Merry Christmas

My last layout I made for Patti is another one featuring the ever cute Finn and Teddy wearing their Santa hats. 

This one is entered in Off The Rails Scrapbooking which has a traditional Christmas theme for December. 

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas. My husband and I are off to New York to celebrate it with my eldest son and daughter in law who live there now. Stay safe and warm, or cool, depending in what part of the world you are in.


For my second layout For Patti I have used two more photos of her adorable dogs, Finn and Teddy.  This one is a real labour of love as I hate sewing with a passion but after I had done the stenciling I felt the layout needed a bit more and didn't want to add anymore colour. So this was also a challenge to myself to not 'fill up the page' which I always find hard not to. 

I am entering this in the challenge at Creative Artiste whose December theme is: 
  "Anything Mixed Media Goes" 

Remember Beautiful Moments

I have managed to complete three layouts in December and all in record time as they are a Christmas present for my friend in Minnesota, Patti, who has two beautiful Golden Retrievers, Finn and Teddy. 
This first layout is her beautiful and very photogenic Finn. He has the most beautiful sorrowful eyes. Patti takes the most incredibly beautiful photos of her dogs (she also has a Pomeranian, Lina) and I especially love that as there is plenty of snow in Minnesota that provides a stunning backdrop for these handsome boys.

For my first layout I was inspired by the December mood board at White...with one. I misted some white card stock with some Prima Colour Bloom spray using the chippies to mask the paper as well as using them on the layout. The flowers all started out as white and I have added various shades of green with paints and mica powder as well as snow, glitters and mica flakes.
