Santa Time

Oh, how I miss the days when my boys still believed in Santa and we took time to visit him each year. It was our tradition to always go on Nathan's birthday. This year I pulled out a very old picture of the boys on Santa's lap for our latest S.W.A.T challenge using a new sketch with the twist of Santa on the page. Here is my take and below you will find the sketch.

This brings back so many memories with Chris and his broken femur. Didn't stop him from sitting on Santa's lap though. I think Santa was a little scared he might break him though. He seemed relieved when David picked him back up and moved him back to his wheelchair. 

The sketch we used for this challenge was a Page Maps sketch. I followed the basics of it, though I didn't use the long piece of patterned paper and I didn't use a banner since there was  already a design in the upper right hand corner. I used a mix of My Mind's Eye and Carta Bella paper and finished it off with some cute enamel dots from MME, a journaling sticker from Basic Grey, and a chipboard piece from Echo Park.

Are you ready to give it a try? Head over to the S.W.A.T. sight and take a peek at the rest of the design team's work and then make sure you create your own and link it up. The prize this month is a pack of the MME that I used for this project. SCORE!

Happy weekend before Christmas.
