Can you tell it's been a busy season around here. It happens every year; three birthdays, Christmas, church, New Year's Eve and extra dance practices, all add up to a very full few weeks to close out the year.
I scrapped for the first time in 3 weeks the other day, and it felt GREAT!
Simple Stories Claus & Co. collection has so many wonderful patterned papers I didn't want to use any of them up before I had all my photos for the season taken, in order to choose just the right combo of photo and patterned paper.
I took the opportunity with this layout to combine coordinating bits and pieces from past Simple Stories collections to complete my page. The polka dot frame is from the I Am Collection, and the clips are from the Say Cheese II collection.
Because I usually do not scrap Christmas until after the big day, I tend to ration my Christmas collections. Here, I've used the smallest pieces of patterned paper to preserve my stash, as well as a couple of tear strips from the bottom of 2 different pieces to add just a tad more colour to my page.
