Gifts



Continuing on with Christmas layouts of us opening gifts I made this one of my hubby and I opening some of our gifts.      I usually have to hand off the camera to someone to get a picture of myself during the festivities because I am the one taking all the pictures.    Luckily my husband took this one for me.  Ok so I did hand him the camera to use.   But it worked.

Week #1 sketch at  "LET'S GET SKETCHY"  was perfect for two pictures of the two of us.     I loved this background holly paper but wasn't sure what to use with it, but I had all these different plaid scraps and started laying it out and it worked.     Plus one tiny strip of music paper I had left from the layout I made before this one and I was set.     And I had 2 gift box embellishments left to use.

As I said above its always hard to find pictures of me to scrap, but since I do have one of me at Christmas and since I love Christmas layouts this is the one I want to use for the challenge #25
at "CHALLENGE YOURSELF"   It's an Anything Goes Challenge, just of course have to be sure and feature a picture of yourself.    I might not be the only in this layout but I worked to get my picture taken so that counts to me.   LOL

Check out all the details hers at 'CHALLENGE YOURSELF"

Here is the sketch below and you can check out all the details here at  "LET'S GET SKETCHY"
