Merry Christmas – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout to share. This week, I decided to go with a Christmas layout of my daughter, Madison. These photos were taken on Christmas two years ago and she was excited to receive so many dolls. Even her brothers got her dolls that year since she’d dropped us all so many hints about what she’d wanted. lol To create my page, I cut apart several of the Creative Embellishments chippies and altered them with gesso, acrylic paint, Distress paint and stains. I was also inspired by the inspiration photo at Scrap Around the World and the Monday Mojo sketch at Flying Unicorn. Here’s what I came up with:
