12 Days of Christmas - #6

Yes - I am still hopping around on these! This is the challenge for Day #6. The challenge was to use horizontal photographs only. You will note that I am generally a one photo scrapper (mind you, challenge #8 is to use 8 photos on a layout - not done yet - LOL). Anyway...I usually scrap in a 9x9 size, which is kind of unusual, so if you are looking at my layouts and are trying to figure sizes of things, etc...that might be a good starting point.

This is done using the Apron Strings Designs July 2008 kit. I happen to use the backs of the patterned papers - which all had relatively large patterns. That black ribbon is VELVET and beautiful in person - gives great texture and I love those little plastic-like buttons. The title is done using the QK Aquarius alphabet from I absolutely adore all their new 4x8 alphabets!
As for the photo - those are my two boys on the swing ride at Lake Compounce in Connecticut. My older son, Riker - loved it. Devin, who's 6, only went on the one time and opted to watch Riker as he went on the second time.

As always, thanks for visiting...there's still more coming - there's a lot going on in January - so stay tuned!
