Father Christmas

I submitted this page to Scrapbook Magazine ages ago and they have just published it in the current issue. They wanted 6" x 6" which I don't usually like but I did use it as practice for the 12" x 12" page below which is for my vintage photos family album.

I did not manage to catch up with my Christmas crafting apart from this Meery Christmas card design which I backed with red felt and used red felt letters to make into a card. As for the other projects, well there is always next year!

S0 the big day is almost here and I'd just like to wish anyone passing this way a very happy Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous new year. And in the words of Tiny Tim in A Christmas Carol: "God bless us, every one".


  1. I am not a scrapbooker but your pages are s pretty that it sure maked me want to. Just what I need another hobby to spend money on. LOL I hope your page wins. It has my vote. :)

    A very Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    Well done on having your work publish. However, we must say,it really needs an Airedale (or two) in there next time :)

  4. Wonderful news about your page being published, Shirley! And what a darling photo of the vintage Santa and the little girl. May I ask who she is?

    Merry Christmas to you and your family :)

  5. A late Merry Christmas wish and a Happy New Year. Cool that your scrapbook page was featured in a magazine. I have enjoyed looking at your cross stitch, cards and scrapbooking during this past year.
