I'd like to say this is the last you'll see of Christmas pages, but to be honest, I took a lot of pictures! :) This page does have a few special purposes, though.
It was made with mostly the Scrapbook Circle January kit (I threw in the red Thickers and the snowflakes, but the rest is Scrapbook Circle). The Pink Paislee Cupid line seems to work out really well for Christmas, as well as Valentine's Day!
The prompt over at Scrap That Poetry was Twas the Night Before Christmas... and I just squeaked in! The page is due by 10 a.m. today, so here it is! Just in the nick of time!! (Saint Nick... that is!)
The story behind this page is really cute. A family friend (who is pretty much another uncle or cousin), Kevin, plays Santa every year for the family Christmas Eve party. The older kids have caught on, but there is a whole new batch of younger kids that completely believe that this is the real Santa and that he is making a house call. It was amazing! This is the first year Nate was really, really into it.
And that bottom picture, where Santa is looking Nate right in the eye with a knowing look... yep, he was telling him to be nice to his mom, dad, grandma, papa and not to get any more strikes at school.
And ... It's Thursday!! It's time for your newest Sketchy Thursdays sketch challenge. Here is the latest sketch for you to play along with. The sponsor this week is Meyer Imports. Check out the Sketchy Thursdays challenge site for the details on the yummy prize they have put together for you all to play for! I'll give you a hint... Meyer Imports sells glitter.
So there you have it! A little poetry, a little more Christmas and some sketchy goodness for you! See you all in 2010... Have a great New Year!
