Christmas Morning LO for Creative Cutting Challenge

Hi and welcome back to the 1st Creative Cutting Challenge for the New Year. The theme of this challenge is Anything Goes and with getting a huge order of Christmas photos developed I did a 2 page layout of Christmas Morning.
Titled Christmas Morning but I also used the Holiday Headings Set from Creative Pointe
Holiday Headings - Click Image to Close
for the Subtitle to the layout and some accent pieces too. Isn't this just a fun set and they come all in one package of files covers just about all your needs for the Christmas Holiday and you will see more of these files in some up coming Dec Daily pages. You can see an example of the cut file here:
I dressed up the letters with SU Dazzling Details, boy is that chunky (thought it would be like stickles, but it was way more chunky than that)
So this is the Right side of the 2 page layout with my title block and the Creative Pointe file and some of the extra presents cut and scattered about. I used Sketch N Scrap #72 for my layout and I followed one of their designers examples for the other page.

The Left side of the page has a variety of pictures from the morning. A journaling spot in the center that I have to add the journaling to yet.
 The papers and elements came from the kit I pulled together last month for Counterfeit Kit challenge. Stampin Up paper, also bits and pieces from the SU Hello December PL card Collection, the seasonal snapshot PL Accessory Pack (the washi tape came from this pack too)
 The joy and the stars came from Prisma Birthday stickers collection
We start off the day with going through our stocking, having some cookies before we venture out to the living room to open our gifts. Buddy even got a gift from Santa this year (friends of ours sent us this huge box of dog biscuits and toys for Buddy :)

 Off you go and give a try to the challenge we hope you all play along with us:
Rules are simple the project must be new works and  Each project must contain at least one SVG (SCUT, MTC or similar) file die cut and that file must be clearly apparent or you must state what piece of the project is the SVG (or similar electronic) file.  A file name or creator link would be helpful to those viewing your project. NOTE:  A project using only a Cricut Cartridge file is not eligible.  SUBMISSIONS WITHOUT ANY MENTION OF AN ELECTRONIC CUTTING FILE WILL BE DELETED.  Blog owner reserves the right to delete any submission deemed ineligible without notice to entrant.

  3. Oh what a fun layout Tina!!! I love the papers and cuts you used! I really love seeing your pictures too. Christmas morning looks really special for you both and I'm glad to see that. I often think what it will be like when it comes to be just Dwayne and myself. lol That time will be here sooner rather than later! And I wasn't looking forward to it either, but seeing your Christmas day makes me feel better about it. We will just have to make it special for the two of us. I really do love this layout Tina! Bret left yesterday morn to head back up your way. I was teary eyed but he was excited about going back so that made me feel good too. I am just gonna miss the little fart all over again. lol Hugs, Brenda

  12. What a great page, love the doggie present and the Santa hat. We loaded the car and went to ND as the youngest only got Christmas Day off. I found his Santa hat and took that with us for him. It's all about starting new traditions and incorporating old ones.
