once upon a sketch - dec

a really quick post cos im running out of time to put this up. 
have given us another great sketch and theme to play along with this month. 
theme: favourite month

with having children born in several different months and a wedding in another month i didnt know which month to do but then decided to do the month of december so i could do the kids christmas photo this year. so my journalling although hidden on my page (in the red and white diagonal stripe paper...which is actually an envelope) is the kids christmas letters to santa.

i normally work with smaller photos but this photo is so cute i didnt want to scan it and print it smaller. my title is small (the flare) but so appropriate. 
and here is how my page turned out

with a close up of the cluster which includes the title...

thanks for looking and any comments you may leave. 
have a merry christmas and a happy new year


  1. This looks lovely! great photo and memories.. and I wish you a very Merry Christmas too!

  2. Lovely Christmas layout. I love the different size mats behind the photo, and the paint drips look fantastic. Great idea to hide the journalling onto the paper, an envelope is a great idea. Thanks for playing along with us at OUAS this month. Please load your layout onto our OUAS FB page.

  3. What a sweet Christmas layout, Bel!! Love how you used your Children's letters to Santa as your journaling. What great memories to be had as the children grow and look back at them!! Thanks for joining us for the December Once Upon A…Sketch Challenge! Blessings, Tracey
