Okay, so haven't finished (or even made a dent in) the monstrous amount of Christmas photos, but I have decided to move on to my 2009 photos. Yay! This layout is one of the few that doesn't utilize a sketch but somehow managed to look strikingly similar to another layout that I had scrap-lifted. Funny how that works. Like Granny says, there are only so many ways to cut a piece of paper so they all start to look alike :o) Oh well, it started out as my idea but ended up just being a memory of anothers.
Either way, I think it turned out pretty cute. Thanks for the title idea Becky, it turned out to be the perfect fit. And I finally used up those adorable little chipboard candles Granny cut out for me using her AccuCut. I painted them up using some Making Memories paint I scored last week from Tuesday Morning really cheap. The word parts of the title are, of course, Quickutz... would you expect much else from me :o) Maddie Anne Classic Lowercase and Abigail Grand.
The pink and green patterened papers are Basic Grey from Michaels and the Cloud paper is from my March 2009 Kraft Girl Kits stash, love it! The really fun part of this layout, is that I actually have 7 photos on this layout! The matts for two photos on the right page are cut double the height and folded (like a card) then I have three photos in the place of one footprint. When I go to put this in my album, I just use an exacto to cut a slit in the page protector and pop it out. You get the idea from this side photo.
