Sunny Christmas

It really is one of those days, I've only just realised when I looked at the photo that I've written the wrong year on it doh - should be December 2007 - looks like I'll be doing some repair work on it tomorrow lol. This is another page for my Australia Album still thousands of photos to get done - I think it's one of those if I actually sat down and did them would get through but keep putting it off cos one page and a couple of photos at a time doesn't seem to get me anywhere lol.

Anyways this is the layout, my other christmas pages for that year have focused on the sun and summer theme, but this one I wanted to use some more traditional papers, these from sassafras lass were just soooooooo cute and the colours worked well with the photo (all the Aussies I spoke to didn't like the tree at all but I thought it was really pretty, it was made up of loads and loads of stars that were slightly pearly - so different to what we have at home, but given the temperature difference am sure this one that didn't need watering was a much more practical option lol), I used a matching journalling card and cut an extra reindeer out of the papers and added a little gem to his nose to finish off the layout.

Supplies: Papers by Sassafras Lass (know one of them is Life At The Pole - Reindeer Kisses, but can't remember what the rest are), Journalling Card by Sassafras Lass, Card by DCWV & Doodlebug
Extras: Black Ink Pad, Red Gem

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...

Paper Cutz Challenge 69 - Anything Goes

Right am off to get some dinner then see how much tidying I can get done before I need to go out (fingers crossed lots so I don't have to do it tomorrow lol) XOX
