Making Sugar Cookies with a Friend

I thought this photo was so pretty that I immediately thought of some pictures from this past Christmas!!! (the little hearts look like the raw cookie dough--and the recipe for the dough I made has some almond extract in it--exquisite)  This is the gorgeous Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. Can you tell that my inspiration came from the photo?  Earlier, I really tried making Christmas papers work with the photos, but I just couldn't help using all of this PINK--especially after seeing the lovely trigger! I even added an American Craft's medallion/rosette to Basic Grey's Big hot pink and formerly green flower and a button to the smaller one.  The papers are American Crafts from the gorgeous Letterbox collection! The tiny letters and words are My Little Shoebox.  By the way, this is my son and his friend making Christmas cookies. I made it using Sketch Inspiration #204.

Paper:  American Crafts, Letter Box
Ribbon:  American Crafts
Flowers:  Basic Grey (loopy), Prima, My Mind's Eye (small crochet)
Buttons: stash
Border and corner punch: Fiskars
Letters and words:  My Little Shoebox
