It's that time of year when I love to listen to Christmas songs and wish I was still the Mommy of three wonderful, mischievous little boys whom still believed that if they were very very good Santa would come and leave them lots of goodies under the tree on Christmas.  Alas, those days are long; even their own children are getting big enough that they are beginning to question whether Santa is, in fact, real.  However, thanks to adorable scrapbooking kits, I can scrap to my hearts content about Santa and the fun times of Christmas!

CathyK Designs' Dear Santa is one such kit.  Dear Santa is a celebration of Christmas and letters to Santa. With the wide assortment of papers and fun embellishments, you'll be delighted that you have this kit to scrap all of your Christmas layouts. Download includes: 15 papers, 2 doodled borders, ricrac, smushed ribbon, 4 curly ribbons, row of stitching, bead scatter (shadowed and unshadowed), paint splatter, North Pole postmark, 2 acrylic frames, 3 stamp frames (single photo, double photo, and triple photo), string frame, notepaper, doodled list paper, doodled North Pole sign, doodled Santa Claus, 2 doodled stamps, ho ho ho wordart, doodled reindeer, doodled tree, envelope with sticker, pencil, 3 swirls, string bow, 3 flowers, 2 folded circle stacks, 2 buttons, and a staple.And, it is Scrap for Hire/Scrap for Others (S4H/S4O) friendly!

I love the old song Santa, Baby by Eartha Kitt so I used the song lyrics for a fun page using the Dear Santa kitNuttin For Christmas is another old Christmas song I like and I found the perfect photo of my grandchildren for a fun page with those lyrics.  It looks like my Grandson really is pouting cause Sissy snitched on him LOL  And because I want to introduce you to the adorable kit by CathyK Designs, I have made you a Dear Santa Quick Page so you can begin to scrap about all your Dear Santa letter and memories.


I hope you have a great week!  Hugz and Peace :)
