gingerbread house

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Can you believe the week is halfway over?  And even crazier than that, can you believe this is my third day of blogging in a row?  ;)  Today I am sharing the last of the layouts I created with the December kit from The Story Matters.  This was a really fun layout to create because I used only one piece of patterned paper on the entire layout (well okay I used a few scraps of green patterned paper here and there but that's it! LOL) AND it's a double pager!  The colors of the Pink Paislee paper reminded me so much of these photos I took of my boys last winter.  It was the first time they really took part in the gingerbread house tradition and they had so much fun placing each piece of candy.  The yellow paper that holds my journaling is actually the reverse of the striped paper and the decorative kraft cardstock borders are included in the kit as well.  Feel free to click on the image for a closer look!


The scallop borders reminded me of the gingerbread wood trim you see on a lot of older Victorian homes so I decided to create my own little "roof" to lay on top of my title work.  I finished it all off with a little baker's twine tied through one of the handmade buttons included in the kit. 


Well that's it for me!  Thank you so much to everyone who has stopped by these last few days and left comments.  Each and every one of them put a smile on my face so thank you!  :)
