Lasting Memories #321 - Best Of 2016

Hello everyone! Good Sunday morning to you! I hope you have had a good weekend so far. We have enjoyed our nice long Thanksgiving break, and now it is just under a month before the Christmas break.

Since it's almost December  we have a brand new theme and set of challenges for you over at Lasting Memories. The theme for December is "Best of 2016". We have gone back through our challenges and have picked the most popular ones to revisit in December.

Our first challenge is Glitter and Glam from our Oscars theme. Break out the glitter and the bling, or whatever you would like, to glam up your layout.

Since I have been in a holiday frame of mind, I have created a Christmas layout. I used Echo Park's "Merry Christmas" collection from a few years ago. Okay, so maybe it's from more than a few years ago - the copyright says 2010! It doesn't seem like it was that long ago!

The colors in this collection are a little darker and more muted than I generally tend to work with, and the colors in the photo were a little on the bright side, so I turned the photo to black and white to remedy the problem!

I used this older sketch from Sketches In Thyme that I found on Dani Cloutier's Close To My Heart Independent Consultant Facebook page.

To glam up my page I sprinkled some gold sequins across the page.

Be sure to stop by the Lasting Memories blog to see the beautiful layouts form the rest of the team. We look forward to seeing what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!
