Hi everyone – welcome to this month’s Child’s Play Challenge 1st of the month reveal. This month we teamed with Pixels and Paper to offer a super fun challenge with two chances to win. We had to use both a photo and a recipe (both at the end of this post).
I choose to use photos from our Christmas tree hunt in 2012…they fit the recipe well and the awesome sketch I saw at Creative Scrappers. All of the papers are from older Stampin’ Up lines, as is the red card stock. One tip I have for you…color your photo mats with ink. I love Stampin’ Up’s Cherry Cobbler, but a pack is expensive…especially with the cost of shipping. To make my mats I took white card stock, an ink dauber and used the Cherry Cobbler ink pad. After a few minutes of drying time, just to be certain, they ere ready to go. Perfect solution to keep costs lower.
As I was creating this I kept thinking it was too busy, but when done, and I took a step back I love it. It’s actually one of my favorite layouts I’ve made recently…along with my son’s pre-school one (which can be found here).
Thank you all for reading, and I hope you’ll play along. Until next time…Keep Scrapping!

bling – the gold stars and red bling as tree toppers
Photo – the red and green color and the tree on the tin.
Hi all – Thanks for visiting me today as I share a layout I created based on the Week 2 sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy. When I saw the three photos on the sketch I knew it was perfect for these photos from our son’s second Christmas. He was just about a year old and absolutely loved the train table we purchased. He’ll be four next month and still plays with it daily.
My papers are from an older Stampin Up collection, and I unfortunately don’t remember the name. The tag at the top is a very light matching green, but didn’t photograph well from a distance so I did a close up to show the shape.
Thanks for joining me today and until next time…Keep Scrapping!
