One of our LOAD prompts this month pays tribute to a special man in many of our lives when we are young - Santa Claus.
I remember other children telling me there was no Santa. So one evening I asked my Mother as she was tucking me into bed. She told me that Santa was real as long as I believed. I pulled the covers over my head and said, "Yes, Momma, I believe."
I also remember leaving cookies for Santa but was told he preferred Diet Pepsi to milk. In the late 1960's hardly anyone drank diet drinks. That Santa and my dad preferred the same beverage should have been the tip off. :-)
For this layout, I actually do have a childhood photo and it is in fabulous condition. I used a sketch from earlier this year and flipped it around quite a bit for the final result.
The main embellishment group is a mix of a Crate Paper die cut, a package I created and a misted circle. This page is also for a challenge to use my latest mist purchase. Rudolph Studio Calico mist was part of a Peachy Cheap order a few weeks ago.
I was delighted to have this photo. It is a rarity. If you, like me, don't have a lot of childhood photos, check out the PDF No Photo? No Problem found here.
