MY ANGELS- TWISTED SKETCH #075 & SCRAPBOOKERS ANONYMOUS NOV. CHALLENGE

it's me again! made this LO using TWISTED SKETCHES SKETCH #075 with the twist of circles (i always love TS sketches!) and this is also for SCRAPBOOKERS ANONYMOUS NOV CHALLENGE using your holiday papers for a non-holiday photo/LO and ofcourse using your old stash. on this LO i used one of my very first patterned papers i bought believe it or not it was one of those huge pack of holiday papers and i don't even know which manufacturer it came from because the cover came off and i can't find it LOL! i love using my old papers though, it's really a lot of fun using this holiday papers, finally using them, and saving so much money LOL!. this photo was taken 4 yrs ago August 2006- my oldest son, Justin (now 11!), and my new born baby then, Joseph (he's now 4!). here is my LO-
i am not going to include the supply list that i used on this one because honestly they are old and i don't have the original packages anymore. i used to open everything i buy and put them in containers. i cut out the flowers from one of the papers and layered them with christmas flowers, place a red brad in the center, and added Ranger black diamond Stickles for bling. i did some zigzag stitching and also stitch the silver circles around the flowers. hope you all enjoy it. thanks again for stopping by.

P.S. i think i'll be adding this to all my post but please don't be annoyed :D
