Tristan & the Christmas Gift

Good morning and Happy President's Day:) I got the night off lat night for the holiday so it was fun to kick back and watch some TV and got to watch the SNL 40th Anniversary show, was so fun to see the old clips :)
 So this layout is from LOAD Day 6: The theme of the day is a topic sentence or subject and reinterpreted it for our scrapbooks. The sentence was: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
Tristan & the Christmas Present trying & trying & trying to open it. Tristan our youngest grandson, just started walking right around Christmas time it was good to see :) Well Pap Santa gave him one of his gifts and took off trying to open it by his self and was so fun to see this unfold. By the 5th picture he was more interested in the paper that in the gift and Mom had to help him open. But the new one year old wanted and did well by himself
I had used the sketch at Let's Scrap but since posting it late I didn't make the link up in time. But it was the perfect sketch to use for the 2 page layout:
 The left hand side has part of the title and 3 of the pictures and journaling
 The right hand side has the rest of the title and 3 more pictures
 The journaling block came from a cut out of a sheet of cutouts. The background paper is one I bought at a yardsale over the summer. The deco tape arrows was in my December kit and the washi tape arrows is in the current kit
  The pattern paper that the pictures are on is from the DCWV Stack 8 and I used the presents that were cut from the same sheet as the journaling block.
 The title was made from various Alphas and daisyd's cardstock sticker sheet. The arrows along the bottom of the washi tape came from a sticker sheet and some cutouts from the jellibean package of cutouts in my kit this month.
 The rest of the title on the right hand page came from alphas in last month's kit, this month's kit and some typed up labels from my brother labeler.
Thanks for stopping by today and have some fun if you can :) You can find me in my little corner of the world....
