Oh Dear......

.....is it that time of the year already!  The last few weeks... O.K months have passed in some what of a blur and the next few will be more of the same I think.   

We were very brave and ventured to the shopping centre last weekend.  The mission was a photo with the man wearing the red suit .  The last couple of years have been somewhat of a hit and a miss for this with the girls taking turn about with the Christmas Pout... O.K lets be honest - hysterical screaming scene when it comes to actually sitting on the knee of the man with the red suit.

Anyway, even after waiting  for 1 1/2 hours


.... it was smiles all round this year...

I managed to snap a couple of photo's of the girls in between the photographer's

Here are a couple of my favourites


Just love the leg and arm action of Miss N

  
These are printed and are on the desk waiting to be scrapped.

Speaking of scrappy things - I'll end my post with a layout share created for the December PRIMA Build-A-Page which is now up on the Prima BLOG


This is my take on the sketch 

'Oh Dear'

Let's just say that Miss N was far from happy about having her photo taken in this instance.... but I think the photo adorable nevertheless. 


I had lots of fun with the North Country Collection and Ledger papers which I combined with an assortment of Prima older and newer blooms and vines to create a 'Winter Wonderland' effect.  In Australia,our Christmas's are often hot, a white Christmas is something that yours truly can only dream about - creating a winter wonderland effect is the closest I will get to a 'white' Christmas LOL!!.
  

I hand cut a tree and deer elements from patterned paper and sat them amongst the blooms.  


Some super cute Resin Mushrooms also pop up and to add a touch of shimmer, some diamond stickles was added to the tops of them.
