It's been awhile.

 have had quite a few projects to share BUT everytime I try to post, I hit a glitch with Blogger and haven't had time to try to play with it to figure it out but I think the bugs are all gone at this point. EEK. Actually they are not BUT I think I have figured out a way around it.

These 2 new layouts are from the new Cottage Christmas line from Imaginisce. I LOVE LOVE LOVE color on my pages and Imaginisce has added this funky orange color to the mix (I would never have DREAMED I would use orange on a Christmas LO but it really adds a bit of ZING and keeps the line very fresh.

Note the Sticker Glass elements (the trees, gifts, holly). I would normally shy away fom these elements but am really glad I got to try them out. I like the bit of shine and sparkle they add to the page.
Plus you'll notice that I matted them on white cardstock just to give them that little extra definition.

Also, note the beautiful jewelled snowflake on top of the equally decadent flower. Imaganisce usually has a beautiful array of flowers to match most of their paper lines but I can rarely use them without making my 'boy' pages look so fussy. I thought I would give this beautiful snowflake a home on this one. 

This second LO is of my Little Man and DN fooling around with some Santa hats last year.
These out-takes were just cute NOT to use.

Thanks for stopping by. I have a few more projects to share this week!
Have a happy Sunday!

I love these Christmas LO, although I find it difficult to look at Christmas in August! These new lines are a lot of fun and your playful pictures of those boys are a perfect match :O)
