My Joy - Webster's Pages "Waiting for Santa"
The "Waiting for Santa" collection from Webster's Pages is simply amazing. It is perfect for showcasing this photo of my daughter. During one of our epic snow storms in January 2010 I asked my daughter to take a photo of herself in her new Christmas coat. I had no idea she would come back with such a beautiful photo. It has easily become one of my favorite photos.
I have always liked the look of pulled back curtains on layouts. The Renaissance Faire collection from Graphic 45 had the most beautiful curtain graphic and I have always loved it. I decided to make my own curtain using Double Dot papers from Bo Bunny. I drew the curtain and adjusted it as I cut. I trimmed the curtain with beautiful ivory rosette ribbon by Maya Road.
I love embellishing my pieces with three dimensional elements. I frequent the "doll house" area of my local crafts stores looking for just the right elements. I bought fencing about a year ago and I haven't used it as often as I like. Well today I decided to add it to this project and I am so pleased with the outcome. I have surrounded the fencing with breathtaking burgandy crinkled roses from Flora Doodles by Petaloo.
Thanks for joining me today.
