Our Xmas Star - SATW November mood board
My second post in as many months! Life is way to busy right now - looking forward to the long summer break, just to kick back a little and enjoy spending time with my little ones!
With Christmas just around the corner I couldnt resist giving this challenge from Scrap Around the World a go. I love the slightly unconventional Xmas colours and the fresh white background.
The photo that I picked was one taken at last years Xmas dance recital. Natalie likes this photo of her - which is very rare as she usually hates all photos of her dancing. (apparently all she sees are her technique imperfections- sigh!).
Anyway I was given the OK to scrap this one and I jumped at the chance. The papers that I used are from Heidi Swapp's 'Marquee Love' collection. I had the idea of arranging the photo and ephemera along a length of bakers twine - like cards pegged up to display at Xmas.
I had fun stamping and misting my backgraund and piling on the festive bits and pieces from my collection. I took the colours from the mood board.
I completed my page with handwriten journaling and a prominent 'thickers' title.
Have a great week - take time to relax and enjoy just being together with family and friends in this crazy season!
