Room for everyone on the nice list...

Hello there!  

I'm back on the Blogabella today with another Christmas themed Scenic Saturday. This week I was drawn to the darling image of Tiny Townies on Santa's Lap. The Christmas season just wouldn't be the same without this rite of passage playing out at malls and festivals in the weeks leading up to the big day. It certainly isn't the same experience for every kid who climbs onto or is placed on Santa's lap. I never had any problems with the big guy myself but I can remember younger siblings and kids in line, breaking out in tears when it was their turn to tell Santa what they would like for Christmas. These two cuties seem to be keeping it together though as they read off their wish list to Santa. To dress up the background and make it look like this visit is part of a larger holiday festival, I masked off Santa and the kiddos before stamping just the decorated tree from the Holiday Owl with a Star set on either side of them. I then masked off the trees and stamped the Christmas Village Backdrop even further in the distance. Now it looks like this annual photo op is taking place in a snowy park square with all of the holiday hustle and bustle taking place just off screen. The sentiment from the Christmas Sentiments set keeps the message of this card positive and happy. So, the next time you want to create some Christmas card magic why not work some stamping magic and layer up your background elements for a fun new twist in your scenery?  ;)

Have a wonder filled weekend my friends!
