All I Want For Christmas....

Hey yall! I've been scrapping this evening. I just finished this layout. It is for 2 challenges, one on Just Scrappin' and one on Treasured Scrapbooking. The challenge on Just Scrappin' was to scrap something about "all I want for Christmas" and for it to have a layered look. Then the challenge on Treasured Scrapbooking was to scrap about something that brings you joy at Christmas. So I scrapped this layout. All I want for Christmas is to see my family, especially my nephew, Carter. I miss them all so much!!! I used the Cricut Christmas Solutions cart for the Santa. I had been having problems with this Santa, but with some pointers, I think this one turned out okay. I love the old world look he has. I cut the flourishes out with Home Decor. Then I also did something else new. I did the paper folding to make a little pleat. I hope you can tell. I had seen this done several times, and I just love the look. I also added some lace on the layout and some distressing. Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are well! Hugs!

That Santa does look great!!! I love the old world Santa too. You did a great job on the paper folding and as usual I love the way you put things together. This is a very neat lo. Carter is too cute and growing up much too quickly.

I left you some love over at Fiskateers. This LO is so touching. I can't wait to see it IRL. Just gorgeous, my friend.
