Lasting Memories 224 Cookies for Santa

Our challenge theme at Lasting Memories this entire month is "Life's Moments".  For this week the theme is "Captured Moments".  
For my layout I chose these photos of grandkids making "Cookies for Santa."  
There is nothing better than captured moments of sweet little ones.  
Last year we got these cute little Elf on a Shelf apron and 
chef hat outfits after Christmas on clearance. 
 They looked so cute wearing them and were so excited.  
The first page is my granddaughters Katie and Brittany 
and the second page is granddaughter Kenzie and grandson Micah.  
The cookies for Santa title came from Silhouette America #71332 and is pop dotted.  
The Christmas cookies are also from SA #70507 and 70506.  
I inked the edges and pop dotted some of them to make them stand out.  
I added some peppermint candy embellishments and 
Christmas tree paper clips I had in my stash.  
For this page I also used a chipboard frame.  The plate Kenzie and Micah are holding I created with 
with a red charger from Michaels, white vinyl, and another file from Silhouette America.  In the 
framed picture you can see their little milk jar that goes with it.  
I hope you will get your crafty on and join us this week for the "Captured Moments" challenge.  Remember you still have time to do the first challenge "Simple Pleasures".  
Check out both challenges at Lasting Memories.  
Thank you for joining us this week and stay tuned for the next challenge to start next Sunday.  But remember... you have ALL month to link up to each weekly challenge.
