The Magic Of Winter

Good Sunday to you ladies..
Trying to come up with ideas for xmas cards, I thought about tink and dressing her up in xmas clothing...and well, instead of making cards, I thought to make a layout..
The photos are of my DD Amber and DS Aaron at the Artic Circle back in 1999 when my In-laws were here visiting for the holidays.  The kids got to go sleding with raindeer and afterwards we went and visited Santa at the Santa Park. They had such a blast.. The bottom photo is of the landscape in city of Rovaniemi, Finland in December..
 Here are the details of making this layout and some close ups..
