My Joy

Hello friends ( if you are still there!) I know its been awhile, but this year has been a huge change around our household! I went back to work this year, after being home for the last 8! To say we have been adjusting is an understatement, and I have spent much of my free time enjoying time with my kiddos and the hubby! I think we have finally figured this whole working mom thing out though, and my hopes are to get back into the swing of things!

Today, I am going to share a layout with you that I made using a favorite Christmas photo from last year, and the Cable Knit kit from Noel Mignon.

I loved this dark woodgrain paper, and how the lighter colors really popped off of it, and brought focus to my photo. 

I really loved the Joy mixed media piece from Jillibean Soup, and thought it was perfect layered over the wood veneer from Elle's Studio! Glad I held onto that one! ;)

Then for just a little extra "oomph", I added in this gorgeous gold cord, wrapped around the photo, it really helps to draw in the eye even more. A few enamel shapes, some gold splatters, and I called it done!

I am linking this up with the current challenge at Paper Issues, figured the perfect place to get back in the swing of things was with one of their issues! They always inspire, so make sure you head over and check it out, and link up if you have anything to share!!
