{ Impression Obsession DT challenge - Holiday Family Traditions }

Hello and welcome to another Impression Obsession DT challenge. We have challenges every other week - DETAILS HERE - if you play you could win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

Holiday Family Traditions -- For this challenge I made a layout. We have several traditions and some new ones that I stared once Alex was born. This is a photo of us from last Christmas. One of our traditions is to open one present on Christmas Eve, an ornament. We all get one.   I started a Hallmark Keepsake ornament collection for Alex, starting with his first Christmas in 2008. In this photo he is opening his ornament that he gets to put on the tree. There is a Frosty Fun Decade collection that is starting this year, and I love snowmen.

This layout came together pretty quick once I had an idea. I started with white cardstock and stamped Cover-card Music (CC029) with VersaMark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I punched circles from paper and arranged them on the background. I sprayed the paper with Shimmerz Spritz and Glimmer Mist. After that I stamped Cover-a-card Script (CC050) with brown ink, randomly.

The trees are from Swirl Trees CL196. I just stamped them with green ink and cut out. The little star is from Circle Frames (CL117) and the sentiment that I stamped on green sticker tag is from All Season stamp set (WP222). I added tiny pearls by Kaiser Craft. I used Journaling I stamp set (WP165) for my journaling note that I stamped on white cardstock and cut out. I tucked it behind the photo and it pulls out. I added a star brad and twine.

How is that for no patterned paper? The photo is on a journaling note from Making Memories. I added Jenni Bowlin, Webster's Pages and Making Memories letter stickers. I used plain chipboard frame with a flower from Prima and a little doily to complete the layout.

I hope you'll take the time to visit the other designers' blogs for inspiration! Jenny, Dina, Laura, Julie, Jeanne, Kathy and Deborah.
