Just when I thought I was done...

I really have a lot of stuff to do today, but I can't seem to tear myself away from my desk!
This week's sketch challenge from Sketches in Thyme was quite different. I had no idea how I wanted to work this one out. I tried and tried and feel that I strayed quite a ways from the original sketch, but they are supposed to be inspiration, right?
I used my son's letter from Santa on the whole page. After it came in the mail, I asked him to sit in front of the tree so I can get some cool pics. Instead of cut circles, I used lots of bling.
The embellishments were mostly found in the dollar section at Michael's. These are actually gift tags that I changed a bit with more bling.

My daughter doesn't get home from school for at least another hour, so I may be able to start on another project....gotta love vacation time!


  1. I love what you did with the sketch as inspiration! Such a fun idea to use the Santa letter. How fun.
