Merging of the Holidays...

On this post anyway. Here are two pages I did last week while I was waiting for my order. I was waiting on the ribbon to add to them so now they are complete! I am officially done with Halloween and I've now moved on to Christmas 2007. Once I finish the swaps I'm working on I'll dive into that fabulous new Christmas scrappin' Kit and finish off the year!! I always have a ton of pictures from our pumpkin carving night and I always struggle with how to make them work on a single page layout (I know, I should just spread them out and do 2 pages, but by the time I am at this point in my album I am busting at the seams so I try to condense when I can). I found a similar layout in my Scraps Ect. magazine and made it work for my pictures. The title was done with a retired alphabet, newsprint.
This Christmas page is a layout I was actually trying to make work for a contest entry in the new 8 1/2 inch size chipboard album SU is carrying, but there was just something about it that wasn't right. I just didn't feel it was contest material, but it definitely works in my album. I added a few more pictures to my page and made it into a 12x12 layout. The trees are all sparkly. I used the Season of Joy stamp set to accent this page. This page shows our annual Christmas Eve day event-a visit to Holiday Junction at the Cincinnati Museum Center. It is a huge train display and the boys just adore it. There is even a train they can take a ride on. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend! I'll have swap cards to share soon since that is my project for this weekend. Hugs,
