Here’s a good example of being flexible – the story I’m telling for Day Two actually happened on Day One. No problem, no stress – just telling the stories I want to include.
Page one uses my 6×8 layered template set. I think the circle Santa is from Pretty Little Studio and the little paper clip is 7gypsies. Want to read more about the #2 tag? I’ve got a post on that here.
The paper on page two is vintage wallpaper.
A couple close-ups:
I trimmed this photo to be the same size as the tag on the other side of the transparency. I added a bit of stitching and word stickers from The Girls Paperie Christmas sticker pad.
I added the text directly onto my photo in Photoshop. I’m cropping the images for this section to 5×5 inches x 6.25 inches. The two fonts (which are also used in the digital templates) are Lucia BT and Sentinel.
JOURNALING : For Simon the visit to see Santa was, in Chris’ words, an awesome combination of “comfort and belief.” He walked right up to the man in the red suit, sat on his lap and told him about the legos he would like to have this year and proceeded to ask him, “Do you have those?” Anna, who is not yet two, was super excited at the prospect of seeing Santa. There were lots of excited “Santa” words earlier in the day and on the way to the mall. Once there though, all it took was one look at the big guy and it was a definite no-go for her. Simon got his photo and we headed to dinner at Mucho Gusto. At dinner Anna kept patting her knees and saying “lap” and then “Santa lap Anna.” We asked her if she wanted to go back and sit on Santa’s lap and she said “yes.” We headed back over to the mall and tried again. It was a “yes” up until the last minute. We got her to wave and say hi and it was all good. Next year sweet girl, next year.
