Santa's Little Helper

As soon as I saw this photo Christmas card from my niece I knew that it would end up as a scrapbook page!  It is a photograph of her son's first Christmas.  I used the frame from the card as a starting point to the layout.
I used Bazzill French Vanilla cardstock as the base and added an oblong piece of Authentique Wonder collection patterned paper called 'Anticipation' (reverse side).  I then added a strip of Authentique 'Curiosity' patterned paper (used the reverse side) along the right hand side of the layout towards the bottom of the oblong piece.  I cut a circle from the 'Curiosity' patterned paper and adhered this on top.

As the photograph was already in a 'frame' from the Christmas card, I attached this on top of the patterned papers.  The chipboard sentiments are from FabScraps and the title is made from American Crafts Thickers called Jewelry Box.

A quick and easy layout to make to ease myself back into scrapbooking.  I feel I haven't done much scrapping for ages!  If you leave a comment on this post (and you qualify- please see rules so you don't miss out), I will enter your name into the blog candy draw for the lovely Martha Stewart punch around the page set.

Good luck in the draw - see you back here tomorrow.


  1. Its a lovely page Ann, I really love these papers im glad I bought a few more they look fab and I honestly think they look just as good for non xmassy layouts too. And French Vanilla as you know is my absolute favourite i love it , i must get more from you as i dont like to run out. Im hoping to get some scrapping done tonight with Pauline and then Shelagh is coming tomorrow hope my mojo is still around , its not easy when you have some time off .
