TuTu Much Fun!!

I am so glad I got to take a little time today and work on the 1.5 sketch challenge for Sketchy Thursdays...and I've really needed some scrap therapy today!  It's been one of those days!!  This was a fun page to put together, because I finally broke out the awesome Christmas Wishes collection from Bella Blvd., that I ordered from Two Peas last month.  So this is my inaugural layout using this fun collection.  How can you make a bad page using such cute papers and embellies??!!  It actually took me a while to get this page finished, because I thought it would be fun to make my own lace cardstock with my Expression.  I just used my Sure Cuts A Lot program to add varying circles together and then welded and cut.  And another great thing about the Christmas Wishes line is that it really complimented the colors in my photo!  I always like to pull colors from my photos to use to choose my papers for a page.  This photo is from Christmas Eve.  My cousin made the girls these adorable matching tutu's and of course I had to make them pose for a picture!

 


I added the cute little outlined stars with the button centers for the Weekend Warm Up #22 challenge at ScrapFIT, which is using Stars on your layout or project.
