Christmas 2007

Here's the layout I did over naptime yesterday/today. I'm so annoyed with myself. The green paper is reversible. I really wanted to do something with circles, so I cut the circles without thinking. Well, the circles didn't work so well then I was screwed with matting. These papers were from a set, I didn't have anything else to match them. Anyhow, I made do, but it's not my favorite layout. It's done though, right? Wink "Christmas" was preprinted, I used white rub on letters for "2007" - started that too close to "Christmas", oh well too late now.

The ornaments, gift, and little tree were cut with the Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge.

I like it! I like the striped paper with the other colors you included, and the pictures are great! I am such a perfectionist, so I know what it's like to be frustrated with things not looking like you planned - you did a great job though!

I think it looks great! I liked how almost everyone is portrayed as opening a gift. That's wonderful! TFS

I like it too but I totally know what you mean about getting frustrated when it isn't what you had planned. I really like those little ornaments you used.

you're so funny Charys!!!! I don't own it, I borrowed it from a neighbor. I need to get it back to her so she can do her Christmas pages. I have one more layout to do then I'm all done for the holidays and I can go back to catching up on June-November pages. Lol

I think it looks cute. I do know what you mean about not being thrilled with the way it turned out, but it's IS done! Lol I have a few of those pages. Most of mine were this year's Christmas pages!

I wish my neighbors owned Cricuts. It would be so nice to have someone to borrow/exchange carts with! Sure would save $$! I am probably the only one in my whole town with one. sigh.

I only printed them because of the challenge this month, believe me, I've NEVER had my Christmas pages done so soon ... it's usually a year or more later. Lol If it makes you feel better, I'm going back to summer layouts this weekend.

Awesome l/o Gwen! It may not be what you had in mind, but it really does look great.

And I'm really beginning to covet those cricut cut outs. Wink You always use them in such fun ways!

Best,
GiGi

Awww, I'm sorry it frustrated you so much. You are right though, it is done. It turned out really nice. I do like that set of papers. The colors and strips are nice. Cute ornaments Smile

I really like all the green accents.

I often times don't mat my photos and I like to use photo corners instead! Biggrin
