Tuesday Talents from our DT!

Today is Tuesday Talents from our DT! I tell ya, the time before Christmas gets a little hectic! The team has some awesome inspiration for you!

Each year Santa tours our neighbourhood distributing lollies from the back of a fire truck to all the assembled children. I used a photo of my son patiently waiting for Santa to arrive

A simple layered page featuring a special photo taken last week of my youngest son meeting the Santa at his Kindy party. I have fussy cut all the present boxes from a 6x6 paper..

"Some Leave Cookies"
This page is all my hubby. Some leave cookies, my hubby leaves beer for Santa.

Mojo Monday Design Team Reveal: #LMC220 Snowflakes Galore

Welcome to Mojo Monday and our fabulous design team reveal. This week's challenge, #LMC220 is all about Snowflakes. Show us those Snowflakes in your layouts, it could be die cuts, background paper, in the photos themselves... The possibilities are endless!

We don't have snow at Christmas as it is summer in the southern hemisphere so rather than get caught up in the whole snowflake thing I just used patterned paper and embellishments to create my Christmas page.

I've chosen some large, spotty paper in wintery colours, which (if you squint) kind of evokes a snowy feel, maybe?
Stay tuned for more Snowflake layouts all week and month. We are looking forward to seeing your layouts. 
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!
