12/19/16 MIM #77

I'm late!
I hate to admit it but I screwed up December's Design Team projects!
I got confused and I did the 2nd sketch for the month first instead of the 1st sketch.
This means I wasn't able to post anything for the reveal on 12/02/16.
Last Monday's post, 12/12/16, was for the second sketch of the month, but since I really love the first one also, and even though the reveal has already happened, I decided to create a layout w/ the sketch anyway!
I'm sharing it w/ you today.
First the sketch:
  MIM #77:
I created my layout w/ a flipped version of the sketch so let me share that w/ you so you have a visual: 
And now here's my layout:
"(Christmas) Faves"
Journaling: "Christmas Favorites:
Song: "Last Christmas" by Wham - Movie: "Elf"
December 2016"
The layout was also heavily inspired by the following December Challenges:

    Love your layout and your favorites...I LOVE Wham! 80's were the best time for could hear the words...not understand the meaning, but they weren't mumbling like today's music! hahaha :D

  3. LOVE your layout! Super cool how you turned what was intended as one vertical photo with a paper strip behind it into a horizontal with a vertical with an accent behind. You have just the right amount of embellishments and it's perfectly balanced. Seriously love this!
