Lasting Memories challenge Anything Goes with "Life's Moments"

Our challenge theme at Lasting Memories this entire month is "Life's Moments".  For this the final week it is "Anything Goes" with the Life Moments Theme.  
For my layout I used Graphic 45 Twas the Night before Christmas paper.  
I love Graphic 45 paper and always have to buy some to use and then I hoard some too.  
Ii inked all the edges with Quick Quotes Powder Puff Ink.  
The twine for the banner and to tie the tag was from Hobby Lobby.  
The doilies I got after Christmas from Michael's Recollection.  
The brads, pinecone, pointsettias, leaves, heart clip and Santa key 
embellishments were from my stash.  
I fussy cut the frame edge and the large Santa circle.  
The holly and clock and stamps are also fussy cut.  

The pictures are of grandkids Kenzie and Micah at the local nursery with Grammy and Papa.  
They always have the most amazing decorations at Christmas and when I saw this gorgeous Santa and sleigh with a deer I had to get pictures.  
Of course being typical Californians he is wearing long sleeves and pants and she is in a Summer dress but that is how we roll here.  
Here is a close up of the banners and flowers.

  4. This is a beautiful layout Suzanne! I love this paper so much and would you believe that I bought it in 12x12 and 8x8?!! Now I don't want to use it. lol I will probably use it in a mini. You make it look so easy to use this gorgeous paper. I love the pics of Kenzie and Micah, so cute. I thought they were with a real Santa until I read what you wrote. I then went back and looked and realized that the Santa and deer where just decorations. lol Duh to me! Hugs, Brenda
