1st Santa Visit

My granddaughter Elle had her first visit with Santa yesterday and this was the picture taken  where they went  (Bass Pro Shop).    It looks like she did great, no tears or fear from her.

I made this layout today using the sketch at   "SKETCH N SCRAP"    It is sketch #143.
I let my background paper be my main embellishment and total.    I don't think I have used these many gems on one layout.

Here is the link to  "SKETCH N SCRAP"   and the sketch.

At  "SCRAPPING 4 FUN CHALLENGES"   You can enter up to 3 layouts for their 1st of the month layout challenge and this month the theme is Christmas.     So since I've been busy creating Christmas layouts so far this month this will be the 3rd layout I'm entering there.   Here are the rules & challenge.

Next I will enter this layout at  "STINKIN' INKERS"    Celebrating the Holidays is the challenge going on now.    I called my daughter the other day to double check if they had taken Elle to get her first picture with Santa yet.   No need to worry they had it all scheduled for the next day.    You can't call it Christmas without having a picture with Santa.

Celebrating the holidays

includes Christmas, Hannukah (Channukah) and Kwaanza, 
Chinese New Year, etc.

Create a project that symbolizes the holiday you celebrate at this time of the year.
