Smolak Santa - Paper Issues

OMG....On this day, we saw two different Santas!  This was the Smolak Santa.  It's a local farm that provides lots of entertainment for all holidays.  This was after we left the breakfast Santa, went home and changed his clothes after he puked everywhere in the car!!  Great memories!  

I played along with the Paper Issues December challenge, Nobody puts Baby in a corner.  I used a FREE cut file, Holiday Geometric Stag and the December Scrapbooking kit.

Joy - Paper Issues

Hey there!  
I have been on a mission to create and catch up with as many Christmas photos that I can. 
 I did not reach that goal.  But, I did get a couple more done.  
Today,  I used the December Scrapbooking kit, Hard Candy Christmas from Paper Issues. The kits are super fun, because you have coordinating things right there at your finger tips and don't have to search your stash.  
I did dig out a few circle punches to my banners.

 Today, I played along with the Take 5 challenge over on the PIFF FB page and I also used the December Swag Bag Kit, Sweet Season.  

Here is the list of choice for the Take 5 Challenge.

For my layout, I chose 6 of the items:

Road Trip - Fancy Pants


Plans of a road trip in your near future?  Not long ago, we went to Philadelphia to see the sights.  There was so much to see, so we took public transportation with a tour to boot! The On Our Way collection was perfect for documenting our journey.  I wanted white space with a corner for journaling.  

You can see that I used a cut file to the right of my photo.  Its a FREE file from Paper Issues.  I used vellum over the clouds and added the title to my layout.  

I love using foam to raise a piece of ephemera for dimension.  I did just that with the suitcase over the 3x4 Brag Card.  I loved the llama.  I had to use him peeking out around the card.  

Hope you will use the On Your Way collection to document your recent road trips.  It has great colors and pieces to help tell your story.
