Christmas Joy ~ Scrapping The Little Things!

Hi paper lovers, happy Monday!  Welcome to My Creative Time's Scrapping the Little Things!  
I hope you enjoyed your weekend, I had a great one!  Went out to dinner with friends and scrapped my very first "Project Life" style layout!  I used a different brand that was available at Michael's to see if I would even like it.  I'm really happy with my first layout.  I had a bit of trouble with it at first...I think I was over thinking it.


We went to Disneyland the week of Thanksgiving with 5 families!  The picture of us on the Tower of Terror has 12 of us in it!  It was a great trip, it's been a while that all four of us have been on vacation together!  
I still need to add some journaling, I think once I do that, my page will come alive!


I cut 3 banners from "Vintage Label Dies" then stamped them with "Have Fun in the Sun" stamp set.

Curled up the banner then added a rhinestone to one side.  After I added the pictures, I attached the banner to the outside of the protector.

 I love that I can still use my cricut for this type of scrapbooking!  I cut two labels and the "joy" with it.  Did some dry embossing on the red background and the "joy"!  Then again added a button with hemp on the outside.  Love it!!!

I think I could get into this type of scrapbooking!  I like that you can also get 12x12 protectors, so you could mix and match traditional and quick and easy together!
