Here Comes Santa Claus – dt layout for SWAT

SWAT drill #22 is now live! For this challenge, there’s a pagemaps sketch and the twist is to include Santa on your page in some way. For my take on the challenge, I went with photos of my youngest son dressed up like Santa Mickey and used some fabulous Creative Embellishments chippies. One features a silhouette of Santa in his reindeer guided sleigh. Another has his stuck in a chimney and then the title piece of course uses the name “Santa” 😀 Here’s what I came up with:

Here Comes Santa Claus

Here’s a close up of the Santa’s Scroll and quill set. I love this piece! It’s so fun and would be great for layering too:

This is a close up of the chimney piece w/Santa’s boots peeking out:

This close up shows the title piece layered with the doily frame and Harlequin lattice panel. I had to snip the lead reindeer off of the Santa’s Sleigh piece and still wanted to incorporate it on my page, so I added it to the left of my title:
