Santa Cutie

Well, I finished a LO tonite!! Woohoo!!!

This was a challenge at Treasured Scrapbooking by Dawn called Half'n'Half - it was def a challenge but I do like the end result.

There is a little story behind this LO though - as with most LO's. This precious angel, and when I say angel I mean it, is Tyler Jonathon Fulton, the son of my BFF from high school Julie. If you are a follower of the blog you have seen me talk of him before in the last few months in LO's I've done with him and Cait. He was born August 1991 just 6 months before Cait and they were the best of friends. He left us suddenly and tragically in December of 1993 - shortly after this picture was taken. He was fascinated with this Santa Clause that I had made in high school and would carry him around everywhere when he came to visit. He was so precious and happy all the time and I miss him so much. It has really helped to scrap about him lately but it also brings to light how long he has been gone. This my friends is my Santa Cutie:


Thanks for stopping by.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas. Please cherish the ones you love as you never know when they will be suddenly taken from you.

Happy Scrappin'!!!

awww, what a cutie!! I love that LO Karen!! SO sweet! and that paper is great! I got myself some and need to play with it =)


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???

With that said..........

Thanks and happy scrappin'!!!!
