Christmas morning layout

Hi and welcome to my blog. I'm still working on Christmas layouts - I usually get  to about 5 or 6 pages completely finished before I'm distracted by something else ! lol  I'm using the current sketch over at Stuck! blog to start my creative mojo. Here's the sketch ....

Isn't there so many fun features to this sketch??? I had lots of fun creating my page of my kids on Christmas morning.
I used an old dp paper from Stampin' Up! and then added a strip of ornament paper from Echo Park, with a green rickrack trim peeking out. The flip side of the ornament paper featured a bold houndstooth which I used for the photo mat layer and as a strip on the top. Pretty much everything was inked and/or distressed. The base layer has some stencilling, date stamping and some gold embossing. All of the elements are from Fancy pats Designs with the exception of the rosette ( basic Grey) and the sequins ( Craft Medley) .The red banner was made from an old piece that I had lying around. Thanks to  a great sketch, my layout was finished fairly quickly! I even added a bit of hidden  journaling, in a pocket under the photo.
Thanks for visiting my blog today. I hope you enjoyed my layout! Have a wonderful creative day!
