Jennifer Grace: A Challenge to Embrace the Busy

I managed another challenge!  Whoohoo!  I happened to get sick right in the middle of this lovely event (still don't feel well), so I got more sleeping than scrapping done.  I am glad I pulled all of my Scrappy Christmas Goodness.  It is making it so much easier to work for a few minutes.

I took Jennifer's challenge to embrace the busy literally.  In fact, this page is not doing good things to my headache.  LOL  I'm sure I will love it later.




Love this paper, but it sure it making my head hurt.  LOL  I was afraid my photos would get lost, so I did several layers to frame them out.  I wanted to make my own "string of lights" so I let some twine fall on the page (to give it a more natural look) and the used brads to help keep it in place.  I then added enamel dots and sequins to add a bit of sparkle.  I threw on anything else I thought would work (trees, building, branch, tab and a totally cute flair) and called it a day.  

Whew!

Head over to Jennifer Grace Creates to see what Jennifer made for this challenge!

I think framing the photos like you did really makes them pop. HOpe you feel better.

This looks great Bethany, I love the string of lights you created! And I don't think the photos get lost at all, the layers you used really help, and the background paper is so perfect for the theme that you couldn't not use it! Thanks for joining in! x
