A Visit to Santa!

A few days ago I took Benji and Sophie to the mall to meet my fabulous friend Els and her cute little grandson Baxter. We planned to have morning tea together and take the little ones to see Santa. Well that is exactly what we did and we had such a fun time! All 8 of the photos on my LO (and a whole lot more) were taken by Els and I just loved every one of them. The sketch at Sketchy Thursdays this week was just so perfect for this page because it alowed me to scrap 8 photos without resorting to a double page LO (which is usually the last resort for me).
The papers I used are October Afternoon's new Christmas collection. Adrienne at Scotty Craft managed to get hold of them for me (thankyou soooooo much Adrienne!!!)  and I picked them up yesterday. If you haven't chosen your Xmas papers for this year do take a look at these ones because they are just gorgeous. They are bright, fun, versatile and very 'October Afternoon'. The great thing about October Afternoon's collections is that they do seem to co-ordinate well with each other so that I can see that I will be able to use many of these Xmas themed papers with my other OA papers to scrap non-holiday related pages. I had a lot of fun spraying my background, machine stitching around my 'tree' of photos and fussy cutting elements from the papers to layer on my page. The little squares (presents) around the bottom of my 'tree' are scrapware chipboard.
