IO Stamps Designer Thursday

This week I'm the Featured Designer over on the Impression Obsession Blog

I wanted to show you the versatility of the Stamps and Dies for Scrapbooking. We see so many gorgeous card creations with the stamps, that I wanted to change it up a bit for you.

For my page, I used this Beautiful Fancy Ornament Die Set along with The Pine Branch Die

The Papers I used in the Layout are from The Paper Loft Gentler Times and Scattered Pine Mountain

I used the sentiment from the Miracle of Christmas and the Numbers from....well The Numbers  set

I added a touch of glitter to the ornament tops, some Prima Flowers and some Hemp Twine to suspend my ornaments

I remember this Christmas Picture Distinctly. Jonathon was about 16 months old at the time. I was so excited to take him to see Santa, as he was not old enough to remember the year before. He really wasn't all that fussy to wait in line. In fact the Mall was crowded and the line was long. Generally he was an easy baby, but not that evening. He managed to squirm and squirm and finally whacked me upside the head with the toy he was holding, slamming my glasses into my face. Needless to say, he was happier once he got to sit on Santa's knee and I was sporting a black eye for the next week or so.

Funny, it was our last visit with Santa. The following year I refrained from the Mall trip as he had a visit with Santa at a work party that his Father had taken him to. The following year, I mustered up the courage to take him again. Being almost four years of age and extremely articulate, he indicated that certainly was NOT going to sit on "that guy's" knee. When I asked him what he meant he stated {and I QUOTE} "Mommy, that is NOT the REAL SANTA. The REAL Santa is far too busy at the North Pole making toys for Christmas and doesn't have time to be hanging around the Mall. LOL.....what a logical child he was and still remains to be. I did manage to convince him that the Spirit of Santa Claus never dies ! To that he will agree.

Happy Stamping!
