.....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
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.
