Iron Monuments

I'm using  Christy's Beautiful Life 30 Days of Sketch's 2 Sketch #4

I started with the Holiday Cheer "Plaid" paper for my background and pulled in a grid paper from Me & My Big ideas.  I stamped and cut my snowflake that I included in my kit, fussy cut them out and placed then at the top and bottom of the photos. My journaling is in the middle between the two pictures.  I cut a tag shape and stamped "the Details", the date and the snowflake. A little bit of twine finishes off the tag.

The journaling is the same on both layouts and reads: Our neighbors were in the process of adopting a puppy and they wanted to find the property lines before the fencing guy came out. John waved Dale down and asked if Doug could find them. John must have spent over an hour outside looking for them. Doug had them found in 30 minutes.

My son's layout was much easier to make for some reason. I cut the paper to 8 1/2x11 then layered the blue grid paper on top. All the banners I cut and drawn around with a gold and black marker.

For my oldest son's layout I switched it up a bit.

I used the snowflake paper as on top (another paper I've had around a while and love) and the snowflake wood veneers as accents. I had a little bit of pompom trim that went well with the olive in the layout so I added that to the bottom of the photo mats. Each mat has  it's own journaling spot.

Great job on these. The stamped and cut out snowflakes are really good. Good use of products to make up embellishments
