Believe Christmas Santa Layout

Christmas was wonderful this year. It was the first year I didn't have to give the boys money to get me a gift or take them to the store to get it. James actually searched the Internet looking for the perfect gift for me. And bless his heart he found it. About 10 years ago during a move the gravy boat for my wedding china was accidentally broken. And the pattern was discontinued in 1989. So it was not easy to find, but bless his heart he found it!!!!!

Scott was also given a Santa outfit by a friend. He loved it and spent the day playing Santa with the cats and us.  He was the skinniest Santa I have ever seen, but by far the jolliest! It was a wonderful day.

I am finally finished with all of the Christmas gifts, so I was able to get back to scrapping today. And one of my favorite challenge blogs, Lasting Memories had a wonderful sketch perfect for Santa Scott! They are also looking for new Design Team members, so I decided to take a risk and apply.  I have so enjoyed visiting blogs and trying new things, I thought trying out for a design team was a great way to stretch myself as an artist.  If you are interested in applying go here.
