We'll be home for Xmas

The current challenge at Once Upon a Sketch is to write about where you will spend Christmas day. This year our family spent the first week in December in Fiji and we were all very sad when our long anticipated holiday came to an end. Yet, when we all thought about it we decided that being home together at Xmas wasn't all that bad - infact that was where we would all want to be anyway. Even little Sophie (who cried buckets as we were leaving) said that she was glad that we would be at home on Christmas day because Santa would be able to find her easily :)
This page is based on the cool sketch at Once Upon a Sketch. I used my new October Afternoon Christmas collection and my new October Afternoon 'Sprinkler' spray inks along with heaps of fussy cutting and layering. The background makes use of my Prima brick stamp and Prima brick template. i love how a little stamping around the photos helps to make them really 'pop'.

Fabulous page! Love all the misting and stenciling in the background. Sounds like a great holiday, but it's always good to come home isn't it?!
