Seven months later and I'm finally making time to scrap my Christmas photos. Christmas in July! It feels a bit strange to pull out the snowflake vellum when it's 100 degrees outside, but it's also fun to work with colors and embellishments that I haven't used since scrapping the previous Christmas.
I absolutely love the Christmas list that Trevor made, complete with adorable invented spellings. I wanted that to be the focus of the layout. It felt strange not to add any journaling besides a translation, as I almost always tell a whole story on my pages. But in this case, I think it works just like this.
I used a sketch by Shannon White. As you can see, I both rotated and flipped the sketch. I loved working with the strips of paper... and all of them are scraps!
Happy Christmas in July!

Very cool. It reminds me of a "word" one you did for the way Trevor used to say things. I'm thinking of doing one of my nephew's words.ReplyDelete
Happy Christmas in July to you too! I have been thinking of pulling out some older kits too and working on Christmas. Your layout is so cute. The little strips are awesome!ReplyDelete
Very Cute! I thought Trevor liked SPRINKLES, not spinkles. Love, MomReplyDelete
