Santa

For my last layout for the 2013 52 Week Challenge at Scrappin'-n-Chattin, I wanted to use some photos I took of the dogs this year with a Santa figurine.  The current sketch at Let's Scrap was just the ticket.





I only wanted to use the Santa photos, and I didn't quite have enough to fill all the spots in the sketch.  But the extra spaces worked well for journaling and added embellishments.



Here's a closer look at the first page....


And the 2nd page.  The puppy is almost 4 1/2 months old.  She is starting to listen better and is posing much better.


This was my 3rd year doing the 52 Week Challenge at SnC.  I had to use 2 passes this, which I am a little disappointed with.  It's been a real tough year though, and I am very happy that I was able to complete the challenge.

This page is being entered into a few other challenges as well:
Lasting Memories - Here Comes Santa Claus
Frosted Designs - My Favorite Things

Raindrops on ROSES and whiskers on kittens,
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen MITTENS;
BROWN PAPER  packages tied up with STRINGS;
These are a few of my favorite things.

CREAM-COLORED ponies and crisp APPLE strudels;
Doorbells and sleigh BELLS and schnitzel with noodles;
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their WINGS;
These are a few of my favorite things.
Girls in white dresses with BLUE SATIN sashes;
SNOWFLAKES that stay on my nose and eyelashes;
SILVER-WHITE winters that melt into springs;
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the dog bites,When the bee stings,
When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my FAVORITE things,
And then I don't feel so bad. 
 
 I used String on the 2 buttons (one on each page)
Cream-Colored cardstock was used as photo mats and journaling boxes. 
There are Wings on the bird on the button on the left page (very hard to see I know)
And there are Snowflakes on one of the embellishment squares on the 1st page.


Thank you for stopping by.  This weekend is my last dog event for several months.  I hope to be a crafting fool very soon.
