Better not cry!!!

I know we just started a new year, but I couldn't resist doing another sketch challenge using these pics of my nephews and niece visit to see Santa last year.  I totally relate because I was PETRIFIED of Santa and wouldn't have anything to do with him until I was about 8 years old.

I did this layout for Let's Scrap sketch challenge 12-31-14 and I will admit I though my masking would come out like it did in my mind and from the mask I was using, stars scattered across the paper, when in reality it ended up looking like big drops of snow scattered across the page, but I think in the end it turned out pretty good with the pics I was using ;)
And in trying to stick to some resolutions to use some of my ever growing stash I dug thru my Christmas tub and ran across this paper from BoBunny, Elf Magic, and thought it was perfect to show these pics off with... I even pulled out my cameo and put it to work cutting the trees in the center.
