12 Layouts of Alice - Layout #1

I decided to complete a layout that coincides with each of Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas. The layouts are not Christmas related though, since I'm not much of a Christmasy person. My Christmas colors are always red, black, and silver. lol. The layouts follow the techniques used by Tim in his tags. I will post a photo of each tag, on the corresponding day, then the layout I created. I hope everyone enjoys these.

Here is Tim Holtz's tag for day 1. More information on Tim Holtz, his products, his techniques, or his 12 Tags of Christmas can be found by visiting his website at

Who R U? layout.

The journaling is hidden behind the image of the caterpillar. I always forget to add journaling. I get so carried away with creating the layout that I don't realize it until I run out of space.
