Down the Chimney we go!!
 
I have been waiting for the perfect paper to scrapbook this photo! And I finally found it!!
This was several Christmases ago when I took the kids to visit Santa at Disneyland. I really don't remember what Santa said to me at that time but I do remember it was something quite naughty! LOL! Which would explain the look on his face and mine!! LOL!
I hope you enjoy this layout as much as I enjoyed making it!! Ho Ho Ho!!!


I used Kiwi Lane Design Templates: Scallop Border, Madison Avenue and Bracket 3
Also based this layout loosely on a layout in their idea book.
My title is from the Silhouette Store. I used black cardstock misted with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.


Santa was cut with Silhouette from PPBN Designs. Isn't he the cutest? And of course his bag is completed with Rumple Ribbon in Simply Black from LoveBug Creations.


Also used some silk poinsettia flowers, a silver snowflake brad, and Candi (from the Scrapbook Queen's Royal Shoppe).

I am entering this layout in to a few challenges:
Paper Playtime #25 Winter Fun
Craft It Up Linky Party #21
 
 
 
 Up next is Georgiana! Can't wait to see what she has in store!!
 
Here is our complete line up in case you get lost along the way.

  16. Love your layouts - the Santa is so cute. Finished the hop and followed everyone but on Julie's blog, although I tried numerous times to comment, one of 2 things would happen - 1. my internet explorer would stop working or 2. after I clicked publish, nothing would happen. For some reason, my computer thinks there is a problem with the link to her blog - oh well, I tried. Following you with bloglovin'.
