The not so Silent Night

Hello there!
This cute layout was so fun to put together.

I love using irony and sarcasm in my daily life and scrapbooking, so titles like this one "The not so Silent Night" make me laugh.
For this layout I used a sketch from Stick it Down, but I turned it on it's side and changed the title area and where I added my journaling.

Here's a closeup of the title and that Special Delivery sticker is perfect for marshmallow wars, right?

At first glance you might think this whole layout is about the cute little boy in his underwear and while my focus was on him and all the fun he was having throwing marshmallows, when you look closely you see a back story.
The story of a teenage girl who decides to target her mother when the camera is up and she won't notice a marshmallow coming straight at here. I thought the naughty and nice stickers attached to the arrow stickers were great for pointing out these details that might have otherwise gone unnoticed.

When adding the washi tape over the polka dot pattern it was a bit difficult to see. To help it stand out I added another layer directly over the top of the first.

I also used this layout for a challenge at Scrap with Us. The challenge was to create a 1 or 2 page layout about a celebration of any kind using 2 or more photos. Join us on the Scrap with Us board and play along with all of the challenges!

Thanks for stopping by!
