Holiday layouts!

Hello! I was pretty excited yesterday when I realized that not only did I have my all of my DT projects done, but I had worked ahead and had some free time to do some layouts just for fun! I think this is the first time since I started my move last April! Between, staging the house, selling the house, spending the summer in California and finally settling into a new house, there hasn't been a lot of extra time! I was actually able to get 2 layouts done! Check them out....

 I started with this Halloween layout of my daughter from last year. I had some of these fun Halloween papers from BoBunny laying around and they were perfect for my witchy photos! The layout was based off this sketch...

I love Karan's sketches! She is so talented! Instead of using the circles behind the photos, I decided to make a giant spider web!

 I found this cute little die cut spider in my supplies but thought he needed a little something so I added some big googly eyes! 

This title cracked me up! If the broom fits....  We will have to see if my daughter finds it funny! I loved the striped paper that I used for the banner and added various colors of ribbon to finish it off! 

Here is some of the stitching detail... so easy to do! 

And then.... I had time for a second layout!! 

Last Christmas my mom bought my daughter and niece jammies for the girls and their American Girl dolls! For this layout, I used some Echo Park Papers and Ashley's sketch at Club CK.... 

I added an extra photo to my layout and used a Christmas tree instead of the circle. Thank you Ashley for the wonderful inspiration! 

I loved these tags! I added some ribbon and brads to dress then up a bit!

The ticket sticker was perfect for adding the year.

I loved this tree from the Echo Park Christmas Pack. I added some SEI dimensional stickers and a cute little snowflake for the tree topper! 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Have a great week!
