December SOS Book Inspired Challenge Christmas Memories

Oh my goodness!  How did it get to be December already!!  I don't know about you, but I think that 2016 has flown by! Let me take a minute to wish you and your families a very Happy and Healthy Holiday Season, filled with Love, Laughter, and Wonderful Memories!
Speaking of memories, I used the "Christmas theme" and Red and Green colors from this month's SCRAP OUR STASH Book Inspired Challenge, to create my DT Layout, that captures a special Christmas memory!
Believe it or not, I really didn't have many Christmas papers in my stash, but I am happy to say, what I did have worked out well for this challenge.  I used striped paper and enamel dots, for the added challenge items.
Here is my Layout:
This is a photo of my wonderful Mom and Dad on Christmas morning, 2008.  I can't believe this was 8 years ago already!  I love the vintage look of these papers!
Here you can see where I added a pocket behind the photo, using 3D Foam take, to add a jounaling tag.

Here is the tag that is tucked behind the photo - I used a white gel pen, to go along with the chalkboard look of the tag.  (My oldest son named my Mom "Meem" when he was little, and that is what we all call her now.)

Below are some close ups for you
Here you can easily see "striped paper" and the red white and green "enamel dots"

I love these little trees!  I added some bling to them, matted then on cardstock, and used 3D Foam Tape to pop them even more!

Here are some more enamel dots, and I love using washi tape! I added some sparkle to the "Smile" title with a clear Wink of Stella brush too!

Thanks for stopping by!  Again, I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!
