Christmas in July !!!!!


At Scrapbook Boutique we are celebrating Christmas in July.
This photo was taken in 1991 and it was Christie's 2nd Christmas. She was eighteen months old and a little more aware of something special happening and quite excited she would be getting presents from Santa.  Although her maternal grandmother couldn't bear the thought of Santa getting all the credit, and kept telling Christie which presents were from her! (yes mum that is you!!!)
We took her to Highpoint for her Santa photos and she was really looking forward to it until it came time to get on his knee and I moved away! You can't see but in the photo I am kneeling right down next to the chair!  She didn't scream but I could tell she wasn't too sure if this was a good idea and really worth it! Thank goodness it was quick and I got my photo!

The Hero Arts Wreath of Leaves stamp is gorgeous and I love the look the white embossing powder gave it along with the pearls.  If you want to see how this was done....go to the Scrapbook Boutique here
