Another great sketch from The Scrappiest

Liz designed the perfect sketch for your favorite holiday photo, complete with dangling ornaments and white space.

I know, hun? FANTASTIC! I really wanted to use it for some photos of my family decorating the tree, but for some reason this amateur photographer can't take pictures near the tree worth a poop. So, instead, I scrapped a festive picture of my toddler.

Merry & Bright: Doesn't he look merry? And with that red hair and those sparkly blue eyes, he is most definitely bright. Won't smile for the camera for nothing. Stinker.

Supplies: Patterned Paper, Alpha Stickers: Bo Bunny 'Tis the Season; Brads: Basic Grey; Label Stamps: Autumn Leaves; Baker's Twine: Martha Stewart; 1" Circle Punch: Fiskars; Lace Border Punch: Martha Stewart; Brown Fine Tip Pen: Creative Memories.

Ok, let me just go on record here and say my new favorite thing is BIG, BOLD, PAPER PIECED accents. Seriously, after I made those poinsettias, I felt done with the page. I had to make myself add a few other things.

Anyhoo, you still have time to enter the December challenge. Just complete your layout and link it up over at The Scrappiest. Can't wait to see what you create!

And be sure to come back in January. Liz has scored an amazing sponsor. I can't spoil her surprise by telling you, but it is BIG.

Just in case I don't post again this week, Merry Christmas to you and yours from me and mine. Hugs!
