Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge & Sketchy Thursdays - Photo with Santa

Well, this week I decided to combine two challenges, something I rarely do. Another Freaky Scrapping Challenge had a challenge to scrap a Christmas Past, while Sketchy Thursdays had the below awesome sketch, with the added requirement to use blue and silver.

I found this old Polaroid of a little me with Santa. I am going to assume it was either Christmas 1990 or 1991 since my sister is not in the photo, and therefore she must not have been born. I started out picking the pink background paper, and decided pink, blue and silver was a great combo to make a non-traditional Christmas color set... and thats really how the two challenges combined. I did not set out with that intention at all in the beginning :)

The background paper is Momenta, and essentially the rest of the stuff came out of the stash. I decided to put the journalling part on the background circle off centre to give it a bit more attitude :)  I left it blank for my mom to fill in because I certainly don't remember this occaision!

I colored the centre of this glitter star with an Elmer's glitter gel pen and added a bling to make it more fun.

Here's a closeup of the details, all the silver stuff is from the same package. I really like how the Polaroid looks - too bad we didn't have a Polaroid camera because the photos are so cute!
