Santa Baby

I just love this page of my cute little Grandson! I couldn't resist taking his picture when he got to my house!
I did this page for Sketch Along Tuesdays 11-30 Sketch, they also had a Fabulous Friday Blog Hop Which I also was able to enter!  So awesome to be able to enter 2 challenges on the same blog! To be able to enter both challenges I had to do the sketch from Tuesday's challenge and add Glitter for the Fabulous Friday Blog Hop challenge.  I used plenty of glitter all over my page!  The snowflakes  and the base under my title was glitter paper,  snowflake brads were added to the title. I also used glitter glue on the berries on my journal frame, and on the smoke coming out of the chimney, also I just had to use a little on my title! The chimney was embossed and inked using silver ink from the Martha Stewart ink collection. For my own personal challenge of using something from my scrap collection that I've had for years I decided it would be a great time to try the snow flakes I had purchased from a scrap book convention over 5 years ago.  Love how it added extra texture to my page! Did you notice the boots coming out of the chimney?  The paper I used was from DCWV at Home Stack, the cartridges I used were Joys of the Season, Gypsy Wonderings,  A Child's Year, George and Basic Shapes, Christmas, Country Life.  I added a little extra to each snowflakes & chimney with little jewels, also on the snowflakes I used  beads and a silver snowflake, just to make them each even more unique! Hope you joined me in the challenge!  Love to hear what you think of my page! Don't forget to go over to http://frosteddesigns.blogspot.com/ and check out all the exciting challenges they have and the awesome Design team too!
