A family layout
Here is one of my most favorite pages—and I'm sharing it today over at the Flamingo Scraps blog. The vast majority of these products can be purchased at the Flamingo Scraps store, so hop on over there for more details about the products I used and a link to the store.
You may be wondering why my darling husband is in uniform in this picture. He had to work on Christmas Eve, but managed to still swing by the family celebration long enough for a quick bite of food and to pose for our annual family picture in front of his cousin's totally crazy large tree.
I absolutely love the Basic Grey Curio line. LOVE! I cringed when I cut into the paper. It's the kind of paper that I would frame just for the colors and patterns in it. I can always buy more, though, right?!
One of the best things about this page is how great the snowflakes, flourishes and flowers all look together. I wanted to convey the "holiday feel" with the snowflakes and windy-like flourishes, but couldn't resist using the Curio pre-made flowers with a mix of handmade flowers using the Curio papers and brads. Skeptical at first at my thought process on this, I am so happy with the end result.
I also wanted to note that I used Sketch #39 at Sketchabilities. You can see the sketch here if you'd like to use it as well.
Thanks for stopping by to see my page!!
