Christmas Eve! Some layout goodness!!!

Interactive Layout
Nolan is now 4 and truly understands Santa's role this year.  It is a very exciting time for us and there has been lots of baking gearing up for the special plate we're leaving for Santa & his reindeer.  In anticipation of all of the amazing photos I know I'll be taking, I have created a layout with an interactive mini album in the middle of my page.  I used one 12x12 sheet of word/phrases paper from the new 'Very Merry' line (Dec Club Q).  Then I cut out the 4 corner squares to frame photos.  To create the mini album I used a 3x9 piece of paper and scored it at every 3 inches.  I decorated the cover and added a pull tab.  I used a circle plastic frame and wrapped ribbon around it to showcase the date.  I added a little glitter & liquid glass to various parts of the paper to make it pop.

'Holiday Love & Joy' Layout

"Holiday Love & Joy" layout
 I created this double page layout using the contents from the gorgeous Dec Club Q.  Each month I say it's my new fave only to be topped by the next month's kit.  My only additions were a few scraps from the 'Merry Go Round' paper line and some Petaloo flowers.  I love pages that allow for multiple photos :)  I feel like I get more bang for my buck, so to speak.
 love the journaling blocks
that were included :)

Quick Quotes Dec Club Q

Since I first laid my hands on this month's kit I have been completely inspired.  I have created 2 one page layouts, 1 double page layout and I'm working on a card.  These 'Very Merry' papers are goregous.  Stay tuned this month to see my project.
