Christmas Past Layout – Sketchy Thursdays challenge entry

Sketchy Thursdays posted a sketch challenge for the March GDT. To mix things up, they also added a few other requirements. To enter, the layout had to have either pink and green or red and turquoise, hearts, and a list about something or someone you love.

Well, I’m still working on finishing up Alex’s scrapbook and the themes that were left were one Christmas layout or two Halloween layouts. I couldn’t think of a way to incorporate Halloween with those colors, so I went with the last Christmas page left to scrap in his book. I was really happy with how things just fell into place. The photos are from 2007, and I just got the Coordinations Graphic 45 Core Impressions cardstock with the timepieces after wanting it for so long. I then thought of the title…Christmas Past (I was thinking along the lines of A Christmas Carol), so how fitting that I ended up using g45’s Christmas Past papers too!

Not sure if you can read the list in the photo, but on the banner, it says smart, funny, cute, sweet and loving…one word on each pennant to describe my son Alex. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Graphic 45 Christmas Past cardstock
Core Impressions G45 Timeless Collection
Prima flowers
Heidi Grace Pocket Button
Darice craftwood heart
Webster’s Pages Storytellers alphas
Cosmo Cricket tiny type alphas
Tattered Angels shimmer mist
Ranger distress inks
Ranger alcohol inks (to recolor the button)
Jute

Adhesives:

Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro PermaTac
Scotch Quick Dry adhesive
Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue
American Crafts This to That foam dots
