Christmas 2016




I made this layout following the above sketch from Scrap Our Stash Challenge and all entries are due by January 29 at 11 PM PST so there's still time to join if you'd like. The challenge is to use the letters GOALS or items from your stash that start with those letters. I chose Green patterned paper from Recollections Bright and Jolly 12 x 12 in Paper Pad. O is for Unity Stamp Company  the owl stamp from Owl I Want October 2016 Release. I used Archival Ranger Jet Black Acid Free Ink to stamp the owl. L is for Letters from Basic Occasions Jewel Scrap Pack for "Nolan" my title of the layout. S is for the stickers- wild baby boy- that I used for the journaling from Momenta Baby Boy 105 pc stickers. I used Crayola Colored Pencils and Spectrum Noir Essentials Blending Colored Pencils to color in the owl stamp. The red tag under the banner paper is actually a Holiday Occasions gift tag that I decided to use since it goes along with the colors of my layout.

I decided not to color the owl's face or body since I stamped it on Kraft paper. I used scalloped edged decorative scissors to cut out the stamped image.

Nolan is my cousin's little boy that is also pictured above sitting in the middle of the couch. The pictures were actually taken December 17 at my Grandmama Farrow's house. We were all there for our Christmas get together. TFL!
