Happy Memorial Day everyone! Thank you to all those who have served our country!
I am here today to share a layout I completed. A Christmas layout! I know, it is May and it is finally nice outside, but I was finally inspired to scrap these photos, and there is no fighting inspiration! Especially when it is inspiration to scrap a two-pager!
I decided to lay out my photos in the shape of a Christmas tree. Then I decided to create a tree with paper. I cut a piece of green patterned paper in half along the diagonal to make the tree. I made "balls" to hang from the tree with red patterned paper. I used gold washi tape for the "garland" and I folded it to make the tops of the balls. For the title, I used some pre-printed pieces from the "Everyone Loves Christmas" collection by Echo Park. After I had finished adding embellishments, I decided the top needed something more, especially on the right. I ended up creating lines of platinum Stickles to add some sparkle and interest.
I was inspired by the 5/20 Tuesday Trigger challenge at My Scraps and More. The challenge was to have at least 3 of a shape that gets progressively bigger. I used the circles.
