:LAYOUT: Merry & Bright

Here's a holiday layout for you...

Maybe she's getting a little too old for this, but I still get her a special holiday outfit each year and still always try to commemorate it on a layout.

Since this year's outfit/photo is still a secret (sorry, Grandma Sue &'re just going to have to wait till Christmas), here's the layout from last year.

For a little something different, I used my scalloped trimmer to cut out the center of the red patterned paper to lay over my background paper and create a frame for the page.

The strip of patterned paper across the page grounds the photos as well as gives a place for the decorative chipboard element a place to rest.

I painted the naked chipboard element with brown paint and then sprinkled with chunky glitter to give it a little holiday shimmer.
