Something new . . .
And now it's time for something new. I know this is a Christmas page, but well in scrapbooking sometimes you just have to go with your creative mood. This picture has been kicking around my computer for sometime and I finally decided to give it a whirl. I have a massive Christmas paper and embellishment supply, well, at least huge considering what's available on the Island. This means that I sometimes get tripped up when trying to create a page, since I have so many different styles to choose from. For this one I went with a style I rather enjoy and a color scheme that I love for Christmas. The picture is from my son's first Christmas, when we went out to a tree farm where you choose a tree and they cut it down for you. I loved doing this and this year we got to do it again, so much fun! Anyway, I enjoyed putting this layout together, making the little "Hunt" banner and mashing up a bunch of different supplies from different brands. The only thing that is bugging me is the journaling. I can't stand the look of my own handwriting, and I wish it looked as good as some of the more well known scrapbookers. Oh and yes I do know that it's not straight, sigh, this is sometimes the case when you're left handed, but well it happens. I may tweak it and I'll add the date at a later time but for now it's done and I'm happy!
