a holiday layout

today i am sharing a layout i made of the oldest little mann's first christmas! :) i'm entering it in the latest challenge at wee memories - 'holiday madness' as well as the latest challenge at lawnscaping - paper piecing, perhaps my most favorite thing to do!

so i just love the color combination of red, teal and lime green...as you can tell! i paper pieced the snowman and lights (both stamp sets from lawn fawn - making frosty friends and cozy christmas). i also used color pencils to color in the presents from lawn fawn's pa-rum-pa-rum-rum stamp set, the ribbon parts of the presents were then cut and popped up for some dimension! :) naturally.

i do like to make my layouts a little interactive, and this one is no exception. there is a mini album hidden in the large present (by the way, those are snowflakes from the 'frosties' stamp set on that large present!) the ribbon on top of the mini album is the ribbon on the present when it's completely hidden! he he he!

i had to include the mini album because there were so many pictures from that first christmas that i wanted included! but at the same time, i wanted to keep a very clean look. :) mission accomplished.

i used various thickers for the title of the layout - can't craft without thickers either! :)
