My First Christmas

Hi There,

I love Christmas, but I have never scrapped a Christmas page before.  How weird is that?  So I found myself working on the December Challenge for Scrap the Boys.  I had SOOOO much fun.  It took me a good week to do this page.  I worked on little pieces of the page every day.  This is what I came up with:

There are elements of this page which were trademark me, but I found myself totally entranced in the art of this.  A little paint here, a little button there.  This photo of my little man Lucas really inspired me.

For this chipboard title I painted it first.  Then I used Glossy Accents to make the work Christmas shiny.  I used Red Glitter Stickles on the rest.

For something a little different, I journalled around the outside of the embellishments and photo.

The best part of it was the tree. I had a chipboard three cut like that and it was coloured. I wanted to give it a little makeover. I cut up buttons and stuck them on. I was in Helmar Heaven. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.

I think I now just want to cut buttons for everything.  It was extremely therapeutic!!

And where would my page be without a tear???  And a christmas decoration to hang from it!

Thanks for checking out my page!!

Head on over to Scrap the Boys and have a go at the December Challenge!!  Would love to see what you come up with.

Happy Christmas
