Letter to Santa Layout

I know everyone is excited the snow is gone but I still enjoyed making this Christmas layout. Maybe it has to do with taking a break from report card writing? I got to use my DCWV Jolly Whimsy Stack for the first time and document my daughter's first letter to Santa. Everything except the photo anchors and ribbon are from the Jolly Whimsy Stack.

I used the sketch from the DCWV April 2015 Stack-a-holic Challenge.

My daughter dictated the letter to me and then signed her own name at the bottom. I love how proud and excited she looks (in her crazy outfit - not sure where that came from).

I also used elements on this page to enter the Scrap Our Stash Contest for April. You have to use items from the word STAMP. Here are mine:

S - scalloped polka dot paper
T - tags
A - anchors for photos
M - matted pictures
P - postage stamps

Challenge #46 at Anything But a Card was to use the colour gold. I used lots of gold to highlight the various aspects of the layout.

Thanks for checking out my first scrappy post!
