Good morning fellow scrappers! Today's post was my project for November's Berry71Bleu challenge. November's challenge is currently over, but the December challenge is up & running! So make sure to check it out for a chance to win some crafty goodies!
November's challenge was a vintage themed challenge. The DT had the opportunity to work with papers from our primary sponsor for the month of November which was Riddersholm Designs. I received Christmas themed papers which already had a vintage feel to them--so the papers did most of the work for me! :-) The papers I used were from Riddersholm's 'Christmas Cosy' collection.
I chose a recent photo of my son for this layout. It's a winter themed page & therefore this photo of my son posing with a snowy pine tree behind him worked out just right for this project.
My little guy is growing up right before my eyes. I honestly have issues realizing sometimes how Father Time has turned my little wiggly bundle of joy into this active toddler--a little man in training as I say to myself on most days.
Once again I took inspiration for the design of my page from a sketch by The Nifty Pixel. I haven't officially announced this on my blog yet--but as of October 2015 I've been part of The Nifty Pixel design team! Woo-Hoo!! Am quite happy to have joined this fabulous group of ladies. I'm certainly a big fan of these sketches & it's no secret that I thoroughly enjoy working with them.
I kept the embellishments used on my page simple for the most part. I dug through my stash for items that were more on the Winter theme rather than Christmas while keeping it as masculine as I could without getting too 'girly'. With only men to primarily scrap--I've gotten pretty good at masculine themed projects. :-)
I had these mini bottle brush trees in my stash. I trimmed the bottoms & tucked them behind my cluster of embellishments.
Supplies: Paper - Riddersholm Designs, Embellishments - Recollections, Chipboard - Um Wow Studio, Flairs - Recollections, Flowers - Recollections, The Kreative Korner
