Sweet Memories Gingerbread layout

Wow today was such an exciting day for me.   I reached 400 followers on my blog today plus my rosette wreath/centerpiece was highlighted in the Cricut Chirp today.  So excited.  
Every since I saw the sketch for the Blog Quick Quotes challenge I knew exactly which paper I wanted to use.  This is Reminisce Sweets and Treats paper I got at my local LSS.  I love gingerbread men and I love the bright colors of this double sided paper.  So here is the page I made using the sketch  below.  
Here is the sketch
I then added a second page for my double page layout.  
Ribbon from Michaels.  Title cut from Winter Frolic. 
 I added gel pen stitching and twine to the title.  
Little gingerbread people were gift toppers I had in my stash.  
Closeup of brads.  I used spoon and cookie sheet from kitchen set and gingerbread man.  
I also cut one extra mat in case I wanted to add another picture on the bottom left.  
I can't wait to add Christmas pictures of granddaughters this year.
