First Christmas

April 4, 2020

Today’s page shows off Sarah’s first visit to Santa.  It was taken at Walton’s in Dubbo, a store which is now long gone.   I don’t have any current Christmas Paper on hand and wanted to co-ordinate with Santa’s suit, so I improvised.  I cut 3″ squares from the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (unfortunately no longer available now that Sale-a-Bration is over).  I coloured half the squares using a Sponge Brayer and Real Red ink and the other half using a Sponge Brayer and Shaded Spruce ink.  By adding the colour I think the gold embossing on the paper shows up really well.  To keep with the gold theme, I layered all the squares onto a piece of Gold Foil before attaching it to a 12″ x 12″ Whisper White page.  I added a Basic Black mat to the photo before attaching it to the left hand side of the page.  I used the computer to create “Sarah’s First” and printed it onto Whisper White card.  I stamped “Christmas”  from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set using Real Red ink.  I added the filigree image also from the same stamp set using Shaded Spruce ink.  The title is punched out using the 2″ Circle Punch and attached to Basic Black card punched using the Starburst Punch. The panel is attached to the lowest right hand Designer Series Paper square.  Another simple page but I love how the sponged colour adds so much interest to the Designer Series Paper.  I made sure to attached each colour with the gold embossing running in a different direction for a little more interest.

This photo was one that I found when leafing through my box of photos removed from old albums and picture frames.  I am glad that it is now on a page so my grandchildren can share the memory with me.

Bye for now,
