Santa's Little Helpers

I decided to tackle some of the Christmas pictures from A's first year.  We have a few of them since we celebrated an early Christmas, just the four of us before we left Chile, and then we had two other celebrations in Canada.

I bought a Christmas stack from DCWV about three years ago and have hardly used it so I decided to break it out and get at it.  My friend, Jennifer DeWolfe, sent me a great bunch of goodies this past summer and in it was this awesome pom pom trim.  I'd never used it before but I think it looks great with these papers and colours!  I decided to add a little bow and ribbon to the trim too.

I didn't have any cardstock the shade of red I wanted so I brought out the inks and did it that way.  Gotta love being able to customize things to your needs!

I cut the title out with SCAL and popped it up (I've been doing that lots lately!) and then I decided that I needed a little something between the title and the ribbon so I decided to stitch in some lines.  Why not make it peppermint colours?  lol

Love the trim and pom poms - they work great for this layout! And I must say that A looks so dang cute in that hat!
