Dear Santa......

OMG.... I've been on a scrapping frenzy here!!..
I've hardly scrapped at all this year...
then of all sudden, like buses, lots of Layouts arrive all at once!!
I've got loads of fabby Christmas memories & pics taken of my 3 boys over the years..and this one of my youngest makes me smile, (taken 10 years ago).

Here he is, fleeing from Santa, pressie in hand, pulling a funny face!!!
Over at
sketch challenge Blog
This is the fabby sketch
for the
December Sketch Challenge
I  turned the sketch on its side to accomodate the photo I chose to scrap...
and here is my take on it...
I've used a mix of HOTP and cosmo cricket papers, handmade flowers, crochet flowers, pins, lace, rik rak, prima bulb trinkets, twine, snowflake embellies, paint and lots of lovely buttons.
Anyway, I suppose I should stop playing with paper and start worrying about the Christmas prep now!!
Hope all is going well with your festive preparations...
Thanks for Peeking!

  3. I think you are scrapping more than me at the moment! Another fab layout Jan and with most young children it's all about the pressies! They get them in their little mitts and it's goodbye Santa! Christmas is another opportunity for us scrappers to get more photo's than we have time to scrap, but when has that ever stopped us?

  4. I have to start scrapping more! Your layout is super cute, so festive!
