Lasting Memories - #221

Here Comes Santa Claus
Yep, that's right, we are almost down to single digits on the count down to Christmas..
So this week at the Lasting Memories challenge blog, we would love to see layouts featuring the fun of "Here Comes Santa Claus"
For this layout I chose to feature a special photo of my little man Hunter with Santa just a couple of weeks ago at his Kindy Christmas Art show..
This Santa was fantastic with the children and was doing a "thumbs up" with them for photos.. However Hunter can't quite figure out the "thumbs up" salute very well, but he loves doing "number 1" so Santa had a quick giggle and played along too! This was a very touching moment and I very much appreciated it..

I have used some 6x6 patterned paper for this page, 2 under the photo and one that was full of the present boxes.. I fussy cut them all out and tried my best to strategically place them... :)
The picture of the layout makes the photo seem dark, so I wanted to take a close up and share the beautiful photo properly..
Please remember that even though Lasting Memories release challenges every week, you infact have all month to link up your entries.. So if you get some down time to do some crafting over the Christmas break, then we would love for you to play along!


  1. I really love your layout! I enjoyed your present banner. The fussy cutting was worth it because it really added so much to your layout. Great job!
