I've almost finished my 2015 album now. The final few pages are planned out in my head at least, and will be down on paper soon. It's a lovely feeling, and this will be the first annual album that I've finished in ages; 2010 and 2011 just need a few pages and 2012 to 2014 are all still works in progress. (Of course, an album is never completely finished, I can always add more stories and photos, but I mean finished in the sense that I have made all the pages that I currently want to make for that album.)
This page will sit opposite the last one I made and, since they cover Christmas Day and Boxing Day, I've used the same background and the leftover paper pieces, as well as many of the same embellishments.
I chose to work with Sketch #299 from Creative Scrappers, though with one less photo. Half way through making the page, I flipped the paper layers from left to right, not for some clever design reason, but because I gutted the silver baubles paper and I cut away a piece from the wrong side!
I've managed to use some older stash on this page - the red paper is from 2006 (though I haven't had it quite that long) and, since I don't scrap with silver very often, I decided to use up the remainder of a pack of eyelet brads here (9 from the original 20).
