Eggs....for Christmas...CS #250

Wanna hear a cute story?

We went to go visit Santa Claus.  Charlotte got up on his lap and he of course asked her what she wanted for Christmas.  I really didn't know what she was going to say because I hadn't asked her myself, yet.

So she sat and smiled and then replied, "Eggs!"

I wasn't quite sure that I heard her right, so I said, "Charlotte, honey, what did you say?"

"Eggs!", she said.

Santa and I looked at each other.  Puzzled, I said, "Honey, why do you want eggs for Christmas"?

And she so casually said, "So I can make a cake!"

Do you know how hard it is to find WHITE plastic Easter eggs at CHRISTMAS time?  Oh yes, they HAD to be white.

Santa made a special gold glitter covered egg carton and wrapped it with a big red bow, and Charlotte got her eggs for Christmas!  (BTW, I hear that white plastic eggs only cost around $2 online for a dozen, but you have to pay $10 in shipping...I mean it was the ONLY thing she asked for...)

I'm so sad this is the last sketch for Creative Scrappers for a while!  It has been a source of inspiration and a starting point for years!

I took the whole design of the sketch and scaled it down to a smaller version on the page.  I really liked doing the blocks of paper.  On my title, I machine stitched with some gold thread.  I love gold thread for Xmas pages.

Behind the photo, I wanted to add something to make it stand out more, so I used some modeling paste and a large circle stencil.  Then I splattered with gold mist.  The star I created by painting on vellum with gold Glimmer Glam, cutting out a star shape, and then added another prefab glitter star on top.

I did some layering of some little bits under my photo, and the decided to journal around the outside of the whole page.

You have the whole month of March to participate in the last sketch for Creative Scrappers!!

Stay Scrappy my Friends!
