Spalding Scrappers ...... Oh Christmas Tree

..... here is the page I mentioned in the previous post - mine is an indoor (artificial !!!) Christmas tree - this is the first time that John decorated his own little tree - I still have it today and all the little wooden shapes, so cute and yes, it still gets decorated nearly ten years later !!  mmm me thinks that this year I'll take another photo and place another page alongside this one.

Looking forward to tomorrow - Bridgette

November Spalding Scrappers Club .............

................ no surprise that a spooky, cute page is needed - using Black and Pumpkin Pie cardstock and an easy peasy decorative edge, a few bats and pumpkins, do you recognise the little fellas? this time with googly eyes and a tag acting as our gravestone.

We need two photographs the largest and could be portrait or landscape is 3 1/2 by 4 1/2 or 9cms x 11.5 cms -

and the smaller photo perhaps works better as landscape and is 2 1/2 by 4 1/2 or 6.5 cms x 11.5 cms

This is a double page layout that we are trying - so photos from the same event would work nicely here.

The second set of double layouts will be featuring snow scenes ie landscapes, ski-ing photos anything with snow - the colour ways will be Night of Navy, Bashful Blue with a hint of a soft purple/soft green perhaps in some of the accents - if we work on similar sizes to the above I'll be back later with my thoughts on layout.

Here are my thoughts ........ remember the same photo size is being used again as above.

and for the second page of the double layout - following the first set of spooky pages for photo sizes

As a standby, if we really work quickly on Saturday!!! not too many biscuits!!! do you have a photo of you or loved one, two or four-legged by a Christmas tree, outside or inside, again a similar size to the larger measurements ie 9 cms x 11.5 cms - and we'll be working with a traditional colourway the reds, greens and golds - intrigued?

I'll be putting this one up tomorrow to give an idea of layout ...............

So looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday - Bridgette
