Xmas 2002

I have another challenge page for you today. This time I'm combining the March Week 2 Sketch from Let's Get Sketchy with Birthday Stash-a-Thon Challenge #7 from Scrap Our Stash, which is to use sequins or enamel dots on a page.

I don't have any enamel dots (yet) as I think they are quite expensive and you can get a similar effect from gems or tiny brads. Hopefully the price will drop as more and more companies start making them. Thus I was left with sequins, which led me to a Christmas page with an old photo of my husband and our niece.

The red background paper is from a Christmas collection, but the rest are from a 6x6 pad from a Valentine/love collection. The two stitched circles gave me a good place for the sequins.
