Waiting for Santa Layout

I'm back in Richmond and ready to start blogging again! I wanted to share with you a layout I made when I was down in NC visiting my family. It's a simple Christmas layout - the picture is of my adorable little nephew - it was his first Christmas so it was special being able to spend it with him.
I made these flowers by cutting a 2in circle, covering it in score tape and wrapping this ruffly ribbon around it, and topping it off with a Prima flower center. Oh and this swirls - I made those with my fancy new Silhouette! The paper is Websters Pages (one of my faves!) and if you are curious where I find my paper and other fabulous scrappy products - I get them mostly from my friend Melissa Samuels who has her own online shop here. You should definitely check it out - she carries all my fave brands!

If this is your first time to my blog - Welcome! I would love for you to become a follower of my blog or my facebook page!(see link on right side of my blog!)
