Happy Holidays Scrapbook Layout with Charlene Byrd

Hello everyone,

Thanks for joining me today! Life is so good when it’s shared with family. Every year my husband and youngest son Remington (who is a 2nd year midget goalie) make a rink in our back yard. Remington loves being out there; he spends so much time shovelling it, maintaining it and flooding it and I just love when everyone comes over to our ‘community rink’ to skate. As soon as we get those little boys on skates we’ll have enough players to actually play a game! Haha!

I simply stained the Victoria Lace Frame and the Intersecting Circles with Walnut Distress Stain.

I was going to add some UTEE to the Happy Holiday words but after I stained them with Walnut Distress Stain I really liked how the wood grain showed through.

For the stars I started by misting them with Heidi Swap Color Shine. It was a bit to shimmering for my liking so I lightly sanded the top of them taking away the sheen. But then I found them too bright so that’s when I decided to add a little bit of glitter with Walnut Distress Stickles. I was really happy with the final look.
That’s what I love about chipboard….keep playing until your happy!

  1. I love this layout! My brother makes a rink in his backyard for his kids too. Great use of the chippies.
