For my project today, I decided to create a scrapbook layout of my daughter's first visit with Santa.  I know, I know, what kind of meanie parents make their kids wait until they're SIX to see Santa??? We've taken her in previous years, but we've either shown up when Santa was taking a break for a few hours, or the line was so unbelievably long that she said forget it.  LOL! This year just *had* to work out! I mean, who even knows how much longer she's going to believe in Santa?? So, I came up with a plan.  They had half days of school on Monday and Tuesday, so I picked her up from the bus stop, came home for a quick lunch, then headed over to the mall in the hopes that we'd finally get to see him without having to spend hours in line.  We walk up, and no one was waiting ahead of us!! Score!! :) She had a lot of fun talking with him, and he was really sweet to just sit there and listen to her ramble on and on. :)

One of the sets that's being released this month is a fantastic sentiment set called Word Salad.  I am a huge lover of sentiment sets, and this one is no exception! For my layout, I chose to use the word "JOY" from the set.  A little stamping, coloring and fussy-cutting, and I have the perfect accent for my page! :)
Well, that's all for me today... Have a great one!

Supplies:
Stamps - Word Salad, Swanky Snowdudes
Paper - Kraft, Stamper's Select White, Pink Paislee (green pattern), Bo Bunny (teal dot)
Ink - Memento Black, Copics
Miscellaneous - Snowflake Punch, Rhinestones, Paper Distresser, Twine, Thickers, Sketch by Scrapbooks, Etc.
