HMITM Challenge 184

Life in the Wharton household has been crazy choatic and hectic and it doesn't look to be easing up anytime soon.  So imagine my shock, delight and panic when I open my email on Friday asking if I'd like to GD on How Much Is Too Much.  Of COURSE I want to play along!!!  Hmmm but how am I going to manage??  Simply by putting everything else on the back burner until Monday morning! 
This challenge recipe was FUN and in theory, SIMPLE.
Use ONE holiday photo - This was taken 12.30.09 during a visit home for the holidays
Use 8 patterned papers but none can be holiday specific to my photo- I used patterns by Basic Grey, CratePaper, Bo Bunny, MME, Creative Imaginations, & Teresa Collins.  All of mine were scraps and some were double sided.  For example, on of the BG papers was Figgy Pudding (no no no) but the back side was black and white stripes! 
Incorporate the word Happy - 2" chipboard letters covered in Basic Grey ~ Nook&Pantry
Holiday embellishments - Santa image by Tim Holtz, metal embellishments by Making Memories, altered snowflakes, holly die by QuikCutz.
Other supplies used are: Stickles, Distress Inks by Ranger, Orange Pearl Pen by Viva and misc. ribbon.  My garland was created by punching 1 3/8" circle and folding in half off center.  Then I distressed the edges.  With a white gel pen, I traced an extra circle scallop below my "garland" and then added sparkling Stickles "beads".

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.  Hope you enjoyed!

This layout is fabulous Shaunery! I love the garland and how you used the Tim Holtz stamp (that's one of my favourites). The title looks so great and fits that happy photo perfectly.

Thank you so much for being our guest designer!! Especially with such short notice!
