 Have I really had it
 THAT long.....

daughter in law, and

DT Layout for SOUS

 
It's my reveal day over at
 today, with my first
 layout of 2015.
 
A beautiful photo of two of
 my Granddaughter's visiting
with Santa last month.
 



This week's fab sketch is
 from our Leah.



Using Kaiser papers from the
 "Twig & Berry" Collection,
 and the collectables from the
same collection.




Distressing and layering.




Some Crate Paper bobble trim
 from their
 Peppermint Collection.



The subtitle was the first words
 uttered by Santa when the
 children woke him from
 his slumber in front
 of the fire.
 
Rebekah and Emma were dressed
 in similar jackets and had
 their hair done the same.
 
Santa was a riot. I have to say he is
the BEST Santa I have ever met.
Totally off the cuff.
Daughter and I
were in hysterics, behind the
 children. It went straight
 over their heads.
 
He was marvellous with the children,
and I really hope he is
 there next year.
 
We were at Burns' Cottage, Alloway, Ayr.
You've all heard of Robert Burns
 - our National Scottish poet!
 
The cottage is where he
was born - in 1759.



 
It was lovely to see it transformed into a
 Christmas Wonderland.
 
Though Emma (the youngest at 5)
 was disappointed when she
didn't get to see
Rudolph!




When Santa asked the children the
 requisite question "What would
 you like for Christmas?",
the Elf nearly gave herself a
 hernia, jumping up and down,
when Emma answered,
 truthfully, "Pixie Dust"
 
She wanted to be able to fly
like the reindeer, and figured
Santa would be the
right person to ask!



It was a lovely day with the
children, and methinks the
 last year Rebekah will
 believe without
question!
 
She is already doubting!


I have been a bit liberal with
the sketch this week, adding
a few bits to the bottom of
 the page. I don't do
 white space very well!
 
Remember to visit
for inspiration from my
 fellow Sous Sisters,
 and their wonderful
 layouts from the
 same sketch.
 
I hope you also have time
 to join in our challenge.
 
We love to visit your
blogs and leave
 some love.
 
Until next time.
 
Hugs

Happy New Year

 
Happy New Year everyone!
 
Here's hoping 2015 will bring
all the peace and happiness
 you desire!



I'm going to share with you a
 perpetual calendar I made
 last year with the gorgeous
 Place In Time
 papers from
 Graphic 45.
 
I seriously hoard G45!
 
It takes a lot of will power to
 actually use them!
 
However, I am so glad I did.
 
I will showcase each month's
 page on the 1st of
the month.
 
So, here is January.



I have placed a photo on each
 page of all important
 birthdays.
 
My birthday is in January!
 
Photo taken Christmas Day
 2013!



There are two large pockets
on each page to place birthday
 cards, reminders, etc.
 for that month.
 
Will show closer photo's of pockets
 in February. These photo's were
 taken in a hurry today - where
 does time go!!




I fashioned a store bought frame
with three hooks, and when
 January is over, February
 will take its place.


 
The frame hangs in my
 living room - love it!
 
Happy New Year again.
 
Love & Hugs
