I said I jumped around a lot when I'm scrapping.  Today's layout is about Jacob tree hunting and the reindeer at the tree farm.   He really isn't sobbing in that last photo--but running and yelling "Boppa, I found the perfect tree."  He found l-o-t-s of "perfect trees." 


Now, the problem I had with these photos was that many Christmas papers are SO Christmas-y that the colors didn't go with the browns and greys of the reindeer and Jacob's blue jacket looked just obnoxious.  I did find these Basic Grey papers (from their Wassail line)  that color wise seemed to work, but I was still trying to be careful not to overpower the photos with too, too many prints.  I had to use at least a few---duh...


For some reason, I had a bunch of this paper--enough that I must have had at one time, a project in mind.  Haven't a clue anymore, just what said project was... H-m-m-m  That's happened more times than I care to admit.   Anyway,  I cut the trees from one sheet and turned them upside down, added a teeny punched snowflake or so and the baker's twine to make the banners. 


While all the papers are Basic Grey, the decorative fabric brads are from an older K&Co. line, the chipboard alphas are old Heidi Swapp, and the border sticker at the bottom is from just a stray sticker from my stash. I also used my favorite EK border punches the small scallop and the dotted embossed scallop.

Gotta get me some coffee now and get ready for work.  Later all!
