He's Making a List - Merry Christmas!

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas!  I hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, fun, and food...and add the fifth "F" - fizzy - if you so choose!

I wanted to share this sweet layout of my son with Santa taken last weekend.  He was chosen one day to bring "Jingles" home from school as reward for his good behavior, and he decided he was going to ask Santa for one!  (Mrs. Claus then went on a crusade to find the make and model of Jingles through his teacher, a local store, and then the Internet to ensure his own Jingles would appear Christmas morning!).  Anyway, we printed out a photo of Jingles and he added a few other things to tell Santa what he wanted, and he got to do a show and tell with him.

Here is my layout using Simple Stories Cozy Christmas and the pretty Tree Trio cut file from Just Nick Studio.

I decided to use the Tree Trio cut file to create a border for the bottom of my layout, and used my Cameo to cut on the bottom of the Ledger side of the Sparkle Flurries/Ledger Cozy Christmas paper.  I trimmed various rectangles from the rest of the collection and adhered to the back of the paper. I stitched around and through the trees for some fun texture. There's just something about stitching that looks so lovely on paper projects!

For the main center area, I put three photos along a piece of the Sparkle Flurries paper.  I love the bokeh effect on that paper!  Real snow flurries are a rarity down here in South Texas.  :)  I also used some of the plaid paper. I stitched along the top and bottom and included my journaling as well.

How cute is that Merry Merry Christmas sticker?  It reminded me of Santa's belt buckle on top of the plaid paper.

For my title, I decided to go with the He's Making a List because of Santa and also because of Paxton's cute list.

My Cameo cut the "He's" and "list", and I used the Simple Stories stickers for the "making a".  I used a red gem for the dot on the "i" cute that it remind's me of Rudolph's nose!

For the top, I kept it simple with a strip of brown paper from the collection, snipped the ends to create a banner.  I stuck 3 heart stickers together and stitched them.  I added the "wonder and magic" sticker and another of the red gems.

Well, that's it for me.  It's a wrap on 2015!  I hope you have a very merry Christmas.  See you all in 2016!  

Chocolate hugs and kisses,
