Oh Christmas Tree.

Material used:
Crate Paper Portrait Collection – Something Blue (Red).
Fancy Pants – Tradition stickers from Crafting Time.
Mulberry tissue -  World Market. Cardstock embellishments; ribbons etc. from stash.

I scrunched up a piece of the tissue paper, smoothed it out a little then spray glued it to the red background paper. 
Spray glued the ribbon & gold net bow before arranging on the page. 
Mounted the close up photo of my 2011 mantelpiece decoration on a piece of green cardstock and placed on the page.
Then added the Oh Christmas Tree, believe, stars & redbird stickers, & cardstock embellies to finish.
A quick and easy page to do.

Santa Claus is coming.......

This was the sketch provided for the SG "Scrap a Sketch" last month.

Since we don't reveal our LO's until the first of the following month I decided to make it a  Christmas themed page.

This one features two of my Santa Clauses which I have collected for many years.
The white one on the left is my Bavarian Santa and probably should be classed as a tree topper, the Santa in the blue costume came home with us after a RV trip around Virginia, USA in 1987.
