Wendy's Sweet Moment with Santa

Just look at that sweet boy! Oh! Don't you just want to get those little cheeks! So stinkin cute!

With this picture Wendy has managed to capture a moment that has eluded me up to this point. You see, there comes a time every year when Santa sets up shop all over town. His big red chair stuffed and primed, basket of mini candy canes packed to brimming, and happy helpers lined up to man the camera. As mothers we then dress up our little ones and drag them out in the cold to catch that one perfect moment of our sweet child perched happily upon Santa's knee.......at least that's the idea! In reality most of the kids run screaming in the other direction (my daughter among them) as the fat man in the red suit tries to pry them out of Mommy's arms. We laugh it off (although a bit frazzled) just to repeat the process all over again 12 short months later.

Wendy has used this gorgeous layout to capture this precious moment with her son. And. by using the Fancy Pants Magic Paper kit everything went together in a snap! All she had to do was use one piece of cardstock and one of the transparent overlays and she has a quick and easy layout ready to go.

To accent her page Wendy used Twinkle Jewels. I love how they give just a kiss of bling that adds interest and fun to the project as a whole. For her journaling Wendy used Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Pens. Much like the Twinkle Jewels, Copic's Glitter Pens give a light kiss of sparkler that is perfect for accenting. You can use them for journaling or to add color to a stamped image or sticker. I love these pens and find myself reaching for them again and again!

I love the simplicity of this layout and how each element really adds to the whole rather than distracts from the sweet pic.

Thank you Wendy for once again sharing your beautiful work with us!
