just like Brother w/ Kreaxions

 Hello! It's DT Reveal day over at Just Imagine/Kreaxions punches!
The theme for today is Sparkle!!

This will be the last Kreaxions reveal you see from me as I'm stepping down from the dt, but wish my fellow dt members all good things in the future.

This layout is about my 2 sons and how the younger one just really idolizes his older brother. There is a 6 year gap between them and it often creates tension between them. So it's nice to see them playing and getting along together.
I chose the beautiful Season's Greetings line from Moxxie for this page.

I did a lot of layering so I could use the beautiful #312 Snowflake punch a lot and in different ways.
For the darker green layer I used the punch w/o any inserts to get the deep punch with both snowflakes and pretty corner punch. Then I used the punch with the A insert for the cream paper and the punched out snowflakes as embellishment. Going with our theme of sparkle, I've added lots of stickles and pearls for snowflake centers.

I did the same deep punch with the lighter green layer here as I used with the darker green layer but I lined the corner punch outs up so that the bottom piece fell away after going across the paper. I also use the punch on the corners of my photo w/ the C insert.

For this corner piece and under my photos I've created large snowflakes or doilies by punching circles with the punch.

Then I filled in the snowflakes with more stickles for a fun and sparkly layout.
Check out what the rest of the DT has done on the Kreaxions blog.
I hope you all have a fabulous New Year ahead!

Oh Snow

 Hey there!
Today I have a fun layout to show you.
I did this layout to fit some fun challenges out there and it turned out awesome.

This crazy photo of my son was so fun to scrap using the blue challenge from My Scraps and More, it was perfect for the photo and I managed to keep it Christmas-y by using particular elements from a Simple Stories line that was in my stash.

I also used the Mixed Media challenge from Jen Taylor at Birds of a Feather and added lots of misting. You can't see all of it in the photos, but here you can see the blue and white dylusions. I added a clear shimmer as well that is a fun element to see in person, but not very photographic (at least not with my photo skills).

This wood veneer has Silent Night on it but was very difficult to see, so I turned it over and added stickers for my date.

My title was actually supplied by my husband (I know, right?!). This has been the running joke in the family lately. It definitely made me laugh when he suggested it and it fit the photo perfectly.
My entire layout was based on a fun sketch from Scrapbook Circle and the Dec challenge from Paper Issues.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Life w/ Sketches in Thyme

 Hey there! It's reveal day for me over at Sketches In Thyme.
Right now we are using this fun sketch from Bev Code:

And here is my take on it:

These photos are of my youngest playing in the snow. They are just so cute waddling around out there trying not to fall over because their snow clothes are so big and stiff on them. 
He had so much fun!

I kept to the same basic design of the sketch but made small adjustments to fit my needs.

Using a white pen on the dark purple was a fun way to add a bit of journaling. It makes me think of the snow.

Using different fonts and product in my title was fun and made it much more interesting.
You can play along with this sketch and enter to WIN the awesome prize. Check out Sketches In Thyme.
