First Christmas

I absolutely love any pictures of my granddaughter, Meila. Match them with Christmas and I'm all gooey inside! I love them! These pictures made me happy as soon as I saw them. I just had to find the right sketch for them.

To create this layout I used a sketch from Stuck?! Sketches . Since Meila was looking to the right I flipped the sketch. I don't like the subjects to be looking off the page....just a bit of a pet peeve. 

I used do paints to create the open circles around the page. I really liked when the paint splattered on then apace a bit. I also inked the edges of all the paper, and used a white Signo pen to doodle.

I played on the circles all over the page.

The alphas took me awhile to figure out. I knew I wanted two kinds of alphas, but it took me some time to find the right ones. I love the way it turned out!

I hope you enjoy my page. Please let me know your thoughts. Merry Christmas!
