The pictures that I chose are several years apart. I meant to add the dates on before I took the photos for the blog, but I forgot. Incorporating photos that show change are some of my favorite photos to document. I will either write the year above each photo, or use tiny number stickers on each one.
To create this layout I used primarily Crate Paper's Falala collection, and the black patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye. The sequins are Shabby Chic Christmas from SpiegelMom Scraps.
I thought that the contrast between these colors was nice and a bit different for me. The black chipboard phrases are from Freckled Fawn and they are quite possibly my favorite embellishment from them of all time.
The white background was a bit plain and I struggled a bit on what I could do to add some interest to the background. I pulled some dies from my stash and cut snowflakes out of vellum, and then glued a sequin in the middle.
This sweet bird is one of my favorite icons in this collection (I'm sure that doesn't surprise anyone), so I had to get her onto this page. It was only fitting that I chose the phrase "my favorite" to go underneath the bird, because she really is my favorite :)
The holiday season is usually a busy one, but if you find that you have time to play along with us this month we'd love to see what you create. Be sure and link your project up to the blog for a chance to win a prize from one of our sponsors.
If you'd like to take a closer peek at how this layout came together, here's a link to my process video. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope that you have a great day!
