Christmas in July (Layout)

Inspired by all the Christmas in July challenges going on I decided to pull out my daughters 1st Christmas pictures and scrapbook them.

Here is my daughters first meeting with Santa.

I am really excited at how well this turned out. I knew I wanted to use the Night Before Christmas paper. Everything else just fell into place after that. After I got the picture, the word Santa, and the tag for journaling on, it still seemed flat to me, so I added the ribbon to "hold" the journaling tag, and cut some of the key words from a second piece of paper and mounted them on black and raised them with foam tape. That added just enough dimension to finish it off.

Santa Letters- Plantain Cartridge
Tag and Santa Silhouette- A Childs Year
Paper- My Minds Eye
