Waitig for Santa

Happy New Year everyone..
I've been really busy with the holidays and finally got a few minutes (days actually) to get a layout finished..
My DD actually came up with the title and I came up with the layout theme..
Our dog slept under the tree everyday before Christmas.. The tree skirt was so wrinkled from him making "his bed" and at times the tree skirt wasn't even under the tree...
Then the gifts got put under the tree and he couldn't fit under there anymore...
Oh! and before I forget he liked picking the ornaments off of the tree one by one.. His favorites were the one's shaped like Ice Cream cones.. They were the first to go...LOL  :O)

Here are some close ups of the layout and all of the supplies needed.

The title... I won't lie, I actually re-made the colors on the title 3 times, cause I could not decided which looked the best..But, this is what I decided on..Looks pretty good...LOL

Oh my favorite part of the layout...The waiting in the window...I pieced this window together using cuts from the George cartridge.. The curtains are actually a "mini skirt" cut off of the Paper Doll Dress Up cartidge...LOL   and for a final touch, I added some white liquid pearl to the corners of the window for that frosty snowy look..

first of all...So sorry this photo is a bit blurry.. but you can still see the fine detail.. all of the ornaments are cut using "A childs Year "cartridge.. I stickled the tops with silver and tied a red ribbon around the bone..

Santa loves cookies doesn't he?...LOL  Here I have some chocolate chip doggy biscuits for him from our doggy...LOL  sorry, but I couldn't stop giggling when I made these cookies for Santa....LOL   I just think they are so cute, cute, cute...
