December Anything Goes Challenge by Elizabeth

Guest Design Team Member Elizabeth submitted this layout for the December Anything Goes Challenge. She said:

The challenge of Anything Goes left me with an awful lot of choice. However, I’ve been working on an album for my grandchildren’s other grandmother, Granny Ann, forever and the pace has been pretty slow. So, I’m taking the opportunity provided by this challenge to complete the album in time for Christmas. I have boxes and boxes of photographs of my grandchildren to get through and this one of my granddaughter, Jennifer, showing her big gap-toothed grin for the camera, is one of my favourites. Jennifer and her three brothers were all Christened on the same day and this photograph was taken during the party that followed. I’ve chosen to use papers from a Kay Miller Designs set called Simple Pleasures because the colours in the floral designs echoed the colours in Jenny's dress perfectly and the ornate heart-shaped shapes together with the little ribbon bow provided just the right embellishment for the layout.

Thanks for looking,

Now it's your turn to take the December Anything Goes Challenge. Just complete your ANYTHING GOES project and email a picture of your project along with a description to
