This weeks Page Plans sketch (by Chris this week) was lots of fun. The pictures were from a little snow storm we had over a week ago. I faded the large photo so that it seemed almost transparent. Then I added the two smaller pictures to the side. It came out with a unique look I think.
So here is the sketch.
Here is my layout.
Page Plans is having a New Years' contest some up soon. Be sure to check them out. Next week all the details of the contest will be revealed. It should be lots of fun!
**********I wanted to share a wreath I made this year that was inspired by a visit to Starbucks. I had noticed these wreaths and garland hanging around the Starbucks I go to once in a while. They were basically yarn balls of different sizes and colors and small colored glass ornaments attached to it. I kept looking at it thinking I could make something like that, so I headed to Hobby Lobby. I knew I didn't actually want to make yarn balls because it would waste a lot of yarn and I didn't have a lot of time. So I bought some Styrofoam balls of various sizes along with different red and green yarns. Then I wrapped the yarn around the Styrofoam balls. Then I added some ivory/gold-ish looking glass ball ornaments and one very ornate green glass ornament and was done. I attached the yarns balls and ornaments (with my hot glue gun) to a foam wreath that I wrapped it some pretty Christmas ribbon. It turned out pretty cool and I impressed myself even. It didn't take long to make at all and it was a nice addition to my front door.
Well I hope everyone has a wonderful New Years eve and day this week! We actually get to go out for a little bit. I promised the babysitter we would be back by 10:00. So I am looking forward to celebrating with my friends this year.
