I finally got some scrapping time last night. I had this layout unfinished for over a week. Unfortunately, I had to take a picture inside - I leave for work when it is still dark and we we come back, it is dark again.....
So this is my take on the current OUAS challenge. Use the sketch and the theme was "something new". Well, our Christmas was something new for sure - with our DS having his first Christmas! And this celebration also marked the end of my maternity leave and the start of my old/new job.
I started with the sketch and then got off track. Sometimes layouts just go in a different direction!
Hidden journaling reads: "Our first Christmas with Michi was truly special. First we watched Sarah in the nativity play, then we all celebrated at Ruth's house. What a wonderful family event"
I played with the stitching a bit by adding tiny gold beads. I love the effect!
I mixed the "collectibles" with old brads and the ribbon which was in my December kit from Swirlydoos.
Thanks for stopping by!
All the best,
