Silent Night, Holy Night

Here's my 2-page layout that uses the same elements as the card I last posted. I took these pictures of Makenna during December. Our church had just put up the Christmas tree, and Makenna had on a green plaid dress. I wanted to get her reaction to the tree, which had white lights on it with golden balls. I took these pictures without flash, which gave a much softer glow to the pictures; however, many of them were blurry. I also adjusted the saturation level in Photoshop by lowering it. I think this brings more attention to her facial features. I can't believe how well the tone of the pictures matches with the Designer Paper, Porclain Prints.
Paper: Porclain Prints DP; Apricot Appeal; Groovy Guava; Blue Bayou; Soft Sky; Certainly Celery; white
Ink: basic Brown; whisper white craft ink
Stamps: Baroque Motif; A Beautiful Thing; Alphabet set (non-SU);
Accessories: Punches--scallop, 1/16" hole, 1 3/8"circle, photo corner; hole piercing kit & white gel pen; cameo coral pastels; black brads; pearl brads and tag brad pulls (non SU); ribbon (non SU); white embossing powder; Basic Brown Journaling Pen/Marker
by the way, this layout took a lot out of me...I was changing the blade in my paper trimmer, and I sliced my thumb open! I wrapped it in Toilet Paper until it stopped took a long time and I was afraid of getting it all over everything! instead of stopping or getting a bandaid, I just risked it. it's unbelievable how much i use a thumb until I try to not use it...thank you, God, for opposable thumbs! :)
