DCRU Challenge

Today is challenge day at Die Cuts R Us DT Blog! This week is a fun one! Create a project with a holiday feel! Now I know if you haven't already done this, that you will be soon....so just post it on your blog and add the link at DCRU to join the festivities!

This week I decided on a different type of project. Is it a gift, nope. Is it a card, no again. I decided on a layout of last Christmas: a gift to myself, lol! Kinda selfish, but I enjoy memories!


(Click the Picture for a Close-Up)

This LO is near and dear to my heart just because of the great picture of my Papaw! We got him a fruit basket with a ham. He LOVES to eat better than anyone I know, so he just loved his present.

The second picture is of me (I was going thru a brown hair phase at the time) and my cousin's little girl.

The frames for my photos and stamps are Spellbinder Nestabilities. The Die Cuts R Us Store has a ton of "Nesties" that are perfect backgrounds for pictures. They make creating LO's easy!

I also used Fancy Pants Paper and Chipboard, Cosmo Cricket Ribbon, Stickles, Tim Holtz Distress paint, buttons, Fiskars Scalloped punch, Marvy Punch, and PTI Stamps.

Here's a close-up of my decorations:




Enjoy!!!
