This layout was up on the Bazzill Basics blog recently with a quick tutorial on how I created that embossed edge on the side of my layout.  I love the colours in this one , it makes that black and white photo pop!

Isn't that We R Memory Keepers Rose die just beautiful!

....and a close up of the embossed pieces on my layout.

Thank you for popping by!

12 days of Christmas

Today I am sharing a non Christmas Christmas  layout that was up on the Heidi Swapp blog this week. I wanted to stay true to the colours in my boys shirts but also make it festive so I combined a little September Skies with a little Believe and I love the effect.
This layout is based on a  favourite photo of my boys I took when we were decorating our home for Christmas!

I added my journaling with my vintage typewriter!

I totally am in love with the large glitter chipboard alphas , they really make a statement.

This fun Christmas layout leads me to this fun event happening now over at  Papercut labs.

There is a beautiful new Christmas themed mood board over at Jot magazine. I hope you get a chance to play along to win a fabulous prize.

I played with the yummy Merry and Bright collection from  Pink Paislee to create my layout.

 I am looking forward to seeing what you create!

It's going to be Merry and Bright!

I am excited to be joining with the  girls on Heidi's team along side the girls from Pink Paislee in their Countdown 2 Christmas event starting on Dec 1. Everyday there is going to be prompts, downloads and inspiration leading up to Christmas on the Pink Paislee blog.

I thought I would start off with a little sneak of my cover of the Merry and Bright album.
Christmas to me is all about Joy for my Boys so I just had to add some Lego to my album cover right!
I asked my husband to design me a Lego reindeer and I then hot glued him to the cover over some silver ribbon!
I punched out the moustache from some of the Merry and Bright paper then added those gorgeous foil numbers to finish.

I love the texture it brings to my album and my boys love it too!

I can't wait to start filling the album now with memories of the Season.
