Studio J: The Big Event

That's right ... more Studio J today! And this time, I'm entering this week's "Christmas 2012" challenge at Lasting Memories

I come from a large, noisy, holiday loving, funny face, Santa hat wearing family. We celebrate Christmas as a group in mid December allowing each family to do their own thing on the 25th. Just about everyone in the  family considers this the "premier event" of the holiday season. Quoting one of my kids on the way home from the party years ago: "Well Mom, it's all downhill from here."

The first layout was created using a Studio J page pattern and the Pear & Partridge kit. The other layouts are actually collages I created in PicMonkey with a transparent background, saved as a .png and dropped onto Studio J's "No Limits" layout.

I was still able to use the Pear & Partridge kit to create the background papers and add all the embellishments. This is my all-time favorite way to handle a large number of photos when they relate to a single event. My main journaling goes on the first layout with subsequent layouts being photo-focused.

There you have it ...
Another round of Studio J fun at the Tator Patch!
