Let's Scrap 3-7-12

Every Wednesday, Let's Scrap posts a new sketch for you to use.  They also give away great prizes so, if you are not a member hop on over there and join.  Prizes are all random so take advantage of a good thing.  Anyway, here is my 2-page layout based on Wednesday's sketch.
I'm trying to scrap my older pictures as well as keeping current.  This layout called for 9 pictures.  Four of the pictures are 3 x 3, three of them are 4 x 6 and the last two are 4 x 4.5.  The rest of it you just have to figure for the left side, I knew I wanted to have a 1/4" base under my 3 x 3 pictures and 1/4"  between them.  I also wanted some room at the top of my pictures so I cut a green sheet 7 3/8 x 5 1/4 for my title background. And a checked piece 4 1/2 by 6 1/2 for the left picture.  I used Cricut Joys of the Season for the Merry Christmas title and shadow.  I had some Christmas ribbon and border stickers from my stash that I used under the title.  On the right side, I did the same type of calculations and cut the green background for my title at 3 x 6.  I used Cricut Don Juan font and shadow for the numbers.  A little more of my Christmas ribbon and border stickers completed the right title.  I then cut a checked mat 5 1/2 x 6 3/4.  The sketch called for journaling here, but sadly, I couldn't remember my feelings from 1993 so I used Jolee stickers to balance the page.  The papers are from the Provo Craft Christmas Slab III.  It's fun going back and scrapping my older pictures.  I still put out a lot of the same decorations.  But, the garbage pile is for the grandkids....Yea!
