Puppies 1st Xmas

And boy, was it a wonderful whirlwind.

If you've been reading this blog for a while you already know I'm a complete nut over my puppy. Well, Christmas was a total calamity. There were puppy toys and treats wrapped in tissue paper and once he figured it all out he was gung ho for it ALL.

So of course all the fuss deserved a scrabooking page.


I have been looking for the perfect way to use that gold polka dot overlay. Frankly, I've been hoarding it for ages. And I thought this page deserved something special. It flips open to reveal-


some more photos of the madness that was out Christmas morning. And a few KP stamps for good measure.

There are lots of bits and pieces in this layout too.


I added some sewing to secure the flap and then put a little chipboard 'December' piece from last year's Echo park holiday collection. I also added the little Basic Grey '25' sticker. The 'noel' badge is from last year's Ormulu holiday collection adn the tab is last year's Basic Grey office tabs.


The teal Thickers and the green October Afternoon sticker both matched perfectly with the Kelly Purkey pattern papers that I used to mat my picture.

We had a wonderful Christmas. Obviously, so did our puppy. I think it's safe to saw Christmas was a success this year.



  1. Gorgeous! I really like the overlay with the photos underneath. I'm always looking to make interactive page ideas. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Great page...and such an adorable puppy! I love the gold dotted vellum with the aqua blue accents.

  3. Ha ha, fun photos! He seemed to enjoy Christmas! I love how you used the overlay, especially with the extra stitching on top. x

  4. Very cool idea. I love how you hid photos under the vellum and then sewed it so you can lift it. wonderful
