Party at the Pole

 Hello Moxxie fans!
My fellow Muses have shown you lots of fun ideas using this cute line and today I wanted to show you a traditional layout that I made.
  This is my youngest getting into trouble, he's a professional at only 3! Proud mama here. lol The title die-cut was the inspiration for this whole page. I knew I had these photos of my son breaking into the presents early and pulled them out to make this adorable layout.

I wanted to emphasize the torn present here, so I looked for a background paper that would make you think of presents. This Deck the Halls paper with hanging ornaments gave the feel of being under the tree, then I tore some Toy Shoppe and used the B side behind the photos and used scraps of Deck the Halls and Snow Friends to 'pop up' behind the title area and make you think of more presents.
  I wanted a lot of dimension too, so I fussy cut the ornaments from another sheet and stacked them using foam adhesive, then used twine to 'hang' them from the top of the page. To finish them off, I tied little bows and added them to the top of each ornament.

All of the cute die-cuts make it super easy to spruce up your layout with little effort. A little inking, doodling and stickles brings it all to life.

On the tree die-cut I added glossy accents to the lights that weren't red and red stickles over the red ones. I also used the backside of the candy cane die-cut, just for fun. 

   I used a border punch for the bows along the tops of my "presents" and then layered some die-cuts for the title. I think my favorite part is the 'naughty' little elf peeking out behind the title.  I outlined the word 'naughty' and added glossy accents and then crossed out nice. There really isn't a question here.

Thanks so much for coming by! :)Ange
