1st & 2nd Christmas

The last couple of weeks seem to have gotten away from me. Ever since my birthday, I havent found the time to sit & scrap. I am back now & hopefully will be able to do this again week after week.
This layout has been created from the sketch & color combo at Lets Get Sketchy. I also incorporated some scraps in my layout for at About a Boy.

White & Red Cardstock
Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Patterned Paper
Prima North Country Patterned Paper
BoBunny Noteworthy Noel Journal Page
Studio Calico Huey's Chevron Mask
DIY white foam Thickers
Oriental Trading Candy Cane seasonal stickers
Imaginisce Studded Ornament Sticker
American Crafts Flair Badge
Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Chipboard Element No. 1
Red & White Twine 
Heidi Swapp Mint Green Color Shine Iridescent Spritz
Ranger Rich Red Embossing Powder
Adirondack Lettuce Embossing Powder
Stamp-N Stuff Vertigre Embossing Powder
Tim Holtz Barn Door & Picket Fence Distress Markers
EK Success Border Punch 
Ek Success 2" Scallop Punch

The chevron mask is smaller so I had to line it up & spray it 2 times to get the coverage on the cardstock that I got.
I peeled off the backing on the Thickers & added the different glitters to each letter. I poured the glitter over the letters in my glitter tray so I wouldnt make such a mess. It still gets messy. I forgot about that since I havent used my glitter for awhile.
 I cut off a piece of a glue dot & added it to the middle of the bow that I made from the twine. Then added the bow to the ornament.
 I cut my green border  big enough for the red piece to go on top of it & then punched my border. I adhered my red border on top of the green piece & added my embellishements. I wrote the number 16 on the green chipboard piece with my distress marker. Skyler was only 16 days old in the photo on the left.
My 2" scalloped punch was just the right size to punch around the design of Prima's patterned paper. I then adhered the Happy Holidays layered sticker.

Have a Happy Easter for those who celebrate!
Happy Scrappin!
