Dear Santa

Time for another blog hop from Imagine If.  You can start off with Tash's Christmas layout and then pop over to view  Katrina's gorgeous Christmas project, or you can start at the Imagine If blog  and check out all of the Design Team links.

This time I have made a simple layout using a photo of my grandson Chase and his husky Rogue using chipboard elements from Imagine If.  I wanted the photo to be the star of the show so I used a chipboard page frame from Jo's Christmas range.  Then I added some other chipboard elements and a few stickers, but overall the layout is very simple and unfussy. I actually enjoy getting back to basics sometimes and this layout reminds me of my very early layouts, but sometimes less is more and using Jo's beautiful products makes it so easy to put a page together.

I painted the overlay and then I sprayed the finished frame with gold shimmer mist.  The background paper is Kaisercraft paper and the stickers are Glitz "joyeux noel" title stickers.
I painted the hat and the bow and glued them to the picture and then I painted the chipboard deer and Father Christmas with black paint.  Because of the wild look in Rogue's eye and the grin on Chase's face I couldn't resist having a little fun with the journaling.  It reads "I want everything on my list .... or the reindeer gets it xoxoxo Chase."
I think by using the chipboard elements and not adding too much to the layout I have kept the photo as the star and the chipboard and stickers complement this and add embellishment without detracting from the photo.
