Some photos of my DGD, Helen Grace, that I took right before Christmas. I used Basic Grey Figgy Pudding Collection. The photo corner was punched with a MS "deep" punch - scalloped edges with flowers. The ornaments I made with ppr, embossed with a Cuttlebug swiss dots, then I made the gold top with gold foil paper. Tiny red bows were tied and adhered with glue dots. The Santa is an old K&Co embossed sticker that's been in my stash forever! The scallop along the bottom edge of the layout was punched with another MS punch. I edged the striped paper (under the dotted scallop) with a gold foil pen. I added a few poinsettas, gold string and a holly leaf. I also used 3-D paint for the gold dots on the polka-dotted scalloped edge across the bottom. Title work was cut with the Epic - except for the word Christmas, which is chipboard letters that I inked with red ink, then added a few white highlights. Journaling is tucked behind the photo and reads:
Helen Grace, I love these photos of you gently touching the ornaments on the tree. You have been so excited about Christmas this year. I love the way your eyes light up when you look at the tree and when you talk about Santa Claus coming on Christmas Eve. Sure hope he gets out of the North Pole on time….we wouldn’t want him to be late!
