.

Another fun thing: Rather than having the ornaments overlap the photo and papers, I used my circle cutter to cut a slightly larger circle to house them.

Have a great New Year's weekend! I plan on (finally!) editing my Disney photos from 2010 using my Christmas gift, PSE 10 (woot!) and going to a crop on the second at Archiver's with some friends. And hopefully, we'll get snow so my boys can play outside in their boots.
