Layout to Share


I just remembered that there was a layout I did earlier this month that I never got a chance to share. May have a little something to do with going into labour on the 3rd. The layout was for the current challenge over at Zeus & Zoe where the challenge is Shine and Sparkle. Here is the challenge criteria:

For this month's challenge I have made it very simple. I would like to see a Christmas project with at least 3 elements that sparkle and shine… they can be 3 of the same type of elements or 3 different elements as long as you have at least 3 sparkle and shine elements on your creation.

This could be anything metallic and shiny… think recycled jewellery, gold or silver buttons, charms, foil paper metallic inks or embossing powders just to name a few... or sparkle and bling elements like glitter and rhinestones.
Easy, hey? So I could not help playing along. Here is my layout:
 My sparkly items are the glittery my minds eye paper and die cuts, some randomly placed rhinestones and even the sparkly and shiny balls in the photo of our christmas tree.

Materials: My minds eye paper & die cuts; Manor house creations flowers; Adorn it alphas; Other - flowers, circular die cuts.
At least that is the first of my holiday layouts scrapped for the year. Although I am at least getting into my December daily. I'm a few days behind but have been taking notes so I don't forget what we did on what day. Mostly it is all about Lily though lol
To make sure I hadn't already done a post on this layout, I had to go back through my last couple of blog posts and I came across the post on the 2nd of December. It made me laugh because at the time I was quite uncomfortable and what I now know for sure was pre-labour and I was watching videos on youtube of heavily pregnant women dancing to bring on labour. What makes that amusing is that I did spend about 40 minutes that afternoon playing Just Dance on wii... you know... just in case! And I did go into actual labour within 8 hours... just like the video suggested! haha Maybe a coincidence but amusing to think dancing may have been the thing to get miss Lily locked and loaded for arrival!
