I'll be participating all three days with products from Pretty Little Studio.    Santa's coming to town and just look at that bag of goodies he's got loaded up! And I have a little blog candy up for grabs myself below. This fun die cut is called Santa 5. There are lots of cute Santa die cuts in the store to chose from for just about any layout or card. You can see them all here! There is even a Santa in a space ship!!!
Have you ever thought about all the places Santa has to visit around the world?! I bet his passport looks amazing! I thought it would be fun to mix some of the elements from the "Let's Go" Collection like the Travel Log Journaling card from the Portland set.
The background papers are from the Holiday Cheer Collection. I wanted to pick up the blue in the Travel Log card, and Holiday Cheer has lots of navy's to choose from. I added a few travel themed embellishments like the "air mail" red white and blue twine, and a stick pin to mark the right location on the map.
To break up the different background papers I added a strip of solid card stock between the two. I used a border punch to make the scallop edge.
Isn't he the cutest? I hope he's checked his list and made sure you're on it!  

Hey!  Before you go!!! Make sure you leave me a comment.  One person who leaves a comment on any of my Visions of Sugar Plums posts (today Dec 6-8)  will be selected to win a $15 gift certificate for Pretty Little Studio.    You have until December 11 to leave a comment.  I'll post the winner on December 13.

Do you love twine?  Its a beautiful compliment to any project.  I'm going to pick a second winner to receive a sampler of twine from The Twinery.  You can check them out here... the have twine in solids and stripes -  as well as metallic mixed blends.
