Twinning Together

Christmas is long gone, but I am still reminiscing and scrapbooking those photos. We aren't even going to talk about how I am still working on my Christmas Journal. We'll save that for another day.

Today we will focus on one of my favorite photos from exchanging Christmas gifts with my hubby.
Several months ago we had bought him a pair of Crocs to wear around the house. While these things may not be fashionably attractive, they are super comfortable! I had wanted a pair also, but the store didn't have any in my size. No biggie. I could always get a pair online. Which I never did.

While I may have forgotten about the Crocs I had wanted, my hubby did not. He gifted me with a pair that were exactly like his at Christmas.

The simplest gift like this put a huge smile on my face and I couldn't resist snapping a picture of us wearing our matching Crocs!

For this layout I used  a couple of Crate Paper off cuts I had left in my stash (oh how I love that wood grain paper) along with several papers from Basic Grey's "Dear Heart" collection. I am so sad Basic Grey is leaving the scrapbooking business and I may, or may not, have added one too many papers from this collection into my stash when I heard the news.
I included three embellishment clusters as per my usual design. Each varying in size.
I pulled items from other collections that contained the orange/peach color that I felt coordinated with the Dear Heart papers I chose to use. The chipboard and ephemera pieces came from Crate Paper's Wonder collection. The clear "Sweet Stuff" tab was found in Maggie Holmes' Shine ephemera pack.
The paper flowers are from Martha Stewart.
The sticker doily came from My Mind's Eye "Sweetest Thing" sticker sheet. The Project Life card I used for my journaling was from Amy Tangerine's "Ready Set Go" mini kit. I even used the plastic heart clip (tucked next to a paper flower above) from the Simple Stories "I Am" collection.
This was the first time I had been able to find so many elements from different manufacturer's that would coordinate together effortlessly and I love the final outcome!

  1. Soul mates / sole mates. I see what you did there! cute, and I love the fact that he remembered your desire for a matching pair and gifted them. Kindness, consideration and just remembering something like that is so much.
