Edited to add...I used a sketch from Julie Bonner (52 pages 52 weeks) as my inspiration.
Journalling reads; This is the photo I sent out with our Christmas cards to family & friends. The idea was for you to sit 'still' with all of your teddies, while wearing the santa hat. Let's just say that you had fun in amongst all those stuffed toys & the hat was repeatedly thrown/chewed/buried everytime I tried to take a photo. Never mind, at least I was able to snap a happy boy. Merry Christmas Everyone! 2008
Now, I'm cutting it fine on the old deadline so I'll keep it short. All materials Stampin' Up plus some computer font for title & journalling. Here are some close up shots...
I stole this cute border idea from a very cute Princess/Fairy Tales layout by one of the very talented girls over at stamp a memory, can't think who but I will go back & find out to give due credit... edited to add- Beth Stewart is the clever one who deserves the credit!
and to finish off , a little scalloped & crinkled strip with a button embellishment. ( & you can see my pierced scallop border a little better too!)
Thanks for looking : )
