Scrapbook layout using Jan 2016 Hip Kit and additional supplies

Good morning. It's Monday and I have a layout to share with you. I used the Jan 2016 Hip Kit and a Stampin' Up balloon punch as well as some Stampin' Up gold thread. I added a ticket from Chuck E Cheeses that was won playing games while at the restaurant that had some purple in it to match the purple in the baby's hat. Take a look at the project and let me know what you think.

Share: Scrapbook page

Hello and welcome to today's post. I know, I know, we're all over Christmas and 2015 but I just finished this layout using up some Christmas papers that just retired and using my favorite photo for 2015. The red background paper was the perfect fit for this layout and the additional papers were picked because of the elements in the paper design. Take a look at my son and his cousin posing for a picture that was just too adorable not to scrap.
