Dec 10, 2006 Layout

I was so inspired by the new Pion Design Waiting for Santa 2 papers and the Once Upon A Sketch site I discovered, that I decided to give the current challenge a go.

These are my sons at the age of 1 and 3 sitting on Santa's lap together for the first time. The photo was a perfect match for the paper colors. The journaling behind the largest postcard tag reads:

"You were so nervous to sit on Santa's lap, not only because you were in awe of him... but you were also a little uncertain if you were on his naughty or nice list after the sibling squabble that Saturday morning. Christmas morning was sheer delight to see he had listened to your wishes and you both were on his good list that year"


Here is the wonderful sketch I used.

Thanks for stopping by!
