Dear Santa

I just love this little photo of me and my younger sister Sally.  This was taken in 1957 while we were living in Van, Texas.  I chose this photo obviously due to the paper which was given to me from The Crafty Scrapper to use for the design team.  We were given enough paper to complete three layouts.   These papers are from Bo Bunny Father Christmas and Reminesce.  I cut out the bottom portion and added it to the main paper.  I also cut out the paper behind the photo as well and inked it blue.  I was also given the green / gold ribbon which I added little pearls by Viva Ruby Glitter Liner.  I love the blue/ gold ribbon at the top and felt it only needed a little flower.  I already had this little blue flower with snowmen in the center which is by Prima.  I added the little white flowers which I had in my stash as well.  All the stick pins are by Maya Roads.  I also used by Bo Bunny Father Christmas metal trinket.  I was given the brown clock and snowflake which I added aqua ink to the outside edge.  I was given the little green Christmas tree button which I added it to the center of the clock with thread.  I believe the button is by Maya Roads as well.  I added a trinket to the center of the snowflake.  I was also given this little ruler which I inked the sides and added the little cloth button by Maya Roads.  The papers were so cute that I felt this layout did not need alot of details.

Thank you so much for looking!
