Christmas Clowns

Well I hope that Christmas was awesome however you celebrate it :)
Today I would like to share a page with you featuring photos from our family Christmas. With 3 teen plus boys in the family (as well as three younger kids) we can always ensure lots of clowning around and fun!

Out of the hundred or so photos that I took over the holiday I picked out these three which really show my goofy sons personalities! Most of my paper is from October Afternoon's last years Xmas collection - Holiday Style (which i love).
Now for the Purple Pumpkin goodness, check out the baker's twine heart and the cute buttons:
The bakers twine heart is really easy to make and very effective. I punched out a heart shape from cardstock, covered the surface with dimensional magic, then wound the PP bakers twine around the perimeter of the heart gradually moving inwards until it was entirely covered. Here is a close up of the finished embellishment. You can use this tecnique with any simple shape.

The snowflake flare button is also from PP.
The final touch was the clown themed fabric button to which I anchored my journaling tag. It is just perfect for this page - and so cute!

Well, I'll be back next year and I wish you all the best for a great New Year's celebration

This is a great fun page and as for the boys, I don't think males ever grow up, I have a hubby in his mid 50's and he still acts the fool....
I love the embellies you've used here, they suit your page perfectly.
