Christmas in July

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!


  1. Love love love this! I loveeeeeeeeeeeee the paper strips and loving how you added his list! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. Very Cute! I thought Trevor liked SPRINKLES, not spinkles. Love, Mom
