Ringin In The New Year 2012

I made this 2 pg LO for Scrappin-n-Chattin's Vertical Challenge. The title had to be vertical where you have to turn the page sideways to read it, that's why both sides of the title are vertical. The title lettering are Basic Grey Oliver, the New Year's stickers are EK Sucess Jolee's boutique Auld Lang Syne, the Tangelo paper behind the title on both pages is Bazzill Basics Paper (Tangelo), the closer striped page 1 is Basic Grey Ambrosia/Tangy PP, the second page is Recollections Basics Orange Stripes, the journaling backgrounds are Basic Grey Life of the Party from 6x6 pad, the photo mats are RAK as well as the star & heart punches, and the blue swirly stickers are EK Sucess Rainbow.  The journaling on the first page states that "Emily was cross-stitching & I was about to start my December Sketch Challenge LO!" The journaling on page 2 states, "Emily & I made Pumpkin Spice Cookies. We tasted them as they came out of the oven! Yummy!! Mama is laughing at Mr. Ray, because he found out there was cream cheese icing on the cookies. He hates cream cheese! Mr. Ray & Scott are sitting back, relaxing and watching Dick Clark's Rocking Eve special with Ryan Seacrest on TV." TFL!

Thanks! I forgot to include that I used my new Making Memories Tool Kit on the LOs. I tried something new on both LOs. I did the title and photo mats first and then added the pics. I used an Xacto knife to cut away part of the photo mats and cut all the way through the paper. I know not to do to press too hard next time! I was given the tool kit for Christmas and this is my first layout experimenting with it!
