What I Wanted!

Hi there!

We got the first major snowstorm of the season last night and today.  We got dumped with 14-16 inches of SNOW!  Yuck!
What's worse is that we HAD to be out there driving in it!!!  Blah!

Today's layout was submitted at White With 1 Challenge Blog for their December color challenge.

Use:  White + Red + Christmas Photo

This is what I created, using a sketch from Stickers N Fun (Nov 2006).
Our son, opening his best Christmas gift!

I realized after completing this layout that it looked kind of "girly!"  I didn't plan it this way, I was just creating and adding things and before I knew it, I had bows on here!  Oh well!
I needed to fill in the extra space above the title... and in playing around with the ribbon, this is what I came up with... and I liked it!

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok
Sheer Swirls Wire Ribbon
Font: Cricut Opposites Attract
Sharpie Marker
I was going to just add a strip of ribbon across the top, but since I already had two sides covered with the ribbon, it was too much.  Instead, I ended up with this bow!
It represents the Christmas present... and all the beautiful ribbons and bows I always add to my gifts!
I simply scrunched it together in the center and added ribbon.
More playing around with ribbon... and I love how this ended up!  The white with red is so sharp-looking!

Isn't this ribbon gorgeous?  A large roll for $1!!  My kind of price!  :)
I hid the wire by tucking it under the cardstock and folded around the edges.

Garland was added and a cute bow.  Another bow... oh well!

Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
