dear santa, i can explain

Every year, we have our holiday family photo taken with Santa. This year, my DD enjoyed chatting with him a bit before our photo shoot started.  She told him in detail what she wanted and answered some questions from him (this part I did not hear very well anymore, lol).

Here is this year's layout.

I used Papertrey's Holly Jolly die, journal cards from Simple Stories, ephemera from Fancy Pants and patterned paper from Echo Park.

I rarely used just one photo on a layout but this one called for it since the photo was a 5 x 7. I tried to restrain myself from adding more elements and tried to leave enough "white space" to give the eyes some rest.

I am also linking this to Leigh Penner's Pages with Papertrey here which is to use a tag and twine in your layout.  I used a small Merry Christmas tag and embellished it with a button and twine.

Thanks for stopping by! 



  1. So sweet! I love that you're all in the photo with Santa!

  2. This is just too cute! What a sweet family photo, you gotta love Santa!
